Penn Badgley is an actor and musician. He currently fronts the band Mothxr, and, in the past, starred in the show Gossip Girl.
Kendra Foster has written for the likes of Mark Ronson, Sunshine Anderson &, PFunk Allstars, but it was her contributions to D’Angelo’s highly anticipated Black Messiah album that had heads turning, not only for her illustrious singing on the record as part of The Vanguard but for her brilliant co-writing on eight of the album’s tracks. Her work with D’Angelo won her two Grammys for Best R&B Album and Best R&B Song (“Really Love”).
Penn Badgley (Mothxr, Gossip Girl) and Kendra Foster (D’Angelo, Parliament Funkadelic) sat down at Samsung 837 in New York City last year to talk artistic collaboration, Black Messiah and all things D’Angelo. Foster also let slip that there are new D’Angelo tracks on the horizon. Subscribe now on iTunes or Stitcher to stay in the loop on future Talkhouse Podcasts.
