Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, Binki Shaprio is one rad gal, there’s no two ways about it. But, it’s her California cool style that got us taking a second (or third or fourth) look. She’s a muse to both musicians and designers alike. You can include Beck, Phillip Lim, Devendra Banhart, and Scott Sternberg from Boy. by Band of Outsiders on her list of admirers.
Binki Shapiro fits into a long line of awesome “girls in the band”, like Nico from the Velvet Underground, she’s one of the guys, yet uniquely feminine. After performing on stage in a dress and heels made her feel nervous, Binki reverted to her signature laid-back style, admitting, “It’s hard to look nice when you’re in a van with a bunch of sweaty boys” – but, some how, she’s does just that and does it flawlessly.
Many know Binki Shapiro from the now disbanded beachy trio, Little Joy, but she is set to release a new album this coming January with Adam Green from the Moldy Peaches. Download their teaser single, Here I am, here.
