Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings - Words and Music - 2010


When Sharon Jones names her new album I Learned The Hard Way, she isn't kidding. It took her forty years to make it as a singer — after stints as a corrections officer and an armored car guard. However, she's now the first lady of the neo-soul funk revival, and she made the trip from House of Soul Studios in Brooklyn to FUV with all her Dap Kings to share some new live tunes, and to tell us what she thinks about R. Kelly.
