SOUL FREEDOM LIVE


Soul Freedom Live presented by Mike Ashley, Rozaya Hopkins and Beki Wills. This great show focus on all that is soul especially neo and independent soul. Listen out for interviews with established and up & coming artists. Wednesday’s 7pm-9pm (GMT).

Soul Freedom Live is run and managed by the three DJ’s and forms part of a bigger initiative all promoting and focusing on Soul Music and new Independent Soul Music predominantly including:

  • Soul Freedom – radio and DJ services
  • Indie Soul Mixer – major networking events for artists in New York and Atlanta
  • Life and Soul Promotions – the initial umbrella organization incorporating websites and social media
  • Soul Freedom Live was set up to promote live music and in particular local talent

Mike has a wealth of experience and knowledge, particularly new artists from the US, Rozaya is a local artist, sole performer and lead with World Music band Jama, Beki a visual artist runs our creative side, but also has an extensive collection and knowledge of Soul Music.

GENRES PLAYED


  • Modern Soul 100%
  • Soulful House 100%
  • Neo Soul 100%
  • Funk 100%
  • Jazz 100%

SFL was launched as a vehicle to promote new and upcoming Independent Soul Artists but with some added variations. Beki Wills was placed in charge of Art and Design, internet and promotion and Rozaya Hopkins, a singer/songwriter, was to use her band ‘The Thorns’ as the ‘house’ band’.

She was also to become our main resident performer, host and artist liaison for the local artists. Together we are SFL and between us we carry out all the other functions to make it work!

We focus significantly on New and Independent Soul Music, both local and international.  However we stray from this sometimes to include music from our collections of Soul Music from the 60’s right up to the present day, supplemented by other genres of Black Music including Reggae, Hip Hop, Gospel, Spoken Word, Jazz, House and more.

We also regularly have guests in the studio, local artists or DJ’s, or artists visiting Bristol.

Mike, Rozaya & Beki
