Deep Gospel Funk – Andrew Wartts and The Gospel Storytellers

Listen to an example: “Rich Man, Poor Man.”

Andrew Wartts, based in Bloomington, Illinois, recorded his landmark gospel album There Is A God Somewhere album in the early 1980s and released it on the small Champ imprint based in Nashville, Tennessee. Wartts sound – a mixture of soulful, funky, melancholic yet celebratory exhortations to the Lord – belies the music’s age. Now-Again represents both master and publishing for this wholly original entry into the Gospel-Funk archives.
