If her debut was an announcement of the promise to come, then We Got It, cements that promise.
Snoh Aalegra keep’s the intoxicating goodness coming in the shape of two single releases from the second of her proposed trilogy of Mini Albums, following part one of her critically acclaimed ‘Don’t Explain’ Mini Album released in the middle of 2016.
Awash with emotion, Feels, released towards the tail end of 2016, is a poignant mid-tempo melodic slice of Motown’ish Soul. The track treads the lyrically familiar path of realised longing, yet Snoh elevates this theme into something wondrous.
Almost two years after the mesmerising and acclaimed performance alongside her then quartet, Ever Say Ever, as part of scandinaviansoul.com's Studio Sessions, Liselotte Östblom steps forward with a track of soulful elegance in the shape of her second single - I Met You.
Launching the new year in new style is the Prince of Scandinavian Soul, Bernhoft, whose musical style has developed and should we say, matured, over the past few months. Always regarded as a highly skilful and entertaining performer, the grammy nominated singers' new single - Visceral is an electronic /organic composition combining elements of soul, R&B and pop.
After reviewing music from Finland over the years, I can conclude that Finnish soul artists always give 100%. There is no midpoint to aspire to. They’re passionate about music, so it’s all or nothing.
Finnish soul began with Quintessence, became established with Tuomo, and grew with Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators, Dolla Lova, Humus and The Napkins, to name but a few. All have all set the standard, and it’s a high one.
With a beautifully designed vinyl album, a CD and a live DVD (yes, a live DVD) to accompany his latest release, Nothing Can Stop My Spirit, it’s clear that Mikko Pettinen is another passionate Finnish music creator, too.
One of Sweden’s most outstanding and versatile vocalists, Kristin Amparo, demonstrates her formidable talent on a fantastic new self-titled, eight-track album from Combo De La Musica.
Blending Latin vibes, ’60s harmonies and retro vibes, Combo De La Musica deliver a warm embrace of all the wonderful key elements that make music so very enjoyable.
