ESSENCE.com's "New and Next" column spotlights the brightest new talents we think you should know. This week we meet gospel group Ashmont Hill.
Made up of siblings Phil Thompson, April Joy Thompson, Deborah Bullock, and her husband Will Bullock (who couldn't be at the ESSENCE shoot because they were expecting a baby), the quartet describes their sound as "praise and worship" music. "We feel like our music is like a marriage of the two because we have those gospel influences," says April Joy. The group released their second album The Maze earlier this year.
Listen in and let us know what you think of Ashmont Hill.
