IH: Our teenage years are often the time where we expand and explore with our music tastes. What music did you have on repeat as a teenager? How did the Atlanta music scene influence you?
B: I grew up in Savannah, Georgia, so I listened to a lot of soul and alternative music because it was a historic city but also a beach town so I had the best of both worlds. I grew up listening to Sade, Incubus, Switchfoot, Creed, Brandy, Destiny’s Child, Cassandra Wilson, Sarah Vaughan, Alanis Morissette, The Blow, TLC, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Rob Thomas, Dave Matthews Band… the list goes on and on.
IH: I can imagine if Clueless had been made in 2020, Cher and Dionne would be taking their cues from your Instagram feed. How would you describe your style?
B: I think my style is a mix of tomboy chic with a little hippie aesthetic splashed in there. I love bucket hats so much. For me personally, comfort is key! I love colour, patterns and textures.
IH: Wardrobe staples?
B: I have to have hats, cool sneakers or oddly shaped shoes, blazers and a classic pair of jeans. Oversize shirts with stacked Dr. Martens are like my favourite go-to.
IH: And finally, if you were to play one song to finalise the end of this current crisis, and a new beginning (when we’re eventually all allowed out), what would it be? What song gives you hope?
B: Soul II Soul – Keep on moving.
