Lucy and I met a few years ago in Los Angeles when I was testing with her agency. Over the years we ended up shooting a few times together. She has a crazy interesting life as a model, a bass player for the band Dear Boy, and as an artist, drawing and painting. I thought this was such a compelling intersection of talents and I’m kind of nosy (some would say curious) so I asked her if she was down for an interview.
I tried a different format with a podcast/recorded interview so bear with the audio inconsistencies and my southern accent. I like working with different interviewing methods and this one felt more conversational, but I don’t think anyone talks on the phone anymore so sometimes that feels awkward. Will you sit in front of your computer and listen to a Soundcloud track? Will you download it to your phone? Maybe if I can get you to listen to this I can trick you into checking out my underground hip-hop mix tape. I don’t know…I’m just playing with ideas here. Make shit, break shit, as they say in Silicon Seattle.
This blog doesn’t support an actual Soundcloud player, so I hosted it on another page. Don’t yell at me, I’m just working with what I have here. Also, if you’re a recording genius and you have tips and hints for recording phone calls, I’d love to hear them. We lost connection around 5 minutes in so if there’s a slight continuity break while we get back into it.

If you are an artist with some shit to say, let me know.
