ƒ??Copeland is a singer with fervor and funk, power and range.ƒ? ƒ?? USA Today
Alligator Records recording artist, Shemekia Copeland is no stranger to self-expression. Whether sheƒ??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. After stepping out of her fatherƒ??s shadow in 1998 with her groundbreaking debut CD, Turn The Heat Up, recorded when she was only 18, critics from around the world celebrated her music as fans of all ages agreed that an unstoppable new talent had arrived. ƒ??Nothing short of uncanny,ƒ? said the Village Voice. ƒ??She roars with a sizzling hot intensity,ƒ? added The Boston Globe.
