Good Morning World!
Here’s the scoop on my morning vibe today. The Searcy, Arkansas original trio… Beth Ditto (vocalist), Kathy Mendonca (drummer), and Nathan Howdeshell (guitarist) left their home town moving to Olympia, Washington were their group, Gossip (formerly The Gossip) was formed in 1999.
Between 1999 and now Gossip has had a new drummer, released a few albums (2 EP’s included) under various independent labels before being signed to a major record label, Columbia records. It’s no secret to what Beth has done from posing nude on a cover of a UK magazine–opening designer fashion shows–going triple gold in Germany to representing the plus size curvy gals loud & proud throughout the indie-pop culture.
“Joyful Noise” is Gossip’s 5th album, released May 2012, was produced by the industry’s pop genius Brian Higgins who also worked with Pet Shop Boys, Girls Aloud, and Kylie Minogue. The bands 2nd single released from the album is a single of empowering lyrics filled with soul combined with energy releasing beats lifting you up to “Move In The Right Direction.”
