154. Shelly Watson Sings Out

Released: April 11, 2022
Recorded: February 22, 2022


2 hours, 5 minutes


You don’t want a gig, you want a career. And what does that mean to you?” poses Shelly Watson, triple threat in multiple threes, in Arkansas via New York via Southern California. This cabaret singer / burlesaque superstar knows everything from jazz to opera, and has showcased her multitudes of talent for nearly 20 years from dive bars to legendary theaters. She recently completed more than 150 digital shows during the pandemic, and sat down with Viktor after her hip surgery to discuss her drive, her versatility, and determination to continue conquer audiences’ hearts. She goes in on entitlement, passion, fear, money, getting the booking, complexity of song choice, and laughing through it all while wearing superhero boots. [recorded on February 22, 2022]
