One is the most important hub of the urban alternative music community in cyberspace. The other is the biggest soul music website on the planet. Both of them featured Nadir’s “Go It Alone” music video this week.
SoulTracks.com is the leading online resource dedicated to classic and modern soul music. Their “First Listen” feature presents the hottest new soul music to the international soul community. Here’s how they laid it out:
SoulTrackers who’ve been with us awhile know that we’re fans of Detroit funk, rock, soul and blues man, Nadir. He’s always bringing us something real, and since it’s been a few years since we last heard new music from him, we were glad to hear he was working on a new album.
