Born to Rock

Beverly Bond was inspired by her mother’s love for a wide variety of music—from soul to African to world music—at an early age. She was raised in Maryland and as a child she started collecting albums and amassed so many that eventually she said, “Everybody that came to my house thought I was a DJ ‘cause they would see my record collection is crazy.” It wouldn’t be until later in life that she would return to the turntables, but a seed was planted.
