we love sharon-cover-1000x1000pix
Here’s a tribute to the one and only Ms. Sharon Jones, the first lady of Daptone Records.

I’m looking forward to the upcoming release of their 5th album, Give The People What They Want, and seeing them at their best: live on stage this Winter/Spring to support the new release.

We Love Sharon includes a variety of styles from Sharon and the crew ranging from hard and uptempo Bboy funk,to the more bluesy and soulful sound. I also included some clips of live performances, and interviews with Sharon and Gabe Roth (head man in charge at Daptone).
