The James Hunter Six & Shemekia Copeland

  • When you most likely first heard James Hunter: on the British bluesman’s 2006 debut album People Gonna Talk, which earned him critical praise and famous fans including Sharon Jones and Allen Toussaint
  • What he was doing before that: singing backup vocals on Van Morrison’s tours in the ’90s, busking, and working as a West London laborer
  • What he’s been doing since: capturing his raspy, throwback sound alongside his bandmates on live stages, taxidermied stages, and several albums. His latest, 2015’s Hold On, was produced by Gabriel Roth, who declares of Hunter, “his songwriting shares the masterful architecture and the inspired creativity of Smokey Robinson, each rhyme and rhythm crafted meticulously, somehow twisting familiar themes into unfamiliar new shapes.”
  • How soul-tinged electric blues singer Shemekia Copeland got her start: singing at the Cotton Club at age 10 and touring as the opening act for her dad, Texas blues artist Johnny Clyde Copeland
  • How the Chicago Sun-Times describes her: “Shemekia’s a ball-of-fire vocalist with a voice that’s part Memphis, part Chicago, and all woman…devastatingly powerful.”
  • Proof of that devastatingly powerful sound: all over the genre-bending Outskirts of Love, her 2015 album that pummels the senses with roots-rock, country, blues, and lyrics that tackle social ills
