Neo Soul Gospel Singer?

Neo soul gospel singers are a niche within a niche. And there are some amazing voices you’ll want to discover who offer a smooth style coupled with a good news message. In an ongoing quest to define my own style, I struggled with labels such as contemporary gospel, R&B gospel, neo soul, CCM. The truth of the matter is I am a little bit of all of these things. My project, “Kingdom Journey,” certainly attests to this diversity. But at the end of the day, neo soul is a true urban edge that pushes boundaries on rhythmic and musical elements that are more laid back than prominent. In a nutshell, neo soul gospel offers a “vibe” that differs from a Sunday morning worship feel. But don’t get will be blessed by the lyrics. 

Now, if you like the neo soul art form (a la Jill Scott or Anthony Hamilton), you’ll be happy to learn about—or be reminded of—the following outstanding artists in the gospel space who offer a neo soul vibe. The list is not in any particular order. But check out these artists and support creative, neo soul gospel music!
