Gospel Belles

Singin', swingin' and ringin' those gospel bells!

One of Melbourne's most popular vocal ensembles in the African-American gospel style, the Gospel Belles, have launched their long-awaited debut EP.

The Gospel Belles — Kerri Simpson, Kelly Auty, Marisa Quigley and Diana Wolfe — are renowned for their power-packed vocals, humour and captivating stage shows.

Featuring seven of their favourite classic gospel tunes, the EP is a rousing, authentic and earthy tribute to the genre and an homage to revered gospel performers including the Staple Singers, Mahalia Jackson and Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Accompanied by Andrew ‘Big Boy Lemonade’ Ogburn on piano, the Gospel Belles' EP has captured the foot-stomping, hand-clapping and unabashed joy of their live performances.
