Encyclopedia > Blue eyed soul

Blue-eyed soul is soul music as performed by white people and usually as intended for white audiences. It exists in constrast to soul music performed by blacks. Many blue-eyed soul performers are British, and several of these artists have actually been mistaken for being black.

Ironically, the artists who have had the longest careers in this genre have done so by building a significant black following, as exemplified by the success of Hall & Oates, George Michael and Teena Marie on the R&B charts in the 1980s.
