Soul Of A Woman is the final studio album by American funk and soul band Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, released in November 2017 via Daptone Records.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings started out as the Soul Providers in the mid-1990s by Philip Lehman and Gabriel Roth (aka Bosco Mann), and began recording an album consisting of James Brown inspired instrumentals and vocal collaborations with Deep Funk recording artist Lee Fields. During these sessions Roth and Lehman discovered vocalist Sharon Jones while recording backing vocals for a Lee Fields, and decided to record "Switchblade" with her. 

Following a split between Lehman and Roth, the Soul Providers finished, with many of the former members becoming Sharon Jones' backing band The Dap-Kings ("Dap" coming from Daptone records, Roth's record company). After securing a residency at The Boite in Spain, the band recorded their first LP, Dap Dippin' with Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. A few hundred copies were pressed, so that sales during the residency would provide financial backing on what would have otherwise been a financially disastrous trip. With promotional copies reaching notable funk DJs and reviewers, the album gained a significant reputation and was officially released as the first LP and CD on Daptone Records in 2002 to universal acclaim amongst enthusiasts.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings' final studio album, Soul of a Woman is a lush, orchestral masterpiece. A true testament to the life and career of Daptone's fearless leader and one of the world's greatest performers.

Though we'll never again see her electric form shimmy across the stage, Sharon Jones continues to give us her soul and her music. She died nearly a year ago, but only now can we hear her final creation.

Soul of a Woman captures a singer and a band at the peak of their power. Cutting one last time to eight-track tape at Daptone's House of Soul studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn, the band endeavoured to create a record that stretches the limits of their soulful sound in all directions, giving us both their rawest and most sophisticated recordings to date.

A final statement by one of the most influential rhythm and blues voices of the 21st century.

Check out the tracks:  Matter of Time”; “Sail On”; and “Call on God”.
