BØRNS Opens Up About Inspiration, Success & Newfound Fame

BØRNS is all smiles in a photo from his spread in Eighty-Nine magazine, available now.

Here’s what the 25-year-old singer had to share with the mag.

On his newfound fame: “I can’t tell if the past year has felt like the longest year in my life or the quickest. It’s crazy to try to even think of everywhere that I’ve been because it was in such a short amount of time. But I think everything has been a very natural progression and I feel like the amount of shows that I played, how I grew with my band that I tour with and all the music was good, and that to me is the success that I want to feel.”

On growing up in the mid-west: “Well, [Grand Haven, Michigan] is right on the lake, a little harbor town, with really beautiful beaches, sand dunes. It’s a very serene environment, so I guess just growing up in an environment like that just gives you an inner peace. I had a lot of time and space to think and revel in stuff, you know?”

On how he found his aesthetic: “A good amount of influences from the past. I’ve always been drawn to this musical era in the late ’60s and ’70s where people were wearing a lot of colorful things and guys were wearing women’s clothing, and the music was very alive and it was stuff that you’ve never heard before.”
