In This Episode

Born Suzannah Powell, singer/songwriter Boyfriend is a Nashville native who is spreading her storytelling wings in New Orleans as the original rap cabaret artist. Her love of musical theater translates to a burlesque style live show complete with vintage lingerie, big ass hair rollers, and the occasional food fight.  

We’d like to thank our friends at The Ritz Carlton New Orleans for supporting the Backstage Chats Foundation and hosting our interview in the world famous French Quarter.
