Q: I love the production! What was the inspiration behind “Eagleaire”?
SOLEIL: For me, the song was initially inspired by our album cover. We knew we needed to share one more song together that fit the mood of the album, and while many of the lyrics and melodies have their own context, a huge chunk of them are a reflection of the art you see before you start listening.
Q: I’m always curious about the artist’s backstory. Was there a pivotal moment when you decided to follow your path as a musician?
BEAUGÉ: It was a natural progression as art has always been a part of the Beaugé family lineage. However, no matter how much I strayed my path led me back to these waters. And along the way, I met Soleil. In a sense, it was a collection of moments rather than a single epiphany.
Q: If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take one song or album to listen to, what would it be?
SOLEIL: It would have to be The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill by Miss Lauryn Hill because I think it’s useless to pretend like it’s not the best album ever made.
BEAUGÉ: Outkast Aquemini
Q: Who would you most like to collaborate with, if it could be anyone in the world?
SOLEIL: I actually have a list… but at the top is Lianne La Havas. She has the prettiest voice I’ve ever heard and her music is on a whole other level.
BEAUGÉ: Tyler The Creator
Q: What is coming up next for you?
BEAUGÉ & SOLEIL: The time and space to make some more music!!!!! Also can’t wait to quit my current day job!!!!!
Q: What would you like to tell your supporters out there?
SOLEIL: Luv u, dad!
BEAUGÉ: We love you!
