NIKKI KYNARD'S SOUNDS OF THE SEASON

back to list

For singer, songwriter, and DJ Nikki Kynard, summer is a time for fresh starts and the outfit to match. “Every summer I find a new hat, dress, or maybe a pair of shoes that are both comfortable and sexy. Sometimes it’s a new route to work or a view that I’ve never set eyes on. Once, it was a new love and love lasts forever. Thanks, summer!” With this in mind, Kynard curated a playlist exclusively for GrandLife that speaks to her notion of summer in New York.
