Grammy nominated for the best blues album of 2012, this daughter of renowned Texas blues guitarist Johnny Copeland began making a splash of her own as a teenager.
According to The Alternative Root, Shemekia Copeland is now the defacto Queen of the Blues: "Like Koko Taylor, Bessie Smith, Alberta Hunter, Helen Humes and a host of women who have worn that crown, someone will have to unseat Shemekia. Count on her being at the top for some time to come. Her voice is the best pure blues voice of the last 30 years."
