Hear Nebraska Internship Applications Due Today

Today is the final day to apply for Hear Nebraska internships and, now that the news about Rabble Mill — the new organization resulting from our merger with The Bay — is out in the open, the opportunity is all the more exciting.

We are looking for young talented creatives to join our team in multimedia, social media, editorial and event planning positions. As part of a new organization with a youth-centric mission, you’ll assist as we launch new programs and strengthen existing ones — including the Good Living Tour, Take Cover and so much more.

Find the application here. Email our managing editor with questions at andrews@hearnebraska.org.

Alexa Kriss romps through Omaha in “I Believe In Love” video

Midwest singer/songwriter Alexa Kriss came to Nebraska over the summer to film a night on the town for her new video “I Believe In Love.” Made with director Darcy J. L. Bahensky and videographer Brent Scott Maze, it charts a romp through Omaha with a wedding party and a night on stage at Lincoln’s Zoo Bar.

Kriss debuted “I Believe In Love” at The Bay Friday night during a joint show with Lincoln singer/songwriter Alli And I, who appears multiple times throughout the video. The song itself blends classic and modern, with a mid-70’s piano pop start and a sweeping finish, all following the lead of Kriss’ buttery smooth voice.

Watch “I Believe In Love” below:
