Product Notes

Celebrated blues, R&B and Americana vocal powerhouse delivers the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2018's America's Child, winner of the Blues Music Award for Album Of The Year. The new album is again produced by Will Kimbrough and features guest performances and/or songwriting by Kimbrough, Jason Isbell, Christone "Kingfish" Ingram, Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush, Orphan Brigade, Steve Cropper, Duane Eddy and Shawn Mullins. Uncivil War finds Shemekia blazing an exhilarating roots music trail, with many of the songs reflecting the spirit of our turbulent times.

Aggressive press, radio and social media support for an artist with past coverage on Late Night With Conan O'Brien, CNN, CBS-TV's Saturday Early Show, Tavis Smiley Show, NPR'S Weekend Edition, World Café, Mountain Stage and E-Town. In addition, her praises have been sung by The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPRMusic. Com, AllMusic. Com, PopMatters. Com, NoDepression. Com, Paste. Com and many more.

Radio promotion at Americana, AAA and blues specialty radio. The title track, released as a digital single earlier this year, has already received airplay at all three. America's Child charted Top Ten on Americana single and album charts, and also charted at AAA. Blues specialty radio kept the album on Living Blues' radio chart for six straight months.

Shemekia has made hundreds of appearances worldwide at festivals, clubs and arts centers for the last 20 years. Tour dates throughout the U. S. in support will begin as soon as they are feasible.

With Uncivil War, Shemekia's passion-packed 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 tracls 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.
