This Upcoming Singer Is Daughter Of Singer/Actress With Controversial Past! Guess Who!
When the group Lion Babe came together, their goal wasn’t just to deliver good music, but they wanted to send a message to the world. Lion Babe’s motto is about embracing your uniqueness and rocking it. The American neo soul group is comprised of 2 members: vocalist Jillian Hervey and record producer Lucas Goodman.
The group derived it’s name from Goodman’s zodiac sign as he is a Leo and from Hervey’s golden mane which resembles that of a lion.
Both Goldman and Hervey made a musical connection when Hervey was attending New York college. A dance major interested in perfromance art, Hervey had the task of performing a dance to original music. She knew exactly who to call.
After contacting Goodman, they had a conversation that led to Hervey’s interest in signing. Goodman encouraged her as he believed her soulful sound was very similar to Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu.
With a strong underground following, the group has opened up for rapper Childish Gambino, who is actor Donald Glover and collaborated with super music producer, Pharrell Williams. In 2015, Lion Babe released the song “Wonder Woman” which went on to peak at number one on Billboard’s interactive chart Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists.
While Lion Babe’s fan base is growing, lioness Jillian Hervey wants her success to be authentic. In speaking with Page Six, she shared how she avoids telling people who her famous mother is because she wants to make it on her own merits.
