Soul Communicators - Gail Mitchell

gail mitchellLet's just say Gail Mitchell has a way with words.  And that "way" has advanced Soul Music and many of its most important artists over the last 20+ years.  Gail's first job after college graduation was in radio, but it was her move to writer at music industry magazine Radio and Records in 1983 that began the most important stage of her career.  She led the Urban music department at R&R and eventually advanced to executive editor of that publication.  Then in 1999 she was named music editor of Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop department and coordinator of that magazine's annual R&B/Hip-Hop Conference and Awards Show. Gail also became a member of the Board of Governors for the L.A.

Gail also became a member of the Board of Governors for the L.A. chapter of the Recording Academy and a board member of the African-American alumni association at Loyola Marymount.  In all of Gail's positions, she has played a special role in bringing attention to talented young performers, most recently helping to advance the careers of such artists as Jill Scott and Lalah Hathaway.  Her dedication to her trade and to Soul Music has made her a role model for aspiring young female writers and one of the most important advocates for the next generation of Soul artists.
