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.

Although we don't know much about the Swedish group Saturday, Monday, we do recognize good sound when we hear it as well as the excellent vocals of Julia Spada. Julia’s currently listed in our 'Stars of Tomorrow,' but it looks like tomorrow is now for this Swedish soul singer.
Dreamon - C'mon Talk (Dreamix) ft. Omar (NOR)
Ok, not quite a mash-up but a mix-up! Norwegian rapper Dreamon has teamed up with soul singer Omar (A Semi-Finalist in the first season of The Voice - Norway) on the track ‘C'mon Talk.’ Even better, they have used the break from Jarle Bernhoft (the Prince of Norwegian soul) - ’C'mon Talk.’ We like this - catchy and fresh!
Danish soul singer Stine Kinck hits us with a new sound in her latest video "Year of The Diamond" which was recorded in one take - shot and directed by Johan Melin.
Whoever said 'image is everything' was almost right. Based on the album cover, Kamilia Amelie sure has style – luckily, so does her debut album, 'Come What May.'

After the recent launch of her new album - Lykken Er... (which has received rave reviews - from us included) comes Barbara Moleko's new video and single - Dum for Dig. The video is beautifully shot, and Barbara it's clear she's a natural in front of the camera. We're soon going to run out of words to describe how good she is!
Danish singer Nanna B is definitely another name to add to the growing number of talented soul voices coming out of Denmark. Here's her brand new video for her track 'Sum O´Sometimes', taken from the forthcoming album 'Vitaphone' due Oct 2012.
Raised on a steady and varied diet of musical influences provided by his mother, Swedish-born NATANAEL, an established singer, cites early influences ranging from; Stevie Wonder and Al Jarreau to Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, and Swedish folk music.
We've been talking about this young Danish singer for a while and waiting excitedly for her debut album… and boy, does she deliver! Her 15-track album ‘Lykken er…’ (Happiness is…) has all the punch, vocal passion and energy we've come to love about this dynamic singer.
