    (October 5, 2021) Well, it's that time of year again!  We're beginning to plan our 2021 SoulTracks Readers' Choice Awards, the world's leading award dedicated to independent soul music. The awards will be coming in December, but we will be getting ready and voting long before then. 

    And we need your help!  From now until October 15, we will be accepting nominations for this year's Readers' Choice Awards.  The Awards will be designed to honor the best of independent soul music artists and releases of the past year. 

    To be nominated, an artist must have released music (or had their music reach its commercial peak) between October 1, 2020 and September 30, 2021. And all nominees must have released their music independently (i.e., not on one of the three "major" labels or their subsidiaries).
