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 flavours and African Rhythms.
