Hidden gems performed by Eastern North Carolina gospel groups!

Showcasing a rich heritage of family gospel music!

Eleven groups in eight days. A marathon recording session in a makeshift storefront studio in a 100-year-old building in the tiny Eastern North Carolina town of Fountain. When the groups on this record gathered to record in February of 2020, they couldn't have known that the world was on the heels of a global pandemic, or that the year would bring great turmoil and social upheavals.

Once the idea for this project of sacred and soul recordings was in place, Alice Vines of the Glorifying Vines Sisters started calling local musicians. It didn't take her long to line up almost a dozen groups to come lift their voices and represent the region's unique Sacred Soul traditions. In the reality created by gospel songs even the greatest of trials are not surprising, nor can they be ultimately devastating.

Every time singers stepped up to the mic during these sessions, they created a sonic world where no amount of bad news can undermine the truth of The Good News. Even when "you can't really see a solution to what you're dealing with at the moment," says Kiamber Daniels of Faith and Harmony, singing gospel music will remind you, "hey, I'm still here; I got what it takes to make it through this. It will give you a sense of peace."

Produced by Bruce Watson (Fat Possum/Big Legal Mess/Bible & Tire), this collection of sacred soul recordings of Eastern North Carolinian gospel groups is a one of a kind exploration. With a rich heritage of family gospel music, the artists in this area have been honing their craft over generations and have their own way of making the material original and unique. This is Sacred Soul of North Carolina.
