“New Queen of the Blues”, Shemekia Copeland, will perform in concert at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Saturday, November 10, 2018.  Whether she’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 sounds like no one else. With a voice that is alternately sultry, assertive and roaring, her 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 came to her singing career naturally. Her bluesman father recognized his daughter’s talent early on and always encouraged her to sing at home. He even brought her on stage to sing at Harlem’s famed Cotton Club when she was just eight. When she was 15 and her father’s health began to slow him down, she received the calling; all she wanted to do was sing. She stepped out of her father’s shadow in 1998 with her groundbreaking debut, “Turn The Heat Up”, recorded when she was only 18.  Copeland followed up with 2000’s Grammy-nominated “Wicked”, 2002’s “Talking To Strangers”, and 2005’s” The Soul Truth”.  In that short period of time, she earned eight Blues Music Awards, a host of Living Blues Awards (including the
prestigious 2010 Blues Artist Of The Year), and more accolades from fans, critics, and fellow musicians.
