2011 begins a new chapter for the Talleys with the marriage of Lauren Talley to Brian Alvey.

Roger, Debra, Lauren and Brian are involved in many endeavors individually and keep a busy traveling and recording schedule, but they are focused on one goal: sharing the message of Christ. Whether in a church sanctuary, on a concert stage or around the dinner table, their focus is God and family.

Accomplished pianist, producer, arranger and singer Roger Talley has enjoyed over 35 successful years in gospel music that began in the Smoky Mountains of east Tennessee. Roger grew up on the family farm and when not working in the fields, was at the piano playing and singing with his siblings. After graduating from the University of Tennessee with a degree in agricultural business, Roger received a phone call from Claude Hopper, which began Rogers gospel music career as the Hoppers pianist and arranger for 10 years. In 1984 Roger, wife Debra and brother Kirk formed the Talleys, one of Christian musics most acclaimed and groundbreaking groups, with a tradition that continues today.

Rogers skills are to be credited for the Talleys innovative arrangements and musical style. In addition to the Talleys recordings, Roger has produced many artists such as Jake Hess, Ivan Parker, the Collingsworth Family, the Greenes, the Kingsmen, Sue Dodge, Tribute Quartet and the John Hagee Family. Roger has been awarded for his achievements in recording by the Southern Gospel Music Guild Harmony Honors in 2004 and the SGN Music Awards in 2007 as Producer of the Year. Roger co-owns the Summit Recording Studio in Morristown, Tennessee and is also a board member of Abraham Productions, which sponsors the Singing In The Sun, the Gatlinburg Gathering and numerous other marquee events in gospel music.

When not on stage or in the studio, Roger enjoys following all University of Tennessee sports teams and the Tennessee Titans.
