Triple O starts again ahead of new album

Six years is a long time in music, especially if you’re a Triple O fan. That’s how long it’s been since Triple O released an LP. The wait is almost over. The MOBO winner just dropped what will be the first single from the new album. We think it’s hit material. The track’s called Started…

Review: Travis Greene @ Hippodrome, Golders Green

“I’m just a worshipper who loves God.” These words said on stage by Travis Greene were more than empty remarks. He didn’t come all the way from the US to give a halfhearted performance. He put everything in because he’s clearly passionate about the one he’s doing it for. At his gig at the Hippodrome…

Travis Greene: Shut up and get involved!

  Travis Greene has called on the church to stop complaining about the world culture and do something about changing it. He said that believers are really good at moaning about the things they’re unhappy about, instead of becoming part of the positive change they want to see. Greene spoke to the Sound Doctrine in…

Review: Premier Gospel Awards 2017

Retro is cool again. There’s nothing quite like a little dose of nostalgia to bring back happy memories from yesteryear. So in celebrating the cutting edge of gospel music in the UK at the Premier Gospel Awards 2017, the odd sprinkle of old school was welcome. First, we have to mention G Force. A decade after…

Has mainstream hip hop found its faith?

“This album is actually a Gospel album,” said Kanye West ahead of the release of his Life of Pablo album. Most of us howled with laughter. But once we stitched up our sides that had literally (yes literally) split, we had to think, why would Kanye make such a statement? Aside from his 2004 hit…

Review: Christon Gray @ St Mary’s Church, London

Let the records state that we’re not huge fans of sit down gigs, especially where hip hop is concerned. It was a relief then the the first thing that both JGivens and Christon Gray did at their London show was to bring the audience to the front of the stage. This wasn’t a night of…

Review: Sarah Téibo @ Hard Rock Cafe

It’s a venue that’s hosted the likes of Aerosmith, Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney but it’s never been known for hosting gospel events. In fact, Sarah Téibo’s show at the Hard Rock Cafe in London might well have been a first. The venue was perfect for this type of show. It was intimate, with the…

Premier Gospel’s UK Gospel Show announces 2017 Ones to Watch

One thing that we hope is true: 2017 HAS to be better than last year. Saying that, we did see a lot of great music released by British artists in 2016 and the horizon looks promising for the next 12 months. The UK Gospel Show on Premier Gospel has named the people it thinks will…

Review: Becca Folkes @ Regent Hall, London

Wow. Just wow. If we had our own way, that would be the extent of our review of last night’s Becca Folkes live show. But apparently, it’s considered bad form to be THAT succinct. You get the point, though – we enjoyed it. Initially, we were a bit concerned. How can a singer with such…
