You wanted to look like a flame.
Yeah, I wanted to look like a flame. And maybe that subconsciously came from journalists saying, „The flame-haired lead singer… spunky Punky Brewster.” I would get those kinds of write-ups about our band. That’s how people would describe me because I had auburn hair.
So you were like, Let’s lean into this.
Yeah. I think, subconsciously, I thought it was kind of cool even though it had also annoyed me that people only focused on my hair. I was like, Focus on the band, the music. It was very… I wanted it to be cool. I wanted to be cool. But I also had fun expressing myself. I didn’t know how to do this hair, so I found a really cool-sounding salon that was local in Franklin[, Tennessee] and it seemed like a lot of young, cool people worked there. This is where I met Brian.
He was 19, and I had just turned 17, or I was about to turn 17… That was the first time that we met and worked together on my hair. Even though, at the time, I wasn’t sure I’d ever see him again, when you see the „Emergency” video, that’s basically what he and the owner of Pink Mullet did. Isn’t that crazy?

been working with a wonderful production team for the last 8 months on a plaza that i’m curating for @bonnaroo: Sanctuary of Self-Love. it’s been a lot of work and it’s teaching me a lot about the kind of life i truly value. can’t wait to be able to share some of my favorite methods of self-care/connection in such a beautiful place, surrounded by music and art. so much to come – more announcements about the plaza and such. for now: pls enjoy this slide of photos of me standing in a field, skipping past porta potties, etc., that my friend @lindseybyrnes took.
