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

Donnie Ray’s latest album My Southern Soul is pretty good. My fave cut is “Doghouse.”

Also listened to the latest Jeter Jones but was not wowed.

Alas, that “Doghouse “ is just an extended mix of Ray’s 2016 song

Oh, haven't listened to Brinston in awhile. I like him.

Listening to NeyCole. She's alright but I like Ms. Jody and Karen Wolfe more.

I wonder if Brinston's "Sidepiece Motel" from 2017 is his most recent?

Oh, Brinston put out "Kitty Whipped" this year -2018

Another year where none of these albums are gonna make the Wire, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, etc. best of the year lists...Since the southern US labels putting out the releases of these over age 50 performers don't do crossover marketing, only a handful of media folks reach out and cover them. These artists in this thread are as much Americana or RnB as those who do get listed in those categories, but alas they're ignored. Yea, I know metal and experimental and some other niche genres also may not get much attention, but it doesn't seem as bad as for the Southern soul folks

Yeah kitty whipped is really great

Nothing from here showing up in Americana lists or even a Southern America website's top list. I don't think Big Daddy Nice does a list till January

I like the Karen Wolf song . He's got OB Buchana on it too, plus the great Big G from Richmond, VA

Tucka's voice reminds me a bit of R. Kelly

x-post--Karen Wolfe. An 'e' on the end. Oh and by "he's got", I meant the Big Daddy Nice list...

O.B. Buchana has a nice track on that list

Big Daddy Nice essay on 2018

I put some stuff from here on my ilx ilm ballot. I have caught up on some 2018 Southern Soul but more to go. Ms. Jody can do no wrong with me ( even when her albums have a few misses).

Johnny Rawls 2018 album I’m Still Around is a solid work of bluesy southern soul

That Nashville gig is tonight Saturday February 23. Nashville resident and NPR critic Ann Powers should go

I doubt Ann attended.

I have praised Vickie Baker’s “Honey Hole” here before, and must do so again. So catchy
