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.
Gillespie's first cd - TRIUMPH(ant) recorded live before an audience was released in May, and the cd release concert and benefit was held on Sunday, June 9. 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.
