Cait talks to Vice about Jackie Shane

"One of soul music's great gifts is its power to express suffering and yet somehow simultaneously alleviate it, both for the singer and the listener. I think of that a lot when I hear Jackie Shane sing," Cait tells Vice's Sam Reidel. Pioneering trans soul singer Jackie Shane graced us with a handful of amazing recordings before stepping out of the spotlight in 1971. A brilliant new Numero Group box set collects those sides and finally gives Jackie a chance to tell her own story. Cait and trans musician Mel Stone talk to Sam Reidel about Jackie Shane here.
