Robert Cray has been bridging the lines between blues, soul, and R&B for the past four decades. He’s garnered five Grammy wins, is a Blues Hall of Fame inductee and recipient of the Americana Lifetime achievement award, has staged countless tours, and holds over 20 acclaimed albums.
Rooted in the rich ground of American rhythm and blues, soul, and gospel and possessing a deft storyteller’s pen, Marc Cohn weaves vivid, detailed, often drawn-from-life tales that evoke some of our most universal human feelings: love, hope, faith, joy, and heartbreak.
In the seven decades since the Blind Boys of Alabama first began singing together, their music has not only endured, but thrived, helping to define the sound of the American south and transcending barriers of race and genre.
Shemekia Copeland‘s instantly recognizable voice, capable of being sultry, assertive, and roaring, delivers every song with unparalleled honesty and passion. Her wide-open vision of contemporary Americana roots and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with an up-to-the-minute musical and lyrical approach.
