Did you know that Norma began her career as the lead singer of a band called The Shirts?
You can check out one of her performances below:
According to Wikipedia:
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Golden began her career as the lead singer of The Shirts (which headlined CBGB’s in the late 70s). During the early 1990s she performed as part of the duo Golden Carillo with Frank Carillo. They released three albums,Fire in Newtown, Toxic Emotion, and Back for More. She then returned to The Shirts. Since then she has performed solo and with a band. In 1984, her song “Hang Up the Phone” was featured on the soundtrack of the film Sixteen Candles. She performs a revue of songs from her stage career along with originals called Annie Golden’s Velvet Prison.
Quite a difference from her character Norma Romano on Orange Is The New Black.
Maybe she’s mute on OITNB because of her rock and roll past!
