Soul On Board was the first solo album by Curt Smith, member of the British pop band Tears for Fears. It was released on 23 August 1993.

The album was Smith's first musical venture after leaving Tears For Fears in 1991. Preceded by the single "Calling Out", both the album and the single were ultimately unsuccessful and failed to chart in the UK. A second single, "Words", also failed to chart. Subsequently, the album was never released at all in the US, although advance promotional cassettes were distributed in the US in very limited quantities, indicating that a US release of the album was originally planned.

Smith himself later stated that he despises the album and alleges that he made it purely to fulfil his recording contract with Phonogram/Mercury Records.
