Mix Pick: Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens

Mix Pick: Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens

Get there early for the Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings show at the Keswick Theatre on Wednesday. Naomi Shelton is on Jones' Daptones Records label, but while Jones leans to the Saturday night side of secular-sacred soul music equation, Shelton's fervor is a little more Sunday morning. Here's a little background on the sanctified singer and her bandleader Cliff Driver. Shelton's mighty burner of debut album, What Have You Done, My Brother? comes out May 26, and below is a video of her asking "Am I Asking Too Much?" at Southpaw in Brooklyn in 2006.
