Shadow Spotlight: Lion Babe

April 16 / 18 Hello! I wasn’t sure who I wanted to shine the spotlight on, but I lightning bolt hit my brain: Lion Babe. Lion Babe is an alternative r&b/neo-soul group from New York City. The duo comprises of Jillian Hervey, daughter of actress, singer and former Miss America Vanessa Williams and Lucas Goodman. The duo met through a mutual friend at a party, after that, they didn’t stay connected. That changed when they followed each other on MySpace. Hervey moved to New York to attend New York College. She was doing a dance piece for the school and that’s when she contacted Goodman. Hervey was in school to take up dance, but she wanted to be a singer, Goodman encouraged her to do so. Soon the duo became Lion Babe, due to the fact that Goodman is a Leo and Hervey’s big hairstyle. In December 2012, they released “Treat Me Like Fire“. In 2013 they were the opening act for Childish Gambino at the SXSW Festival. He would later be featured on their …
