Cover Story: Yuna
Yuna’s sound and purpose are unapologetic, while her aesthetic intersects fashion, feminism, and passion. From her humble beginnings sharing her music on her blog, to now gracing international stages, she speaks to her transition from Malaysia to LA, being a Muslim pop star, and the rage and love of Rouge.
The guitarist and vocalist of Big Thief talks about alien themes on their latest album, U.F.O.F., her solo project, and maintaining creativity in an industry fueled by product.
Cate Le Bon
From self-imposed alienation to learning a new skill, Cate Le Bon opens up about taping into the unselfconscious awareness of childhood, and how writing Reward mirrored the process of building furniture.
This summer, Azniv Korkejian, who performs as Bedouine, released her sophomore album, Bird Songs of a Killjoy, and spoke to She Shreds about the power of setting her music free.
For the last decade, the Malian singer-songwriter has woven traditional rhythms, inventive guitar melodies, and her personal stories to create her bold and unafraid sound.
