Featured Release This Week From Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings + Studio One Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Nov 27, 2017

Sharon Jones paid her dues for years before she began to achieve success as a soul singer at the age of 40.  That success was mainly in the company of The Dap-Kings, the Brooklyn-based band she fronted for several years.  Their first full-length release together came out in 2002.  Last year's soundtrack of the film documentary Miss Sharon Jones! was their most recent album- until now.  Jones died in November of 2016, and the final recordings of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings are contained in the new album Soul of A Woman.
