Brooklyn-based Seasick Mama can’t be confined. She breaks genres and the traditional expectations of a pop artist. Interestingly enough, she also possesses the motherly attributes of her stage name by taking care of everyone around her with a smile. On the day of her photoshoot for Ladygunn, she makes breakfast and lunch for the crew while throwing in an erotic antidote every now and then, discussing her drummer boyfriend and sex life. She could seem like a bit of an exhibitionist, but at the same time she seems a little reserved. Since women are often thought as complex, in this case, it’s particularly true.
With her large brown eyes and charming giggle, the bewitching singer-songwriter is establishing well-deserved attention with her robust voice and versatile musical stylings on her debut EP Dead Like Money. Already working with mastermind David Sitek of TV on the Radio, Sam Farrar from Phantom Planet, and Peter Wade of MNDR on her next EP, she’s well on her way to fulfilling her musical aspirations.
Determined to make it in this unpredictable industry, it seems that it is indeed in the cards for her. So, Seasick Mama sits down with Ladygunn to answer questions about her current and forthcoming EPs, her wild past, and lessons learned. She proves to be intelligent, well spoken, and seems to really have it together, even if she admits she didn’t always.
