Bio

God loves when all his children dance… the Stapletones are that kind of Gospel group… make you want to sing, dance & shout. A rootsy collaboration of stunning church singers & blues players delivers the anointed power from the Tap-root of America’s music… Gospel … harkening back to the days when the Staple Singers, the Carter Family, Rev Dan Smith, Blind Willie Johnson, Ray Charles, Mahalia, Aretha all laid their souls out on the line, in their Gospel music.

Fronted by two of Austin's finest local church voices, backed by the prodigious Peterson Brothers (ages 19 & 17)… their music gives folks a liftin’, the devil a kickin’, and gets his children to dancin’.

Influential Artists: Mavis & Pops Staples, Rev Dan Smith, Blind Willie Johnson, Curtis Mayfield, the Soul Stirrers, Mahalia Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, the Carter Family, the Fairfield Four, Blind Boys of Alabama.
