Sweethearts are the present and future of soul music. Playing nu-soul, a fusion of styles based around classic soul, Sweethearts is the most exciting band of young female musicians in the world.
"These girls are the future of soul music. They really are exceptionally good.” - Vince Peach, Soul Time PBS 106.7
