Gospel Soul

United States


For the past 4 years the band has criss-crossed the globe. Playing sold out shows at clubs, theatres and festivals from north to south, east to west. Capturing the heart and soul of every person there.

After the release of five critically acclaimed gospel-infused albums, an Edison nomination (the Dutch Grammy) and numerous TV performances, the band was on the boards of ‘NOS Studio Sport’ and ‘NPO1’. All of this even before the release of a new album. They were invited to accompany the daily TV show with music during the Winter Olympics 2022.

That being said, the past few years have rendered further personal development and awareness of who Michelle David & The True-tones are. We know them as a band that makes every show a soul spectacle with their unique gospel combined with soul, blues, jazz and afrobeat. Now with a new album coming up; ‘Truth & Soul’ (29-04-2022) they expanded their musical horizon even more. Dreamy Indie soul with a heavy 70’s vibe mixed with Brazilian flavors and African Rhythms.

‘’When there was talk of a new album, I was a little worried. I didn’t think I had anything else to say; especially since nothing dramatic was happening in my current life. But again, the honesty of the music spoke to me and positivity became the angle. I have never felt so free. When the guys agreed to sit down without a rehearsal and sing/record whatever came to mind for the song Wait… so much beauty emerged. A personal highlight.

“I really appreciate how much they trusted me”, says Michelle. Truth & Soul is the first album Michelle David & The True-tones will release under their new name.

MDTT teamed up with French Artist /Graphic Designer Jean Mosambi who created the artwork for the album. Truth & Soul also contains particularly personal duets with Lilian Vieira and Dobet Gnahoré, both well known for their extraordinary musical talent. Knowing who we are enables us to connect even more with those around us.- Michelle. ‘You Can Make it’ (the first single of the album) features Grammy – Winner Dobet Gnahoré. Hailing from Côte d’Ivoire Dobet Gnahoré is one of Africa’s hottest and most beloved artists.
