Longtime friend of Socialite Life Pandora Boxx made a splash when we met her on RuPaul's Drag Race Season two and she’s continued to bring joy to drag fans everywhere not only with her looks and humor but her fabulous, funny songs like “Cooter”, “Nice Car” and “Knew You Seemed Shady” (with our other friend Adam Barta) as well as the impactful “Different”. Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, Pandora is releasing her first full-length album this year. 

Always wanting to give her fans more, Pandora is also hoping to add a music video and visualizations for some of the tracks and has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise the money she needs to make her musical dreams come true (and she’s got some sweet perks for you)!    

We had the chance to chat with Pandora Boxx about her latest project and get a few hints about what we can expect from her new album.

What inspired you to release a full album?

I've always loved music since I was a kid. When I was feeling alone or depressed, I'd lock myself in my room and dance around to Madonna. In those moments, I felt such happiness. I was able to fulfill this childhood dream of being a rockstar from my successful Kickstarter campaign. I'll always be so grateful for that.

What was the process of putting together your debut album like for you?

It has been a long process. Three years actually. But it's also been fun. I was lucky to have my friend Brandon James Gwinn reach out to me about helping produce it. This album wouldn't be the same without him. He just got what I was trying to do.

What was the biggest challenge?

The biggest challenge was just timing and scheduling. Brandon lives in NYC and I live in LA. Also, we are both entertainers and our schedules can get hectic.

The songs have some titles that will make your fans smile. What is the story (if you want to share) about some of the new ones?

I did reveal all of the song titles to my Kickstarter backers. But I guess I could let everyone know a few. Fans of Drag Race will certainly appreciate the song called “Raspberries”. There is also a track called “Scurvy” but it's not what people will be expecting at all.

I know songs are like kids…do you have a favorite track on the album?

They definitely are. Each song is important to me especially because I wrote all of them. They are much more personal than anything I've ever done. There is a track called “Pill” and I would say that is my favorite.

Have you decided what song you want to make a video for yet?

Yes. I do know. *wink*

Any teaser on the visualizations?

Depending on how much I raise on my new Indiegogo campaign will kind of determine that but I'd definitely like to do some lyric videos. I've also seen a lot of artists do kind of like lite music videos. If that makes sense? You still get some visuals but not a full-on music video budget. They cost a lot! 

Do you have collaborators in mind or folks already committed to appear in the video?

Not yet. I'm still working on the details of it. But the song is a celebration of being true to yourself and not caring what others think.

Once this album and video project is complete, what’s next for you?  

Right now, my focus is on the album so we'll have to see what comes next.

Do you have a special message for your fans at Socialite Life?

Thank you to Socialite Life for one because y'all have been amazingly supportive to me. To everyone who took the time to read this, thank you! I appreciate all of you.
