The Sojourners

Hold On

The Sojourner’s sing old school gospel music with soaring vocal harmonies and a churning sense of rhythm. This trio of deep-throated crooners have voices which capture the soulful beauty of faith-based music. They turn classic tunes like “Farther Along” and “Old Ship of Zion” into lush anthems of hope and prayer. They also know how to create a rollicking tempo that can make the listener want to jump up and testify. The singers are ably accompanied by a three-piece combo of spirited instrumentalists. The underlying guitar, double bass and drums that accompany the vocals on the clang a lang beat of “Children Go Where I Send Thee” and “Eyes on the Prize” provide ample reason enough to listen. You don’t have to believe in a particular religion to enjoy The Sojourners brand of gospel, you just have to appreciate the miracle of song.
