The Event


Bristol Soul is an intense 3 day event for Soul artists, established and aspiring, together with industry partners and supporters.

Soul is not dead, the music is merely a part of a cultural identity, the music is organic and is evolving independently and underground and will once again soon feature as a force in world music markets. The time is now and this conference will help elevate anybody involved in the industry to their next level, to achieve personal goals and more importantly build the base from which we all work.
If you achieve, we achieve. Start building the movement together.......

The emphasis:

The focus will be to take you to the next level regardless of whether you are a new and inexperienced artist or an established name.

  • Education
  • Business
  • Networking
  • Collaboration
  • Performance



Education

Soul artists have a deep cultural and community identity. They give back through education. Skills will be passed on and nurtured through development.





Business

The music industry now is not the same as it once was, the world has changed, the marketplace has changed, yet the industry still operates through the old models. We will explore and educate how to operate new exciting business models in the current environment.



Networking

Networking is a key ingredient within the new business model. Meet fellow artists and essential industry professions to expand your connections, your 'brand' and enhance your career development.



Collaboration

It is not only about yourselves, if the movement expands, marketplaces expand and all can benefit. It is essential to communicate and collaborate at all levels, artistically and in business.



Performance

Of course, artists want to perform and their will be plenty of opportunity from workshops, acoustic sets, album launches and full performance as well as mentoring and collaborative sessions


The Four Key Groups


Youth

Aspiring new talent from Bristol and the surrounding area, broadly under aged 20 with no released product


New Artists

Artists who have recorded and probably released some product, therefore possessing some performance skills


Established Artists

Artists who have several years experience in recording or performance or both


Known 'Names'

Established and known artists both nationally an internationally


Attendees

We have a huge pool of potential artists and contributors both in the UK and the US (and Worldwide) from being the founder of the New York Indie Soul Mixer, a pre-eminent event in the indie soul calendar, and being a major participator in the largest Soul Music Event in the World, The International Soul Music Summit in Atlanta, Georgia.
There will be particular emphasis on education and community and such groups will be encouraged to participate.
One of the major factors that bind together New Soul Artists is the belief that we are at the dawn of a new age where Soul Music and Culture will regain its place in the world as the dominant force in Black Music. Together with the sense that working together but independently the movement will again acquire the force and momentum to dominate world music in the years ahead. New technologies and non traditional business methods will be key to making progress.
Attendees will be local, national and international.
