9am to 9pm with Babehoven

By Babehoven

Over the last year, “a day in the life” has never looked so stagnant. What was once routine has become standstill; we’ve lost the little rituals we used to take for granted. To find them again, we have to look at life a little differently. We created our ongoing series 9am to 9pm to get a glimpse into where artists find creative inspiration in their daily lives.

In this edition, we take a peek into the day-to-day life of Babehoven’s Maya Bon in the moments leading up to the project’s new EP, Nastavi, Calliope, out tomorrow. Read the photo diary below to hear Maya discuss her adventures around the Hudson Valley, her collection of plants, and her post-band practice Bachelorette screenings.

10:01 a.m. I wake up and head downstairs to make some tea. As the water boils, I admire my shelf of collected gems.

10:03 a.m. Then, I admire my plants. I purchased the Juncus plant on the bottom shelf last week at the farmers market—I think they’re pretty special.

10:12 a.m. I mozy onto our screened porch to play some autoharp while I drink my tea. There is a misty chill in the air, which feels refreshing and cozy.

1:06 a.m. I head out to get lunch at a new spot in town with a friend. We are able to sit inside and eat, which feels like a real vaxxed-life-luxury!

1:12 p.m. After lunch, we walk around Hudson and do some window shopping. We pass a beautiful church on Warren St.

3:02 p.m. I drive to Olana State Historic Site to walk around and enjoy the views. 

3:20 p.m. I love the textures and colors of all of the plants they have growing. 

8:58 p.m. We have band practice in our basement with two new members: Reese and Leor. We are figuring out how to translate our songs to a live setting again. It’s a fun and complex challenge and it feels great to work with new friends.

10:47 p.m. After practice, we project the Bachelorette in our living room with our housemates and some more friends come over to watch. We eat cheesy popcorn and ice cream and have to put subtitles on the show because we talk loudly throughout the drama.
