Congratulations to Toshi Reagon, who’s latest album, Have You Heard, took home the 2006 Outmusic Award for Outstanding Songwriter this past Sunday. Have You Heard was also nominated for Best New Recording. The Outmusic Awards were handed out in a ceremony June 11 at the Knitting Factory in New York City. Between the awards and a feature segment in the May episode of In The Life (the Gay and Lesbian Newsmagazine on Public Television), more and more folks are hearing Toshi for the first time. If you haven’t heard her yet, check out Toshi’s tour dates (including a highly anticipated return to the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival on August 11, with special guest Bernice Johnson Reagon) and find out what all the buzz is about – you won’t be sorry!
