  • The Rogue Folk Club presents The Sojourners | Tonye Aganaba

You probably have heard how The Sojourners got their start. When Canadian blues icon Jim Byrnes called Vancouver based gospel singer Marcus Mosely on the phone back in 2006 to ask if he could round up a few friends to record some backup vocals for a new album, no one could have guessed what would happen next.

From the moment Mosely and his pals stepped up to the microphone and began singing, they realized that they had something very special going on. When Byrnes dubbed the trio The Sojourners the name stuck and – as they say – the rest is history.

Formative years spent singing in the churches of Marcus Mosely, Will Sanders and Khari McClelland, (from Ralls Texas, Alexandria Louisiana and Detroit Michigan respectively) give The Sojourners' sound an authentic edge that only comes with experience. This is real gospel ... blessed with a soul that can't be faked.

In The Sojourners' universe, echoes of doo wop, R&B, country and blues weave together to create a unique sound that has all but vanished from today's world. This is gospel music that can take a punch and remain standing. Singing praise music with their own special 'stank', the Vancouver based Sojourners sound just as at home in a road house bar as they do in a revival tent.

Their fourth CD is called 'Freedom Never Dies'. We are including a preview of two of the songs on the new EP if you click on the link. One is a track simply called 'Harry Moore'. Harry Tyson Moore was an African-American educator, a pioneer leader of the civil rights movement, founder of the first branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in Brevard County, Florida, and president of the state chapter of the NAACP.
