Sharon Jones has proven herself quite a force to be reckoned with. While leading her band, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, on an extensive talk show circuit as well as both North American and European tours following the January, 2014 release of Give the People What They Want, Jones was also fighting a battle with cancer.
Now, cancer free and fresh off the band’s first ever Grammy nomination, for R&B Album of the Year, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings are moving full speed ahead, with the release of a brand new track, “Little Boys With Shiny Toys.” In the new song, Jones is as fierce and full of life as ever, her soulful, powerful voice shining through.
