While listening to WBGO's Blues Hour one Friday afternoon, I heard a song from Jarekus Singleton that I thought was great, so I decided to find out more. After self-releasing album in 2011, The Jarekus Singleton Blues Band was signed to a contract with Alligator Records and released the album Refuse to Lose in 2014. A mix of blues, hip hop, and funk, the album launched Singleton as someone to watch on the blues scene. Almost all the songs on the album are great, but my favorites are "Hell", "Sorry", and "High Minded".
"High Minded" was the song I heard on WBGO, so that is going to be our song of the week.
