When Marcus Mosely, Will Sanders and Ron Small went into the studio to do background vocals for blues legend Jim Byrnes’ latest JUNO Award winning album, House of Refuge, the gospel trio took on an identity of its own. Dubbed by Byrnes as The Sojourners, they have developed a significant following as a result of ongoing critical acclaim from the CD and ensuing public performances.

In March 2007, producer Steve Dawson took The Sojourners into the studio. Their debut CD Hold On was released on the Black Hen Music label in Canada, the UK and Europe in September 2007. The album has been nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award in the Outstanding Roots Recording category. The lead track "Eyes on the Prize" has been selected for inclusion in an upcoming Time-Life compilation celebrating the music of the American civil rights era.

The Sojourners have been nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award in the Vocal Group of the Year category. They have also received a nomination for a MapleBlues Award in the New Artist/Group category.

Highlights of the group’s first two years include a definitive show with the Dixie Hummingbirds, opening spots with Jim Byrnes at the Vancouver Jazz Festival for both Dr. John and the Blind Boys of Alabama and featured stages at the Vancouver Folk Festival, the Edmonton Folk Festival, the Canmore Folk Music Festival and the Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival.
