Today’s song is “Heaven Sent Delinquent” by Shawna Virago. This San Francisco native is a singer-songwriter pioneering music space not only for her visionary talent but also her ability to be a voice for the transgender community.
At first listen I was taken by her genuine storylines and enticing melodies. She crafts a rocking folk that has a fly by the seat of her pants. She shows her punk rock edge with her rebellious lyrics dissecting her experiences appealing to those dealing with their own identity issues.
Her storytelling is raw and emotive you can feel her pain and triumphs as she navigates through society’s cruel oppression and bigotry.
This is an artist that will appeal to fans of the Billy Bragg, John Doe, Jeffrey Lee Pierce, Leonard Cohen, and Nick Cave.
This is the title track off the recent album which dropped earlier this year.
