A free Shemekia Copeland download

A tip of my hat to blogger Harry Allen for shining a light on Shemekia Copeland, a funky Chicago blues singer.

Her new CD, “Never Going Back,” drops in two weeks.

Till then, I can point you to a FREE MP3 from Ms. Copeland’s 2006 album, “The Soul Truth.” (It was produced by legendary Stax guitarist Steve Cropper.)

To hear “All About You” on my Vox blog, click here. To download it, click the song title below.

She's amazing live. I saw her when she was opening for her dad, Johnny Copeland, I think she was about 17 or so.

^ Oh cool, quirkychick. I had never heard of her. (Or her father, actually.)

Love her! She can blow. She was in Scorce's "Lightning In A Bottle" and blew the roof off the sucka with Robert Cray singing "Pity The Fool."

I meant Martin Scorcese.
