Sharon Jones + The Dap Kings Bring Soul Excitement to SXSW

SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS BRING SOUL TO SXSW

Full Band Will Play Live At Four Venues

New Album I Learned The Hard Way Out on April 6, 2010

We are pleased to announce four Austin, Texas shows for Daptone Recording artist Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.

On April 6th, 2010 the band will release I Learned the Hard Way, their fourth full-length on Brooklyn s independent Daptone Records. The record marks a bold step forward for a band who almost single handedly stewarded today s return of soul music to its more traditional sound.

From the lush Philly-Soul fanfare that ushers in The Game Gets Old at the top of the record, to the stripped down Sam Cooke-style Mama Don t Like My Man at the tail, the Dap-Kings dance seamlessly through both the most crafted and simple arrangements with subtlety and discipline. I Learned the Hard Way is the Daptone Sound at its finest. We hope you will enjoy them live at one of those amazing shows.
