Produced in collaboration with Texas-based electronic musician, Butcher Bear, the album’s four tracks are an electronic ode to gently outliving one’s enemies. The album’s accompanying poetry book is a collection of somewhat nice (but mostly not nice) poems about her exes. sour grapefruit debuts in February 2019.
In addition to her creative practice as a musician and writer, Hervey is also the founder of #bbatx (an advocacy organization for women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and community organizers) and a communications and experience designer.
