We are the Southern Soul Blues Report, your one-stop guide to everything southern soul and your "Bridge to the Blues Past & Present." What is southern soul music? It is a by-product of the blues; it's like a variation on a theme. When thinking of the blues, you can't help but visualize the traditional music from artists such as Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and so many others. Southern soul evolved from that music; it has a distinct sound and a unique feel that you easily recognize when you hear it. Legends such as Bobbie "Blue" Bland, B.B. King, Z.Z. Hill, Johnnie Taylor, Tyrone Davis, and tons of other artists have given us the foundation for the southern soul sound that we hear today. It is often called grown folks music and should be listened to by the grown and sexy. It is music that brings back old memories, creates new ones, makes you want to dance, makes you want to cry, makes you want to sing, lifts you up, gives you something you can relate to, and gives you something to think about. There are songsof losing (and finding) a good woman - or good man, music about days gone by, songs about dancing, and yes, beautiful songs of love.
