Andy Collins

I'm a South Londoner now living in Sweden. I'm also a part-time DJ/ founder of Urbanlife Radio and co-founder of Scandinavian Soul. Music has always been my soundtrack to life and although I listen to everything, soul is always in my playlist.

Swedish singer Shaqdi continues to keep our eyes and ears mesmerised with her seductive vocal style on her new single/video - Obvious.

The summer's heat won't be the only thing that melts you as you glide along with the gentle, sensual tones of Shaqdi and Zag Erlat (aka Zagor) dreamy, soulful production.
The Band Called Oh's new video and single - Tree Hugger encompasses a smooth R&B vocal and lyrical style with a complimentary beat and an expansive production.

The Norwegian band with an unusual name is helping define the modern sound of soul and R&B in Scandinavia.

This exemplary single, exclusively previewed on scandinaviansoul.com, is accompanied by a creative, abstract video directed by Ingeborg Løvlie, embraced with Nordic surrealness.

NEW VIDEO: Damn! - Fröken

Ahhh... Miss Ballentine.

Admit it; in our youth, we've all had a teacher we liked a little more than we should have. We're reminded of these hormone raging days with Swedish band Damn! new single/video - Fröken (eng. Teacher) which cleverly combines a classic Swedish film of forbidden love.

Iron Island debuts an emotional ballad

Iron Island is Danish singers Dan Hjernø's solo project and his debut single - A Man I Used to Know, is a soulful, emotionally-filled ballad.

Despite its incredibly short run length there enough sentiment in this stripped down track to convey genuine heart and Scandinavian soul.
Norwegian singer Sofia presents her soul/pop vibes in a duo of debut singles - Look Me in The Eye, and Love Will Come Along, released on Waterfall Music.

Sofia (Helga Sofia Aarvik) sails through the increasing 'sweet sounding' Norwegian waters, with both singles steered by her appealing R&B flavoured vocals.

Djeff blossom with debut album

Let me begin by saying this.   

The debut album, In Bloom, by 7-piece Danish band Djeff showcases a band striving for reinvention and recreation and is one of the best albums you'll hear from Scandinavia in 2017 

I write this early so you can press play now rather than read through my words. 

If you're still here, let me explain why?

Out now is Charlotte Dos Santos new single - Good Sign and it's stunning!

The Norwegian singer has quickly become one of the diamond names music websites like ours eagerly search for. 

Now the anticipation for her next release is like queueing at an iPhone giveaway!
