The L.A. Post says: “Geri X is a poet, rebel, and a singer with a voice that is demanding to be heard. She carries the intensity of a Mike Tyson punch with the serene beauty of one of the best female vocalists of this era.” They’re not wrong.
This Bulgarian-born songstress now hails from St. Petersburg, FL, but she’s been touring the US and Europe since a young age. Her haunting, unmistakable voice leads songs reminiscent of PJ Harvey, Mazzy Star, or Amy Winehouse.
Besides that all that beautiful music Geri creates, she’s a great cook! We asked her a few questions about her foodieness and included one of her music videos for you at the end at the end of this post. Enjoy! We’re so excited to see what she cooks up for you guys.
CK: What inspired your love for cooking?
Geri X: My mom was my biggest inspiration. Since I could walk I’ve been in the kitchen by her side learning. Then the Food Network channel absorbed all my free time.
CK: What’s your favorite music to listen to when you’re in the kitchen?
GX: Either iron chef America or chopped. Haha I watch cooking shows while cooking. Always.
CK: What’s the best meal you’ve had on tour? The worst?
GX: Best–the Chicken Dijonaise at the Weary Traveler [in Madison, WI]. Worst–Krystal burgers that made the whole band poop themselves.
CK: Name your favorite dish to cook. If it had a theme song, what would it be?
GX: Soup! It would be some sort of Django Reinhardt tune.
CK: If you could have anyone cater your next tour, who would it be?
GX: Chef Alex Guarnaschelli. ?
CK: If you could cook dinner for anyone, who would it be?
GX: Anthony Bourdain.
