Hey Eric! Tell us more exciting things Black Pumas have coming up:
EB: The most exciting thing that Black Pumas have coming up is album promo across the country and overseas. Playing with Black Pumas has enabled me to travel to places and experience culture I would otherwise not get to see so soon. I’m excited about observing fashion choices from our musical peers in Paris.
What are three things Austin has over LA?
EB: A few of my favorite things I have experienced here compared to LA
1. For me, there was a quicker receptivity to the busker.
2. It feels like a big city in a small town.
3. Barton Springs!
In your opinion, the best song lyrics ever written?
EB: Best lyrics I’d have to give to Queen! -for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Are the Champions” and Nasir’s “Adam and Eve” — The Black Pumas are currently working on a custom made cover of that one.
What will finally break the internet?
EB: Love will finally break the internet!
