Seattle’s Shaina Shepherd has a voice that shatters walls. Its power, dynamics, and fortitude put the Big Bad Wolf to shame. But in the last year or two, Shepherd has learned her skill resides in more than just her pipes.
She’s recently stepped into the role of artistic organizer and South End creative beacon. And her latest project is a tribute show at April 20 at the Royal Room dedicated to the late, great Nina Simone.
