“Soul Music is about longevity and reaching and touching people on a human level – and that’s never going to get lost” Jill Scott
While pop music by its purest definition (that being popular music) is inherently linked to a time and a place, soul music is timeless. Think about it; it’s the reason these songs still pop up in your favourite movies, it’s the reason radio stations still play these songs day and night it’s the reason why, when you’re at a wedding, these songs bring kids and grandparents on to the dancefloor like no other.
These are songs that speak about universal truths filtered personal prisms and musical tools. Love, death, joy, pain, family, sadness, friendship, heartbreak, jealousy, these songs are stories told through music. Soul music translates the artist’s experience into a feeling that is universal.
