“The power of soul can never be extinguished.” There’s still a misconception that the only authentic Soul music came from Detroit, Memphis, and Muscle Shoals. But since that heyday in the 1960’s, it’s been proven repeatedly that Soul music can be made anywhere, and at any time, so long as the artist is able to lay themselves bare and tell their story…. Alas, Queen M was born. Neo soul mixed with vintage Motown and Reggae influences.
