The Talleys are a southern gospel trio composed of Roger and Debra Talley, and their daughter Lauren Talley as the lead and soprano singer. Performing over 20 years, they have made appearances all over the world.

Group history[edit]

In the 1970s, Roger and Kirk got their start with the Hoppers. Debra sang with the Songmasters Quartet. Roger and Debra married in 1978. Debra joined Roger and as part of the Hoppers and Kirk went to the Cathedral Quartet. In 1984, Kirk wanted to start a new group with Roger and Debra prompting them to form The Talleys. In 1993, the group disbanded and Kirk started a solo career. But by the mid 1990s, Lauren's interest and talent in singing could not be ignored, prompting her mother and father to join with her in the formation of the Talley Trio in 1996.[1] The group has received numerous accolades from the GMA Dove Awards, Singing News Fan Awards, the Southern Gospel Music Guild Harmony Honors, the BMI Awards and SGN Music Awards.[2]

On June 25, 2011, the Talley Trio changed its name (back) to the Talleys.
