about

Big Crown is proud to present this gem of a soul record from Portland’s own Shirley Nanette. The record walks the line of jazz singer and soulstress coming out with a sound that nods to different eras but is unique in its own right.

In the early seventies, Hank Swarn and Shirley Nanette collaborated on a project called Never Coming Back. Swarn had been on the road for five years, lending his guitar-backing talent to Earl Grant and his band. While on tour, he wrote some tunes that were ultimately released on the Never Coming Back album. Al Nanette approached Hank about putting together a record with Shirley, who was also keen on getting in the studio. Luckily, Swarn already had songs to bring to the session. With the support of some talented local musicians, the album was recorded mostly in one or two takes in a little over a week. Unfortunately, the album saw little exposure. Needless to say, this tremendous effort by Nanette, who continues to sing and perform in Portland, has touched the hearts of many who've recently heard the album for the first time.
