Daryl Hall has long been praised for his roots in R&B, soul and funk, and on the 34th and latest edition of the award-winning web show Live from Daryl’s House, Daryl gets to share his love for that style of music with the critically acclaimed powerhouse diva Sharon Jones of the Dap-Kings. Featuring a seven-song set that includes the Daryl-penned standards “Do What You Want, Be, What You Are” and “It’s Uncanny,” a soaring cover of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Hot Fun” and four great Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings songs, the Webby-winning series’ latest episode debuts Sept. 15 at

The latest Live from Daryl’s House spotlights the powerhouse vocals of Jones, who has made a name for herself with four independently released albums, including the latest, I Learned the Hard Way, recorded at their House of Soul Studios, which debuted at #15 on the Billboard charts when it was released earlier this year on their own Daptone label. The Boston Globe raved that Jones “sings of hard times, infidelity, and other life lessons with total authority.” Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings’ cover of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land” was featured in the opening credits of last year’s Oscar-nominated movie Up in the Air, and included on the soundtrack album.

Episode premieres Wednesday, September 15th at 8pm Eastern.

Daryl Hall started Live From Daryl’s House, the free monthly web show in late 2007, after having the idea of “playing with my friends and putting it up on the Internet,” and the show has since garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, SPIN, Daily Variety, CNN, BBC, Yahoo! Music and influential blogged Bob Lefsetz, who cited Live From Daryl’s House as a perfect example of a veteran artist reinventing himself in the digital age by collaborating with both established colleagues and newer performers.
