The soulful blues singer and multi-instrumentalist credits her gift to her roots in gospel music,
like so many great and soul singers before her.
Her musical journey started when she began singing in church where her Dad was a preacher.
She played piano, drums, bass and guitar and early on assumed the role of choir director.
Her artistic reputation grew within the gospel community which led to
touring professionally with gospel groups.
Not only are Tullie's influences steeped in gospel music, while traveling and performing
she was influenced by the sounds of Blues, Soul, Country and Rock 'n Roll.
If you were privy to Tullie's Ipod "favorites", you would discover a broad spectrum
of musical genres and eras.
