With jazz, rhythm and soul-inspired elements, we recreate and curate music to nurture the soul. Soldial encourages the idea to shine light on the moments in time that build you; to allow space for reflection, love, and healing. In every musical experience that we create, we like to connect with our audience on a more emotional level to remind everyone and ourselves that being human is not always so bad. With a combination of tasteful covers and original songs, our sound falls under the genres, R&B and neo-soul, with a splash of jazz.
