Meshing the sweat of Memphis with the pleading, deep-fried sizzle of Muscle Shoals in its prime, the songs on The Soul Truth shift from bluesy, testifying ballads ("Strong Enough") to horn-infused steamy funkers ("Better Not Touch") to late-night gospel ballads (Dobie Gray swings in to duet on "Used") with the effortless, down-home intensity of Otis Redding. You won't find her on MTV or in the top 40, but for those who reject the plastic, Pro Tools-sculpted pop and slick cookie-cutter music that dominates the airwaves, Shemekia Copeland speaks the "soul truth." --Hal Horowitz
Shemekia Copeland simply has a beautiful, strong, and soulful voice.
There are no screeching guitar solos, just good time music played by an adept band with Memphis grooves, stirring lyrics, and those explosive vocals.
Her previous two records were good, but the production was not up to snuff and the material was simplistic and deliberate.
