With Soul music more vibrant than ever before, The Blues Project presents the renaissance of R&B / Soul by showcasing the genre’s freshest talent. Today, the genre spans wide from traditional Soul music, to contemporary R&B, bass-heavy blues, alternative R&B right through to trap soul. Soul music is expanding to new realms, while paying homage to its traditional sound.
We’ve selected our ‘Freshmen’ who represent this colourful spectrum – 8 up-and-coming singers with unique sounds, immense creativity and all-round great artistry. We’ve given these rising stars dedicated sections on the site and a chance for you to see behind the music and artist in a way never done before.
The Blues Project is the voice of emerging soul talent, giving that talent a platform to showcase its distinct brand of cool. Watch out for the launch of our Blues Freshmen section!
