The Talleys at the Blue Gate
The Talleys have become one of the most beloved and respected groups in Christian music. The east Tennessee family’s unmistakable style of progressive southern gospel has kept them at the forefront of gospel music for many years. The hallmarks of the “Talley” sound are their lush arrangements, close-knit harmonies and powerful vocals.
The Talleys’ top priority in concert is to lift up Christ in their music while presenting the message with class and excellence. Their professionalism is only superseded by their ability to connect with an audience through warmth and sincerity.
They have enjoyed 10 number one singles, with 2 streaks of consecutive chart-toppers. Their most awarded, recognizable and requested songs include the hits: Searchin’, The Healer, I Love The Lord, The Answer Is Christ, Jesus Saves, His Life For Mine, The Debt, The Broken Ones, That’s Enough and Life Goes On.
In addition to these, they have received accolades for their hits “My Hope Is In The Lord,” “Mountain Mover,” “Orphans of God,” “Testify,” “The Promise,” “He’s Alive,” and “Applause.” Their songs and recordings have received awards and nominations from the Dove Awards, Singing News Fan Awards, the Southern Gospel Music Guild Harmony Honors, the BMI Awards and SGN Music Awards. Each member of the Talleys has received individual honors for their work.
The Talleys perform over 100 concerts per year and their travels have taken them all over the world. Overseas tours have brought them to Norway, Northern Ireland, Italy and South Africa. They regularly appear on the National Quartet Convention stage, the Singing In The Sun and Gatlinburg Gathering. They have performed on numerous Gaither Homecoming videos and were fixtures on the Gaither Homecoming Concert Tour from 1999-2005. They have graced the most legendary stages in America including Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, the Ryman Auditorium and the Grand Ole Opry. The Talleys were featured guests on the Billy Graham Crusade and have appeared on television with Pastor John Hagee, Dr. Charles Stanley and Oral Roberts Ministries.
A new chapter has begun for the Talleys with the marriage of Lauren Talley to Brian Alvey. Brian joins the Talleys on stage to make the group a foursome for the first time, bringing a new excitement to their concerts with his impressive vocal skills and extensive musical abilities, playing multiple instruments on stage.
Roger, Debra, Lauren and Brian are involved in many endeavors individually and keep a busy traveling and recording schedule, but they are focused on one goal: sharing the message of Christ. Whether in a church sanctuary, on a concert stage or around the dinner table, their focus is God and family.
