ROCK MY SOUL
Roots-based, Raise-the-Rafters Gospel for Everyone!
“Unless you’re from the South or attend a church with a bangin’ choir, you’re not likely to hear bona fide gospel tunes sung the way Rock My Soul performs them.” Jon Nolan,The Wire
Five of the driving forces behind New England’s highly acclaimed Rock My Soul Gospel Choir branch off to form a roots-based sound of rich vocal blends and soul-stirring harmonies, with a repertoire that explores American music from the Delta blues of greats such as Blind Willie Johnson, to the folk gospel of Washington Phillips, to the more contemporary Americana music of Buddy Miller and the Band’s Levon Helm. Along the way, listeners are treated to traditional arrangements of slave spirituals, hymns, and songs from the “golden age of gospel.”
