“You hope that the music and the feeling and the song can inspire people to be better or do better things, or to feel better if they’re in a tough spot. That’s what Sharon was so unbelievable about, just singing from the heart and just reaching people.” Gabriel Roth (Dap-Kings bassist/Daptone co-founder)
The superb, shining, stunning soul of this woman was dazzling right up until the end and Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings’ final studio album is testament to that!
The band’s final record, Soul of a Woman, was released on 17th November, virtually a year to the day after Sharon Jones passed away in November 2016. The album is a lush, orchestral vintage soul masterpiece, brimming with energy as it encapsulates the vibrant life and career of this audacious artist. With her unique talent for reviving the R&B sounds of the late 60’s and 70’s, Sharon Jones’ music will remain timeless and her legacy will live on forever through her big, bright and beautiful sound.
Girl! (You Got To Forgive Him) is elegantly punctuated by dramatic orchestral strings, harmonised by lush backing vocals and led by the driving, passionate roar of Sharon Jones soulful voice..It’s a beauty! Check it out above and listen/purchase the whole album from here.
