“Shawna Virago is more punk than the punks” – SF WEEKLY

The album’s second single ‘Last Night’s Sugar’ is “a harrowing tale of late-night escapades and works off her haunting vocal delivery and solemn acoustics” (

‘LAST NIGHT’S SUGAR’ is dark and intimate, a longing to abandon the heartbreaking reality of economic ruin and return to a sweeter past. _”Some people have no surprises in them / You can set your clock by their routines / I’m watching my baby lose his paycheck / To rigged slot machines”_



Shawna Virago is a transgender music pioneer celebrated for her striking lyric-based songs. Her music twists together folk, punk and trans-americana, offering raw observations about survival in a predatory world, queer love, sticking up for the underdog, and gender rebels.
