Shirley Nanette: Coffeeshop Conversation #171 / A life of singing and and an upcoming headline appearance

By TOM D'ANTONI // Singer Shirley Nanette has sung every kind of music over the decades. She'll be headlining the Albina Soul Revue at Alberta Rose Theater on on Friday, November 16

Back here at World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan…with me today is one of Oregon’s great singers, Shirley Nanette.

She’s sung it all, Jazz, Soul, Blues…you name it.

She’ll be a part of the Albina Soul Revue on Friday, November 16 at Alberta Rose Theater along with many other vintage Soul musicians.

We’ve never met, although she’ll call my KMHD show now and then when she likes something I’ve played. At the end of our conversation, listen to a tune from her famed first album Never Coming Back, it’s called, “All of Your Life.”

I’ve been looking forward to talking to Shirley Nanette.
