Describe your sense of style.
"I'd say it's utilitarian chic: casual but tailored, classic with modern touches and one-of-a-kind embellishments. I also love indigenous textiles from the American Southwest, Southeast Asia, Peru, and around the world."
What are you favorite Bay Area shops?
"My favorite vintage shop is Isso in Hayes Valley. Marie Biscarra, who owns the shop, finds local items and vendors and has an incredible sense of taste. Plus they carry Ladybird S.F. accessories, which I also love. A lot of my good guy friends work at BLVCK SCVLE, an S.F.-based men's line has really taken off lately."
Do you have a favorite "go-to" item of late?
"My Rocky Heart unisex tank by Pnoy Apparel gets major rotation in my wardrobe because it has the perfect relaxed fit and still looks fresh after so many washes."
Does your personal style differ from your stage style?
"Definitely! I enjoy the actual transformation. I'm usually low key with natural makeup, crewneck sweaters, skinny jeans and a couple key seasonal pieces during the day. But onstage, it's all about the wow factor: lip tattoos, knuckle rings, heavy metal body chains, and glam hair and lashes. I am careful not to go overboard though, since I see that many women artists try to Gaga-it out and end up looking artificial and tacky. I wouldn't want anything to overshadow my performance."
What's your favorite after-gig watering hole?
"Eve and John Colins are my new fave spots."
Who are your musical icons?
"Grace Jones, Sade, and Madonna."
