Tameca Jones has made quite the name for herself as the “Queen of Austin Soul,” leaving audiences all over the city stunned by her renditions of well-known favorites by Elton John, Tina Turner, Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, and more. Since building up her powerful yet sugary sound over the past decade, Jones has received big applauds from Billboard Magazine for her performance at the 2015 Austin Music Awards, where she paid homage to legends like Steven Van Zandt, Charlie Sexton, Alejandro Escovedo, and Patty Griffin. Jones recently collaborated with one of her long-time favorite singer-songwriters Walker Lukens on a brand new single titled Are You Awake. Take a peak at this new release and check out how this sound was approached in our full-session and interview below!
