What is there not to say about India Shawn? Her vibe is peaceful and focused. Her music is personal, relatable and inspired by experiences that any one of us could be having right now.

The L.A.-born creative is an undeniably gifted singer and songwriter. Working with artists like Monica and singing background for Harry Styles are just parts of her expansive music career. She’s been in the industry for more than a decade and last year dropped a masterful album, Before We Go (Deeper), that includes instant classics like “Cali Love,“ “Too Sweet" (featuring Unknown Mortal Orchestra) and Billboard-charting single “Exchange.”

India recently visited Radio Milwaukee to mentor students involved in Grace Weber’s Music Lab and to perform a Studio Milwaukee Session. She also sat down with me and B~Free, the lab’s music coordinator, for a fun and comfortable conversation about navigating the music business, life and what India is working on next. You can hear an excerpt using the player at the top of the page and find the full interview over at HYFIN.
