Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens

Brooklyn, New York

Like many gospel and rhythm and blues singers, Naomi Davis grew up singing with her sisters in their Alabama church. She has also spent much of her life in the soul clubs around New York so it’s clear that her singing is equally influenced by both facets of her life. This is soul music – informed by the church, perhaps, but soul music nonetheless, relatable to all.
