Pittsburgh Artist of the Week: The Homeless Gospel Choir

Pittsburgh protest punks The Homeless Gospel Choir released a pair of new songs for the new year with the intention of sparking some hope inside of us for easier days ahead. Paired with “Harrisburg Shoes” on a split EP featuring Asbury Park’s Teenage Halloween, “Pittsburgh Shoes” is a song of celebration and encouragement. Front man Derek Zanetti reminds us there is a bright light at the end of the sadness tunnel we’ve been traveling through for the past 22 months. Zanetti wrote this song for his friends as a reminder that he loves and misses them.
