NPR Music has said that Mavis Staples’ voice “possesses a sultry, burnt-sugar glow,” and that “she turns a simple pop song into a lament that could move a listener to tears.” The soul legend won a host of new fans with her 2010 GRAMMY®-winning Jeff Tweedy collaboration You Are Not Alone, and she remains "one of the world's mightiest gospel pop singers" (Time). Staples shares the bill with the iconoclast Cody ChesnuTT, who combined funk, soul, hip hop, rock and blues on his 2002 double album The Headphone Masterpiece,went quiet,and then returned a decade later, to much acclaim, with last year’s Landing on a Hundred.
