Hear the award-winning blues, soul and Americana singer Shemekia Copeland who possesses one of the most instantly recognizable and deeply soulful roots music voices of our time.

Winner of the 2021 Blues Music Award for B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year, Copeland connects with her audience on an intensely personal level, taking them with her on what The Wall Street Journal calls “a consequential ride” of “bold and timely blues.” NPR Music says “Shemekia Copland has established herself as one of the leading blues artists of our time.” The Houston Chronicle describes her songs as “resilient pleas for a kinder tomorrow.”
