The Talleys are a progressive southern gospel group composed of Roger and Debra Talley, their daughter Lauren, and her husband Brian Alvey.
In the 1970s, Roger got his start with the Hoppers. Debra sang with the Songmasters Quartet. They married in 1978. Debra joined Roger as part of the Hoppers, and in 1984, formed the Talleys, along with Roger's brother, Kirk Talley. In 1993, the group disbanded. But by the mid 1990s, Lauren's interest and talent in singing could not be ignored, prompting her mother and father to join with her in the formation of the Talley Trio in 1996. The group has received numerous accolades from the GMA Dove Awards, Singing News Fan Awards, the Southern Gospel Music Guild Harmony Honors, the BMI Awards and SGN Music Awards.
On June 25, 2011, Lauren Talley married Brian Alvey. He officially became a member of the group on September 1, 2011--thus changing their name from the Talley Trio (back) to The Talleys. Brian sings, plays piano, bass, and guitar. He also writes songs.
