In Episode 8 of Beneath the Rhythm, we interviewed Shana Goldin-Perschbacher, author of upcoming book, Queer Country.
From trailblazing queer musicians of the past, who used country music as a springboard in expressing their sexuality, to emerging non-binary and queer artists navigating the music industry today– with a keen eye and ear Goldin-Perschbacher examines the inherent politics surrounding ‘genre,’ identity in music and how the normative country music standard was ultimately dismantled. We also interviewed Canadian country music singer and author Rae Spoon. A leading voice in the trans, non-binary and queer community, Spoon shares their insight on both the challenges and victories of navigating the current social and music industry landscape.
