Reverend Keith A. Gordon

Blues singer Shemekia Copeland is set to release her fifth studio album, and her first album for the noted Telarc Records label, on February 24th, 2009. Titled Never Going Back, the album is a solid collection, certain to bring Copeland a slew of critical accolades and award nominations when the next round of Blues Music Awards, Grammy's, and other honors are announced.

Never Going Back takes full advantage of the singer's talents, the album's performances ranging from Chicago-style blues, R&B, and soul to songs that borderline on rock & roll. Throughout it all, Copeland delivers the real goods, her expansive vocals equally capable of both a sexy whisper and a threatening growl, sometimes within the range of the same song. Never Going Back is a fine showcase for Copeland, and solid work of soulful elegance and blues excellence.
