Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings

Alexandria Symonds
I Learned the Hard Way (Daptone Records) 

When Sharon Jones tells you she learned the hard way, you'd better believe it: America's best contemporary soul singer was once a prison guard at Rikers. She's in top form here: raw, expressive and unafraid to share the spotlight with her tremendously accomplished backing band. We can't wait to see these songs live.
