  • Born in Virginia and established in Chicago, singer Shirley Johnson is in the classic tradition--based in gospel, and inspired by the blues and secular R&B of Etta James, Little Milton, and Bobby "Blue" Bland.

She's got the indomitable grit of Chicago-style blues but she channels it into scorching R&B (as exemplified by Little Milton and Etta James) and old-school, pre-disco era soul (Mavis Staples, Ann Pebbles).
