EP5. YMF IN FOCUS: Shilpa Ray
This week we debuted our first hour-length YMF: In Focus episode, starring punk icon Shilpa Ray! A New Yorker through and through Shilpa Ray has been making waves since 2003, not only as a solo DIY punk artist but she’s fronted acclaimed bands like Beat the Devil and Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers. She’s been compared to legends like Patti Smith, Nick Cave and Ella Fitzgerald, praised for her searing, howler blues-rock vocals! Now she’s back with her most searing and personal album to date ‘Portrait of A Lady’. Check out our latest episode as Beth & Belle deep dive into Shilpa’s process for the album and find out how it’s been a huge journey of healing for the artist.
‘Yours, Mine & Femme’ is a segment in which we put a spotlight on issues affecting women/feminine identifying persons of all ages, cultures, sexualities and abilities. To catch up on past YMF episodes or to make sure you don’t miss a story, follow us on Instagram and Twitter @YMF_2SER
