CHECK SCHEDULE FOR CORRECT TIME
Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kingsare pleased to announce US tour dates this fall in support ofI Learned the Hard Way, their fourth full-length onDaptone Records. The album debuted earlier this year at #15 on the Billboard 200 and is a few weeks away from passing the 100,000 sales mark.
I Learned the Hard Waymarks 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 Wayis the Daptone Sound at its finest.
