Melissa Etheridge has done some pretty gutsy things in her stellar career. She’s shown no fear in forthrightly standing up for her truths, both in her songs and her life. But as an artist she’s never quite laid it on the line like she does on MEmphis Rock and Soul, scheduled for release on October 7, 2016 via Stax Records, a division of Concord Music Group. On MEmphis Rock and Soul, Etheridge brings her powerful voice and passionate vision to some of the era-defining treasures of modern music — the Staple Singers’ “Respect Yourself,” Otis Redding’s “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now)” and “I’ve Got Dreams to Remember,” Sam & Dave’s “Hold On, I’m Coming,” Albert King’s “Born Under a Bad Sign,” Johnnie Taylor’s “Who’s Making Love” — as well as some real discoveries she found in her explorations deep into the Stax catalog. Etheridge could not be happier with the results: an album that completely captures the spirit she felt as a kid hearing these songs. And now she’s thrilled to share her MEmphis Rock and Soul.
