And we need your help!  From now until October 16, 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. 

 (October 9, 2017) Well, it's getting to be that time of year again!  We're beginning to plan our 2017 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 planning and voting long before then. 

And we need your help!  From now until October 16, 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, 2016 and September 30, 2017. And all nominees must have released their music independently (i.e., not on one of the three "major" labels). 

Here are the categories:

Album of the Year
Song of the Year
Female Artist of the Year
Male Artist of the Year
Duo or Group of the Year
New Artist of the Year
Lifetime Achievement Award

From the nominated artists, albums and song, the SoulTracks staff will pick 12 finalists in each category. We'll come back to SoulTrackers later this month to vote on the winners.  The winners will be announced in December.

So, let us know what music you want nominated for the Awards (no need to nominate the same music more than once). You can make your nominations in the Facebook comment section below! And share with your friends using the symbol #SoulTracks2017
