Shemekia Copeland

Oct 10, 2017

Whether she's belting out a raucous blues-rocker, firing up a blistering soul-shouter, bringing the spirit to some gospel-fueled R&B or digging deep down into a subtle, country-tinged ballad, Shemekia Copeland sounds like no one else.  With a multi-faceted voice that's sultry, assertive and roaring, Copeland'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.

Shemekia Copeland was touring on her 2015 release, Outskirts of Love, when she performed at the Orpheum Theater in Sioux Falls on May 25, 2017.  The concert was presented by the Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Society.
