We remember, scrutinize, and revitalize the sounds of 20th century “soul” music. We look at the harmonies, melodies, and history that shaped the icons of soul, and explore lesser-known artists who still influenced the music we’ve come to love.
Posts include musical analysis, historical contexts, and fun facts of everyone from Sam Cooke and Etta James to Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder. We’ll also look at contemporary artists like Musiq Soulchild and Raphael Saadiq.
Stay, smile, read, and listen.
