by vivrant thang on uk soul and my favorite things

As we know, not all good soul music comes from artists here in the States. 

The success of artists like Corrine Bailey Rae,  Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse have certainly put the UK on the map in recent years. Duffy and Adele are getting there as well. However, there are so many other artists across the water who have been making music for years and haven’t gotten the same recognition.

Omar, Incognito, Brand New Heavies are just a few of the British artists that have been in constant rotation on my ‘pod for years now. If not on yours as well, shame on you! 🙂 While grooving with Omar recently and reminiscing on the last time I saw him in concert,  I started on a little journey to discover just what other flava the UK could put in my ear.

As with all of my “favorite things” list, this one is not comprehensive by any means. Please hip me to any others I should be checking out in the comments. Also be sure to visit the UK Soul site which definitely helped me discover a lot of the artists featured here.

I had the pleasure of seeing Hil in concert last summer and she is amazing live – even better than the album if that’s possible.
