Sharon Jones Is Back! New Video, New Album (see Here)


I’m happy to tell you Sharon Jones is back. The soul chanteuse way waylaid by a little cancer. But that’s done, and Sharon and her Dap Kings have a new single and video called “Retreat.” The album is coming in January, she starts playing dates in February. Plus Oscar winning documentary filmmaker Barbara Kopple is filming her. Sounds like 2014 will be a good year after all!
