17 years... 7-7-2023...Still going strong...!
The magazine has amassed 105 editions over a 17 year period since 2006. Many of the publications are full of historical and education information, straight from the mouths of those universally around the world who’ve contributed to the music we are passionate about. The Soul Survivors have been blessed to feature interviews of some who are no longer here as well as those who are breaking or have broken through showcasing their artistry. The back issues are available individually or as an entire back catalogue, so please have a sneak preview to see what issues, if not all, appeal to you.
