Alabama Shakes - Don't Wanna Fight (Official Video - Live from Capitol Studio A)

Alabama Shakes are a soul/blues band incorporating a real soulful sound. Comparisions have been made between the vocalist Brittney Howard and Janis Joplin but her voice is softer but still conveys the same heartfelt emotion. She has a look of Big Mama Thornton and that has to be the ultimate accolade.

Alabama Shakes

Many of the tracks are written by Brittney and must be on everyone’s ‘listen to next’ list.

Might Mo Rodgers is little short of a genius. This song (Bring Back) Sweet Soul Music is a fabulous tribute to soul music and brings a tear to the eye of us old timers who were there in the clubs of Manchester when we were first blown away by the sound coming from over the Altlantic Ocean.

He often appears on the European blues circuit and his achievements are many. Read all about him below.
