About The Band
Born in 1979 Harlem, New York, Shemekia Copeland is the daughter of famous blues musician Johnny Copeland, who helped set her on the path to where she is today. Shemekia had a passion for singing and music, more than likely inspired by her father, and more than once took to the stage before she was even ten years old. However, when her father's health began to fail he took her on tour with him, introducing the world to his talented daughter on the stage. Little did these audiences know that Shemekia would grow into an incredibly fascinating artist, releasing her debut album "Turn The Heat Up!" when she was only 19. Only two years later Shemekia hit back with another fantastic album, "Wicked", which won her three Blues Music Awards. Shemekia kept churning out the hits as she released several more albums, each one earning massive acclaim from critics and audiences alike. Her most recent effort is the album "33 1/3", which has hit the top ten of the Top Blues Albums chart for two years in a row.
Since she was introduced to singing and the world of music at a young age, Shemekia Copeland didn't take long to reach fame or success in the music scene. She already had a devout following of fans before she even had an album released due to her joining her father on tour, but when her album "Turn The Heat Up!" was released she won praise and acclaim from critics and fans alike. And while this first release was astounding, two years later she followed it up with the album "Wicked", earning her spots on the music charts as well as a handful of awards. It can be hard to say which of these had a bigger impact for her career, but it's needless to say that both of these are incredibly strong additions to the blues genre in general. She has continued on since then to wild success, with each album that she releases even more popular than the last.
Shemekia Copeland Trivia
There's no doubt that Shemekia Copeland has been an amazing influence and icon in the blues music scene, as well as music in general, but did you know that she is actually officially recognized as the "Queen of the Blues"? It's true! While the Queen of the Blues was known as Koko Taylor for many decades, it was after her passing in 2009 that Koko's daughter, Cookie Taylor, presented Shemekia with the honor. This happened at the 2011 Chicago Blues Festival, likely to be the most fitting place for an honor of this magnitude to have taken place. So while many people may have assumed that Shemekia Copeland was considered the Queen of the Blues before, now it is known as an a true fact.
If you're one of Shemekia Copeland's many fans, or maybe you're simply just a fan of blues music in general, you absolutely need to see Shemekia perform live!

By just bringing another music fan along with you to any kind of show is a way to turn an event into an adventure! But no matter what, if you bring someone along with you or not, you won't be alone at any of her shows.
