Eleven-time Grammy Nominated and 2x Platinum Selling Artist, Musiq Soulchild To Headline 22-City NuSoul Revival Tour Kicking Off February 3rd 2017 in Raleigh, NC.

With Other Shows in Chicago, Philadelphia, NYC, Dallas, Atlanta, Houston, New Orleans, and more (Tickets On Sale Friday, November 4th).

In celebration of drawing over 10,000 soul and R&B music lovers, from all over the U.S, to the largest annual Soul Music Festival in the SE region, the producers of the ATL Soul Life Music Festival are expanding on that successful concept. The 22-city NuSoul Revival Tour is boasting a lineup of some of the genres’ finest who have been quite busy in 2016.

“What a GREAT show!!! Every single performer was amazing. So great to hear true artists who can SING and actually have something to say!!!!”

Throughout, Musiq gives his range an impressive workout, but it never seems forced; he never oversings or tortures notes just because he can, and he's always in the service of the song.”

“A true soul singer and distinct voice in R&B, Avery*Sunshine is in a lane of her own with a musical presence that is as relatable as it is mysteriously captivating.”

“Not many singers commentate on life the way Lyfe does. The R&B crooner's knack for talk about everyday issues gives him a unique voice and makes for value-added listening.”

Musiq Soulchild will headline the Tour following an exciting 2016 which includes his seventh studio album, Life on Earth entering the US Billboard 200 at #27, his single "I Do" reaching #3 on Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, and performing in the highly anticipated musical adaptation of the cult classic, Love Jones. He will be joined by platinum-selling R&B and soul singer-songwriter, Lyfe Jennings; beloved Grammy Nominated “First Couple of Soul”, Kindred the Family Soul and; Multi-Award Winning Artist, Avery*Sunshine whose loyal fan-base includes music icons Aretha Franklin, Baby Face, Teddy Riley, Jazzy Jeff, and Patti LaBelle. Also appearing on the tour, in select cities, are Grammy Award-Winning singer-songwriter Chrisette Michele, Grammy Nominated singer-songwriter and record producer Dwele, and Grammy Nominated group, The Foreign Exchange.

Along with his two platinum albums, two gold albums, and seven hit singles, Musiq Soulchild continues to amass industry nods such as awards from Billboard, BET, ASCAP, BMI, and Soul Train. He has also earned award nominations from MTV, the American Music Awards, the NAACP, and 11 Grammy nominations since arriving on the scene over 15 years ago. The singer who enjoys fusing soul, R&B, funk, jazz, and hip-hop has also enjoyed notable collaborations with Carlos Santana, Mary J. Blige, Ice Cube, tour mates Kindred the Family Soul, Ceelo, Bilal, Swizz Beatz, Estelle, and India Arie – perhaps some of them will make an appearance on the tour.

The cautionary tale spinner who is well-known for his superior lyricism and signature ballads -Lyfe Jennings - has been delighting his fans since his critically acclaimed platinum-selling debut album, Lyfe 268-192. With six studio albums under his belt, Billboard-charting projects, and notable features (Alicia Keys, LL Cool J, Rick Ross, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony), Jennings continues to raise his own bar. In 2013, he covered Michael Jackson’s classic hit, “Human Nature” exclusively for Grammy.com’s ReImagined series. And, in 2015, the raspy-voiced singer released Tree of Lyfe, which he has described as his most personal work to date.

"It just shows that people still value good music. We get so caught up in the vulgarity of the music that we forget that there's still love out here. Each one of my tour-mates reflect that love. I am honored to share the stage with them... Excited!!" Lyfe Jennings

“We’re excited to share our talents with a stellar line-up of our peers and for the chance to perform in front of audiences across the country, in places that we rarely get to travel to as well. We are sure it will be a great musical experience.” Kindred the Family Soul
