I wonder if Reddit or music forum Dissensus have any southern soul fan sites? There’s Daddy B Nice and other blogs plus Facebook I guess

Was just in Houston, Texas. Texas was home to amazing late soulman Mel Waiters. I heard Willie Clayton and other soul on Texas Southern University radio KTSU. Heard an interview with Houston Blues Society folks on the Pacifica public station there too.
Saw some zydeco

Not southern soul, but Leon Bridge and the Suffers and others identified with retro soul want to break out of the parameters they were in

Had a fun time at Lamont’s seeing LJ Echols, J Red, Karen Wolf, Shaye Denise, Hardway Connection and more. This grown folks music continues to be ignored by almost everyone except for some over 40 fanatics ( mainly African-Americans).

LJ Echols has a raspy soul voice with range. He also lost my attention doing that Marvin Sease candylicker bit with a woman from the crowd.

But I liked most of Echols set

Some southern soul songs I like:
Wendell Brown, Vick Allen, LJ Echols-"High heels & Jeans (remix)
(the late) Mel Waiters-"Let's Dance"
Vickie Baker -"Honey Hole"

The new Hardway Connection album is out. Just on cd at this point. No digital.

Jeff Floyd ‘s 2001 “I found love on a lonely highway “ is a classic. If a Daptone label act covered it, NPR would be all over it.

When I was in Houston a little while back, I ran into writer Joe Nick Patoski at a zydeco and Cajun show at a park. He told me he was going to southern soul bar the Silver Slipper. He didn't mention they had live music, just the jukebox. I didn't go. I should have.

That "Honey Hole" song (mentioned above) is so nicely delivered. More songs I like -- J Red's (If your man won't love you) I will",
I forget who sings the following great ones--- "Draggin that Wagon," "Your Man is Cheatin' on Us," and "Roll it , Roll it"

The lyrical themes may be formulaic but there's some great tunes still being created in this genre.

I missed the Lamont's club anniversary event that included Big G from Richmond, VA. He's a skilled instrumentalist and singer with southern and old-school style r'n'b songs

does anyone know the story of these 'Jody' songs Johnny Taylor and Bobbie Newsome did on Stax and assorted in the early 70s?

Much of the new Sir Charles Jones Masterpiece album sounds more quiet storm and 90s retro ballads than southern soul. But the song "Step it Out" is a great line dance, uptempo southern soul number

I'm liking the bluesy-soul of Crystal Thomas "Drank of My Love" album
