  The Staples Jr. Singers were part of a vanguard of soul gospel artists in the 1970s that broke from tradition to testify with the groove. They found their inspiration in the secular music they heard on the radio, and wrote songs that were nothing but stone cold soul. Like many gospel groups at the time, they were a family band: The Browns from Aberdeen, Mississippi. Annie was 11, A.R.C was 12, and Edward was 13 when they got their start, building a reputation by playing school talent shows and front yards in tow. “We were so strange and we were so young,” says Edward Brown, “and a lot of people didn’t understand that.” Every weekend, they would pile into their family van and travel across the Bible Belt, performing sometimes as many as three shows in a single day. Back then, the South was desegregated on paper but not always in practice, and the Staples Jr. Singers weren’t always sure what kind of welcome they would receive—whether a new audience would embrace them, whether local restaurants would serve them. Forty years, three generations, and countless performances later, the original members of the Staples Jr. Singers are still on the circuit, performing almost every weekend at local churches as the Brown Singers and the Caldwell Singers. While they’ve written an entire catalog of gospel music since 1975’s When Do We Get Paid, for the Staples Jr. Singers, the incantatory funk of this music still holds the power to help make a way out of dark and troubled times. “I can be a witness,” Annie says, “Back then you could feel it. You were basing it on yourself. These are the songs that are really going to take us over.”

Sales Points:
- This project is a continuation of the critically acclaimed compilation World Spirituality Classics 2: The Time for Peace Is Now: Gospel Music About Us, which features “We’ve Got a Race to Run” by the Staples Jr. Singers.
- The Time for Peace Is Now was awarded Best New Music (8.5) on Pitchfork and was listed among the best re-issues in 2019 by Uncut, NPR and many others.
- Lead singer Annie Brown Caldwell featured in the 2020 Vinyl Factory documentary “The Time For Peace Is Now.”
- Staples Jr. Singers will play select shows in the U.S. and Europe, throughout 2022 and they could very well be one of the best bands you’ll see all year.
