“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

Formed in April 2004, Rock My Soul has established itself as a burgeoning musical force. With its unique brand of rousing, raise-the-rafters gospel music, the group has garnered an ever-growing following, and has performed to packed houses throughout New England. Rock My Soul’s concerts attract hundreds of paying fans, who often dance in the aisles to a sound that is at once traditional and contemporary. In October 2005, Rock My Soul shared the stage with Boston’s legendary Silver Leaf Gospel Singers. As one member of the Boston group exclaimed, “You just don’t get to hear gospel done that way anymore. I’m so glad you all are doing it!”

Rock My Soul is as tight and polished as a fine choral group, yet has the immediacy and soulfulness of the old-time, “golden age” American gospel sound it seeks to revive. And while Rock My Soul’s performances have never failed to bring audiences to their feet, this secular group is not only about entertaining, but also about educating—they share bits of background on the stories behind the songs during shows and in concert programs, and some members present workshops on the history of the music and its tremendous, powerful and positive impact on our culture, especially during Slavery and the Civil Rights movement.
Rock My Soul’s repertoire includes songs ranging from the Negro spirituals of the 1700s to the contemporary rootsy gospel of Ruthie Foster and the timeless soulfulness of the Staples Singers. Along the way, listeners will also be treated to selections by blues-based gospel master Blind Willie Johnson, the traditional white southern gospel of Bill Monroe and Alfred A. Brumley (whose “I’ll Fly Away” has become the most recorded gospel song of all time), and lesser known gems by gospel greats such as the Davis Sisters and the Angelic Gospel Singers.

Because of its focus on the heritage and appreciation of gospel music in our culture, Rock My Soul’s shows are suitable for most types of events and occasions, and for audience members of all ages.
