British soul has been around for a minute or two but some of the reactions to talent imported over the past couple of years would make you think it was just invented. This list of British female singers includes some of the ones who are hot right now and classic acts who laid the groundwork for the music’s growing popularity. The ones who stuffed their music so full of impressive vocals and classic soul style that they helped establish the contemporary British soul tradition and are also keeping it going. Nobody’s about to argue that Adele’s music has a very soulful quality to it, but for my quid she’s more pop than soul. Ain’t saying that’s a bad thing because she’s righteous any way you slice it. Anyway, these are the ones that do it for me.
