California Indie soul/country/folk/blues/gospel band Eagle Rock Gospel Singers is currently touring and will be at First Avenue’s 7th Street Entry on 7/7. Tickets are still available HERE
Will Wadsworth formed The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers in the winter of 2010 following a failed relationship, a band dissolution and a scary airplane ride. In order to respark his interest in music, he and his roommate, Jeremy Horton, gathered friends together to sing old Gospel songs. They sang songs inspired by their love of Washington Phillips, The Staples Singers, Mahalia Jackson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe – you know, the real classics – and held house parties just so they could perform.
