When we first embarked on creating this compilation, we set out to merely highlight a few female artists that we’ve come across in the last year or so, who’s sound has struck a chord in our soulful hearts. As time progressed, the project took shape as more music flooded our ears and it then became more of a challenge to select the right tracks, for as a famous author once stated;
“The human voice is the organ of the soul” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
That said, after much listening and selecting, we bring you a collection of tracks from a handful of ladies who have recently brought a uniqueness of soul to their chosen craft.
Some allow the power in their lilting voices to enhance the lyrics, giving them a striking depth, others eschew flamboyant vocal range in lieu of tighter production and universal feel, while a few opt for bringing both elements together to create a superior overall product. In the end, be it over a heavy produced electronic soundbed, a more traditional Soul/R&B template or with nothing more than a guitar and a microphone, each lady brings their “A Game” and has left us and many other wanting more.
