22 • MUSICIAN • WEST HOLLYWOOD
Sasha Spielberg and her older brother Theo have been collaborating since their days on the playground. Now, the pedigreed siblings make up the indie-pop band Wardell. With Sasha on vocals and Theo on guitar, the duo released their debut EP “Brother/Sister” earlier this year and have performed at SXSW, Hotel Café and the Troubadour. INSPIRATION Brenda Lee. I am quite petite and so was she—but her voice made her twice as tall! PERSONAL STYLE Sometimes I’ll wear all black with funky shoes, and other times I’ll go for Natalie Wood in Splendor in the Grass. ON YOUR iPOD Kendrick Lamar and the Allah-Las. FASHION SPLURGE Jenny Reyes has a line called Geronimo, and you best believe I cleaned that line right out. FAVORITE SONG Right now, it’s “Who Knows Where the Time Goes” by Fairport Convention. LIVE MUSIC Jon Brion at Largo. HIDDEN TALENT I can talk with my mouth closed. DREAM JOB Getting paid to sleep. DINING OUT Gjelina, Cafe Stella and Sushi Kimagure Ike in Pasadena. MY CALIFORNIA A car that acts as a closet.
