Shemekia Copeland to play The Star Theater August 24th
Soul’d Out Productions proudly presents Blues singer Shemekia Copeland at The Star Theater, August 24th.
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. With a voice that is alternately sultry, assertive and roaring, Shemekia’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. The Chicago Tribune says Copeland delivers “Gale Force singing and power” with a “unique, gutsy style, vibrant emotional palette and intuitive grasp of the music.” NPR Music calls her “fiercely expressive.”
