What TIME Is IT???
The time is coming again for the 2016 SOULTRACKS READERS' CHOICE AWARDS!!!
The biggest awards in the world dedicated to INDEPENDENT SOUL MUSIC
We've gathered all the suggestions from readers and our industry friends and have chosen a fantastic group of finalists -- superb artists who represent all that is great about Soul Music in 2016.
To be nominated, an artist must have released music (or had the music reach its commercial peak) between October 1, 2015 and September 30, 2016. And all nominees must have released their music independently (i.e., not on one of the three major labels).
