In a span of less than two decades, Shemekia Copeland has evolved from teenage upstart to one of the most prominent voices in the blues. She’s currently the most feted woman in the blues world and actually had a coronation where she was crowned and declared “Queen of the Blues” at the Chicago Blues Festival in 2011. Copeland’s passion for singing, matched with her huge, blast-furnace voice, gives her music a timeless power and a heart-pounding urgency. Her music comes from deep within her soul and from the streets where she grew up, surrounded by the everyday sounds of the city – street performers, gospel singers, blasting radios, bands in local parks and so much more.

At only 19, Shemekia stepped out of her father’s shadow with the Alligator release of 1998 debut recording, Turn the Heat Up!. Her second album, Wicked, released in 2000, scored three Handy Awards (Song of the Year, Blues Album of the Year, Contemporary Female Artist of the Year) and a GRAMMY nomination. Copeland’s latest Telarc recording, 33 1/3, was produced by Oliver Wood and released September 25, 2012. Late in 2012, 33 1/3 received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Blues Album.
