What’s Behind The Musiq Spotlight?


Welcome!  My name is Detrel Howell and in addition to being a native of New York, an  intense music lover and the co-founder of  a company called One Nation Under The Soul Shack which is better known to most as “ONUTSS”  ~ I enjoy shining “The Spotlight” on individuals who may not be known to others.  The purpose of this blog spot is to do just that — turn the mic over to people who work hard behind-the-scenes and might not receive their just due.  As a part of the ONUTSS team, we are often asked by others who they should connect to within the indie soul circle.  The aim is to introduce you to people who may only be names to you, show you just why you need to know them and create a path for those bonds to be formed.

Check out Who’s In The Spotlight — these are the people you should connect with, click on their names and learn more about what services they offer.

    This is just a short note of thanks from ME (the person behind “The Spotlight”) to all who have agreed to be featured and to those who have stopped by to check this blog out. I am really overjoyed that in a few short days, there have been more than 300 hits. What’s truly important to me — and the real reason for putting this together — is to connect people, pure and honest. There are so many resources and links for independent musicians today — and for prmoters like myself.

    For all independent musicians — utilize these contacts — these folks have made themselves and their services available to you. Everyone is approachable and has your best interest at heart. Don’t hesitate!

    Remember — no man is an island and we are a greater force, unified than separate — so let’s join together and make INDIE SOUL a true force to be reckoned with!
