Born and raised in New York/New Jersey, places not immediately associated with blues, Shemekia Copeland’s career tips more analogous to scions to Hall of Fame athletes than musicians. Blessed with an emotive, sophisticated voice, the daughter of blues great Johnny Copeland adds to the legacy of her literal and associative forebearers by making a brand of soulful, earthy R&B reminiscent of previous legends. On her most recent release, 33¹/3, she fuses American roots music with real-time issues. – Kahron Spearman
