‘Uncivil War’ finds Shemekia blazing an exhilarating roots music trail, with many of the songs reflecting the spirit of our turbulent times. Her passionpacked singing breathes fire into solemn, gospel-drenched anthems, lowdown blues, crunching rockers and frisky New Orleans R&B.
On captivating original songs and invigorating new takes on tracks by the Rolling Stones, Junior Parker and her father, famed bluesman Johnny Clyde Copeland, she commands listeners’ attention while exploring life’s daily struggles and triumphs, both political and personal.
