Soul Music Week

DETROIT, Mich., Feb. 14, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- SoulTracks and soul music fans around the world are taking action to support soul music, one of the most revered forms of music in the world. From Motown to Memphis, from James Brown to Jill Scott, "soul music" is the sound of our lifetime. And while today broadcast radio focuses more on electronic pop and rap, "soul" continues to thrive in large halls, small clubs, family parties and on popular internet destinations like SoulTracks (, America's most popular soul music online magazine.

"We ran a string of articles highlighting the great soul music being made by both young and old artists around the world and the challenge those artists have in getting the attention of broadcast radio and mass media," says SoulTracks Publisher Chris Rizik. "We were then inundated with comments from readers - readers who are passionate about soul music and who want to make a difference in supporting the music and the artists making it."

The result is Soul Music Week 2013. Soul Music Week, which goes from February 15-24, 2013, is designed, according to Rizik, as "a week of discovery, connecting music fans with the great artists who continue to drive soul music forward."

The concept for Soul Music Week is simple. Each music fan is being asked to do three things:
1. Buy a new Soul Music CD, either online or at a physical retailer;
2. Place a comment at SoulTracks' Soul Music Week page, telling what you bought and how you like it; and
3. Spread the word to friends on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.
