Mississippi Bluesman Jarekus Singleton Plays From His New Album Refuse To Lose


Our guest today is Mississippi based bluesman Jarekus Singleton. He recently released his new album, his second on Alligator Records, called Refuse to Lose. Jarekus is a man lucky enough to have multiple talents. Until an ankle injury stopped him, he was a prospect in the NBA draft out of college. While laid up he practiced guitar and later started writing. While he liked hip-hop and more, he loved the blues and began playing. We will get the full story from Michaela Majoun as Jarekus joins us today. We’ll even find out the origin of his colorful name.
