The digital and physical album will be delivered to you by or prior to March 10 official release date.

We’re keeping alive a huge legacy of African American a capella gospel music with a new CD and need your help to do it. We’ve been in the studio the last two months and have come up with an album that features some new, unheard material and some old classics (one that’s been in the Library of Congress since 1939). These are songs that have inspired the civil rights movement and legendary rockers like James Brown and Elvis Presley. After a hiatus from recording and touring for a while, we are ready to share our music with the world again!

We have a lot happening in the coming months and plan to do some real touring, so it’s likely we will be coming through your neighborhood very soon. Our CD will be released on March 10 in conjunction with a major PBS TV Special called “Rock My Soul” with special guests, The McCrary Sisters, Lucinda Williams, Lee Ann Womack, Amos Lee, Van Hunt and Buddy Miller. Stay tuned for airing in your area in the first two weeks of March. Following that, a live concert tour of the same name will be organized for the second half of 2015 (featuring us in performance with the McCrary Sisters) and we hope you will come out to be with us when we come through your town! Expect appearances at major music festivals like Telluride, Edmonton Folk Festival and many more. We’ve started our own record label, Fairfield Four Records, and with that added responsibilty come new challenges in working with publicists, distributors, tour managers, manufacturers and so many others – frankly, it can be a little overwhelming but with your support and kindness we know we can do it!

Whenever we are in your town, we’d love to come by and do an intimate house concert (small PA system may be necessary), vocal workshop or just do a shake and howdy at an upcoming show. Below on this page you’ll find some rare legacy items from the earlier groups – some original, some reproductions. You’ll also find stuff connected to the current group, because we want you to feel like you are a part of us! Feel free to check in to this page regularly and see what we’ve been up to. We’ll have news items of tales on the road, videos of behind the scenes recording and rehearsing, still pics with our fans and much more. We’re expecting big things to be happening in 2015 and beyond and want you to be a part of it!
