Remembering Jackie Shane, 1940-2019

Pioneering trans soul goddess Jackie Shane passed away on February 21, shortly after receiving her first-ever Grammy nomination for Best Historical Album for the recent Numero Group compilation of her ‘60s & 70s recordings. Cait Brennan talked to Vice’s Sam Riedel about Jackie and her influence back in 2017. “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 said. Read the Vice article here.
