    33 ⅓ -- Another really solid album from Shemekia featuring songs from an eclectic group of sources including some particularly strong ones from manager John Hahn. At age 33, she seems to have hit upon that perfect balance of soul and rocking, using her incredible vocal strength without trying to overpower the songs.

    - Don Wilcock, American Blues Scene

    Sturdy blues from the genre's young queen opens up slowly, like the slowly raising consciousness of the abused and finally self-preserving narrator; its harrowing story reaches a climax in a fiercely expressive guitar solo from the great Buddy Guy.

    4:40

    Shemekia Copeland -родилась 10 апреля 1979 года в Нью-Йоркском Гарлеме. Дочь выдающегося техасского гитариста Джонни Коплэнда.
    Shemekia Copeland - это потрясающий сплав блюза, фанка, соул и госпел в одном лице. Ей удалось практически всё - медленные, интимные, почти пришептываемые песни и мощные, неистовые взрывные блюзы, от которых бегут мурашки по коже и наворачиваются слёзы.
    Shemekia Copeland: Никто не будет слушать исполнителя, играющего или поющего только ради того, чтобы заработать немного денег. Если я пою, то точно знаю, что я ДОЛЖНА это делать
    Президент лэйбла Alligator Records Брюс Иглауэр сказал: Я считаю, что именно она станет следующей великой блюзовой певицей. У нее есть голос, образ,корни и все это подпитывается неистощимым потоком энергии, которую она просто излучает. Мир блюза ожидал прихода подобной артистки много лет.
