“Shemekia’s a ball-of-fire vocalist with a voice that’s part Memphis, part Chicago and all woman… devastatingly powerful. She’s a great singer, period.” —Chicago Sun-Times
“Shemekia captures the timelessness of the blues while spinning it forward with remarkable maturity.” —USA Today
Alligator Records, Groundbreaking vocalist Shemekia Copeland will celebrate the release of her new Grammy-nominated album, Outskirts of Love, with a live performance on Thursday, March 10, 2016 at the Brooklyn Bowl in London. With a voice that is alternately sultry, assertive and roaring, the three-time Grammy nominee’s wide-open vision of contemporary blues, roots and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with a modern musical and lyrical approach. Whether she’s belting out a raucous blues-rocker, firing up a blistering soul-shouter, bringing the spirit to a gospel-fueled R&B rave-up or digging deep down into a subtle, country-tinged ballad, Shemekia Copeland sounds like no one else. The prestigious UK publicationThe Blues says, “Copeland is one of the best singers performing today,” and named Outskirts of Love the 2015 #1 Album Of The Year.
