About Shirley Gnome
THE #1 NEW ARTIST FROM THE 2019 PHILADELPHIA FOLK FESTIVAL BASED ON YOUR SURVEYS!
“She’s dark, sexy, over-the-top and she’ll sing songs that will make sailors blush: meet cabaret comedian extraordinaire Shirley Gnome. How can one woman be so honestly obscene and so entertaining?” -Sunday Mail, Australia
From the west coast of Canada comes this multi-award winning cabaret musician, whose all-original, uncensored music about human nature is hilarious, honest, subversive, smart, empowering, taboo and not for the faint of heart. Her cleverly carnal lyrics go down smooth with her inappropriately gorgeous vocals, and her charm will disarm you through even the most provocative topics. Her outlandish cover songs transform top 40 hits into dark social satire.
After a surprise win of Patrick Maliha’s The People’s Champ of Comedy in 2012, Gnome began working her charms in comedy clubs, music venues, and burlesque festivals across Canada. Gnome’s underground cult status got an international upgrade when she hit the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013, receiving rave reviews. She continued this success by touring internationally, wowing audiences and critics alike with sell out shows across Canada, the US, Australia, and New Zealand. She closed out the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s all-woman showcase UpFront in 2017. Her party anthem The Glitter Song went viral that same year, stacking up over half a million views.
She signed with 604 Records, and her 4th album Taking It Up The Notch debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts in Canada when it debuted in 2017. She has released four full-length albums since her debut in 2009, which you can hear frequently on SiriusXM stations all over North America. You may have also heard her on Dan Savage’s chart topping podcast The Savage Lovecast.
