Haylee Anne and Angela Bortone took a Twitter friendship to the next level, eventually joining forces with Jessica Caldas, Angela Davis Johnson, and Danielle Deadwyler to become the Living Melody Collective. This group of Atlanta-based, female-identifying artists is all about participating in and uplifting their community through creative projects.
Peachy Keen chatted with Haylee Anne and Angela Bortone on a Saturday morning amongst Haylee Ann’s cat babies—who added a few sound effects for this episode. We discussed the group’s commitment to provide support to each other (especially as artist parents) and some of their individual backgrounds before getting into the nitty-gritty:
