With Scissor Sisters and as a solo artist, Jake Shears excels at revitalizing classic sounds and bringing queer culture into the mainstream. As Scissor Sisters' charismatic, proudly gay frontman, Shears and company crafts a dynamic combination of '70s-style glitter rock, house music, and electroclash on albums including their self-titled 2004 debut and 2006's Ta-Dah, which won a strong following with the LGBTQ community and in the U.K., where they topped the pop charts. On his own, Shears wrote his memoir and took on stage work that spanned co-writing the music for a musical adaptation of Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City and making his Broadway debut in Kinky Boots. All of these aspects -- as well as the creative rebirth he experienced in New Orleans -- were reflected in his 2018 self-titled debut album, which cast him as an enduring persona in the vein of his idol Bryan Ferry.
