“Let’s hope that a European tour is already planned!”

The tone is given right away: pure energy coming right out of the foundry! Shemekia comes back with a heavy-hitter album […]

Three of the songs have been co-written by John Hahn, her manager, producer and song-writer, and Olivier Wood, guitarist with the Wood Brothers, a fourth with Ian Siegal. Not to be forgotten a cover of Albert King’s “Wrapped Up In Love Again”, and another of her father Johnny Copeland’s ‘Devil’s Hand’, both of which enrich the album. All together a superb blues album which Shemekia is presenting live on the 47 shows of her American tour spreading till February. Let’s hope that a European tour is already planned for the following months!

By Dominique Boulay, on Paris On The Move, which gives Outskirts of Love four stars (very good).
