Quotes & Highlights

Listen to samples of Copeland’s music on her website.
“She belongs to the school of blues belters whose roars could move rocks up hills.” —TimeOut New York
“Her powerhouse voice and sassy attitude had people calling her the new Queen of the Blues from the beginning.” —Washington Post
See Copeland’s 2009 performance on Late Night with David Letterman.


At a young age, Shemekia Copeland is already a force to be reckoned with in the blues. While only in her early 30’s, she’s opened for the Rolling Stones, headlined at the Chicago Blues Festival and numerous festivals around the world, scored critics choice awards on both sides of the Atlantic (The New York Times and The Times of London), shared the stage with such luminaries as Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Mick Jagger, and Eric Clapton, and has even performed at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama. Heir to the rich tradition of soul-drenched divas like Ruth Brown, Etta James and Koko Taylor, the singer was presented with Taylor’s crown by her daughter, Cookie, on June 12, 2011 at the Chicago Blues Festival and given the honor of the new “Queen of the Blues” by official proclamation of the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois.
