Soul 365

360° of Soul...and then some


Why soul365 ? – well its kind of like a compilation album which aims to recommend acts and tracks, picked from various different sources – only its a website, which like album sleeve notes used to do, can point out ways to find out more about the music. Whether a tourist or purist traveller, isnt the ultimate destination the same ?..sonic satisfaction !

Defining soul is an age old question – however you hear/view it, there’s a style for all ages/seasons. The artists ‘compiled’ here, of course have not appeared without help from a ‘critical crew’ (Lee P, Sharp EE, KP & Raya take a bow)

Increasingly, especially over the last few years, soul music has splintered into so many scenes its tricky to follow… hopes that pointing out the artists we’ve found most satisfying, will help you explore more of the wide world of soul…and yes, we plan to add albums to the recommendations in time ! – Site name/theme of 365 days – so a one-a-day list of performers who’ve touched our soul.

Dont agree with the inaugural list ? – feedback for the next one ! The ‘blog’ element lets you add any snippets, comments or good websites too, for new or reborn ‘soul/rnb’ fans to enjoy… site conceived by Devon Daley – soul music fan/panel speaker etc..
