The Talley Trio -


About The Talley Trio

Comprised of a husband-wife combo, Roger and Debra Talley, plus their daughter Lauren, the Talley Trio specializes in contemporary gospel. They have a unique, progressive sound that combines southern gospel with praise and worship, and hymns with lush arrangements, close-knit harmonies and powerful vocals.


Roger got his start in the 1970's with another gospel outfit, the Hoppers, while Debra sang with the Songmasters Quartet.  After their marriage in 1978, Debra joined Roger as part of the Hoppers, and in 1984, formed the Talleys, along with Roger's brother, Kirk.  It wasn't long after that till they became one of Christian music’s most acclaimed and beloved trios, receiving a 1992 Dove Award and Grammy nomination.

Deciding they were best needed at home with their daughter Lauren, the band split in 1993.  In the late 90's, Lauren began expressing an interest in singing, prompting her mother and father joining her in the formation of the Talley Trio. The new band immediately began releasing albums, resulting in such releases as 1998's So Thankful, 1999's Life Story, and 2000's Testament (the latter produced three Top Five hits, including the number one single and SGMA Song of the Year nominee, "Searchin'").  While carrying on a family tradition, the new group has enjoyed nine number one singles, with six occurring consecutively.



They travel in excess of 100 dates per year, ranging from church settings to the Gaither Homecoming Concert Tour, cruises with Pastor John Hagee and overseas tours to Northern Ireland , Italy , South Africa and Norway . Their songs and recordings have won numerous accolades from the Singing News Fan Awards, the Southern Gospel Music Guild Harmony Honors, the Southern Gospel Music Association, the BMI Awards, and the SGN Music Awards. Their hits, “Testify” and “The Healer" were honored in 2002 and 2003 respectively with the BMI Award for radio airplay. Their project, Rise Above, received four SGN Music Awards in 2007, including Album of the Year and Song of the Year for “Mountain Mover." Their 2005 project, Praise For The Ages, also received the SGN Music Award for Album of the Year. Their number-one hit, “His Life For Mine" received the 2006 Southern Gospel Music Guild Harmony Honor for Song of the Year.
