Shemekia Copeland

shemekia copelandShemekia Copeland’s instantly
the recognizable voice never holds back its skillfulness of being sultry, assertive and roaring.

Projecting a maturity beyond her years, Copeland fashioned herself as a powerful, soul-inflected shouter in the tradition of Koko Taylor and Etta James.

She delivers every song with unparalleled honesty and passion. Her wide-open vision of contemporary Americana roots and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with an up-to-the-minute musical and lyrical approach.

With her new Alligator Records album,” America’s Child“, Copeland confidently announces an electrifying new chapter in her constantly evolving story.

America’s Child is a courageous and fiery statement of purpose, a major step forward for the singer whose musical consciousness continues to expand as her star continues to rise. America’s Child is by far Copeland’s most compelling work yet, with music swelling beyond blues and into spirited Americana, with elements of rock, soul, and country.

Kevin Burt

Kevin B.F. BurtKevin “B.F.” Burt is a self-taught musician (vocals, harmonica, and guitar) whose smooth, warm vocal presentation sets a mood of relaxed exhilaration, with a welcome mixture of serious music and infectious humor audiences of all ages seem to enjoy.

For more than 25 years Kevin has been electrifying audiences throughout the Midwest dispelling the myth that true blues has no roots in Iowa. His soul-inspired presentation is unique which consistently get him compared to a range of artists like Bill Withers and Aaron Neville, with the ability to build an audience rapport that has been compared to B.B. King.

      You are welcome! If you ever visit just make sure you stop by to see what’s going in the city! Thanks for your comment! 

  2. This sounds like a great time! I grew up listening to Aaron Neville with my mother, so the reference to him brings back great memories! The descriptions of the artists are very elaborate and really leaves you wanting to hear them for yourself! If I were closer, this would be on my calender!

    Hello! Shemekia and Kevin,

    If I were in Chicago, definitely I would attend your Christmas Concert at City Winery. You are very talented musicians. I have no doubt those who will attend your concert will be blown away! 

    I got your music on Unlimited Amazon Prime Music and you have a very good and well balanced quality sound. The voice and all the instruments are great!

    I was listening to your song “Stay A Little longer, Santa” Very nice Jazz. Great for this Christmas season!

    I love music and play the guitar but I am not as good as Kevin! For sure if I would be near I would be motivated to be a better player. The guitar solos he plays are great. The solo on  “When A Woman’s Had Enough” is brilliantly played. The acoustic guitar is amazing on “Beat Up Guitar”

    Shemekia vocals on “It’s My Own Tears” is blues I love to listen.

    Do you have a video on any of your performances? I would love to watch you.
