TRUTH & SOUL is a record label/production house & writing team started by Leon Michels and Jeff Silverman in 2003.  The two have cultivated a new and unique sound. By keeping a production and recording aesthetic modeled after the warm analogue sound of early soul records, yet continuing to push the boundaries of modern music they have maintained a sound that manages to stray from the pitfalls of genre generalizations.

Newest Release: March 2013




All you have to do is listen to Lady once, and you’ll remember—in case you forgot—why they call it soul music. The honesty, the aching sweetness, the raw power of these singers and their songs will remind you that nothing can move you as much, or touch you as deeply, as two women with amazing voices singing in tight harmony
