I'm Deletta Gillespie, a multidisciplinary performing artist, singer-songwriter and educator who creates musical and theatrical work that focuses on the themes of social change, justice and spirituality.


My work bears the trademarks of my sense of the quirky and absurd as filtered through the lens of my spirituality. On my own, and through collaboration with other artists, my mission is to devise work that serves as a conduit for facilitating dialogue, communication, and understanding between peoples and communities.



Thank You for your purchase!

Having walked away from two record deals over the course of her twenty-plus years in the music industry, singer/songwriter and performing artist Deletta Gillespie finally realized her dream of becoming a recording artist in 2013, and she's done it on her own terms.

Her first outing as a recording artist is called TRIUMPH(ant). The album is an eclectic collection of songs that celebrate triumphing over life's challenges and the lessons learned in that process. The music is firmly rooted in classic r&b and jazz, yet flavored with Gillespie' s favorite musical styles such as reggae, blues, and dance/disco. There' s even an slight nod to the hybrid of African and Celtic music .

Gillespie wrote the music for nine of the ten tracks, and co-wrote lyrics on three of those nine tracks with spoken word artist Shameeka Dream and singer/songwriter Novelair Peele.

Recorded live in front of an audience, the collection of songs on TRIUMPH(ant) are infused with messages of self-empowerment, or of social and spiritual relevance.

Since the cd's release on May 25th, it has garnered international attention, having been featured on the UK's Indie-Music-Network for four weeks straight. It has also been featured on two other podcasts, one in the UK and one in New York.

To purchase the cd -




CD available for $10.
