What the press are saying about SOUL UK

July 27, 2011

Since it’s release last month, Beverley Knight’s Soul UK has been receiving fantastic press reviews across the board!

Here’s our essential selection:


UK’s undisputed queen of classic soul…in peerless form flying the flag for her country and her craft… Stunning interpretations…result in an album that is both timeless and contemporary and blessed with a voice to die for **** The Sun

Knight is in her element on this lovingly-curated album of homegrown soul standards **** Daily Mail

…sees her pay tribute to the British soul that has inspired her. It’s perfectly suited to the singer’s gospel infused tones and shows why Beverley’s attributed first lady status over here. MOJO

…. A laudable idea and Knight makes an excellent curator… she saves her best for Princess’s yearning Say I’m Your Number One and a storming run-through of Roachford’s Cuddly Toy. Sunday Times Culture

Knight’s taste for a cover version is impeccable…. A brilliant soul singer. David Quantick, BBC online

A Musical Masterclass **** Daily Mirror

(Soul UK) shows how British soul is capable of having a character independent of its American counterpart. (Fairplay) encapsulates the spirit of an album that sounds like a labour of love. The Times

(Beverley) claims Roachford’s Cuddly Toy for her own… (One More Try is a) soaring, fiercely impassioned, gospel-tinged version of George Michael’s classic, which sounds as if it’s been replanted in the America’s Deep South. Q Magazine

A stunning vocal performance… soul-stirring. Evening Standard

One of our greatest vocalists, not only in soul but in any genre. The Arts Desk

Original, thoughtful, soulful and packs quite a punch **** Express

 A talented performer, Knight has class of her own. Mail On Sunday Review

Knight’s knowledge and passion elevates Soul UK. Metro

Brilliant. Daily Star Sunday

Superbly funkadelic **** Pride
