Michelle David & the Gospel Sessions

Next week, CAGG can reveal the first track of this soulful Christmas album by Dutch-American band Michelle David & the Gospel Sessions. Singer Michelle was born 'n raised in the States, the guys behind her are also active in hard funk band Lefties Soul Connection and Beans & Fatback, you may remember them from THIS Christmas single. MD&tGS started out as a very minimal (just voice and acoustic guitars) ode to folksy gospel, but have grown into a scorching live band. See this, for instance. The Christmas album features two covers (Stevie Wonder's What Christmas Means to Me and Silent Night) and the rest are self-penned songs. Think Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, that's a good reference.
