MARK TRAMMELL QUARTET RELEASES PREVIOUS AND NEW RELEASES TO MUSIC STREAMING PLATFORMS

FOR THE FIRST TIME THE MARK TRAMMELL QUARTET RELEASES PREVIOUS AND NEW RELEASES TO MUSIC STREAMING PLATFORMS.

After many requests from fans and artists alike, the Mark Trammell Quartet has made their brand new release, Classic, plus a backlog of previous CD’s available on music streaming platforms. These platforms include: Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube, Pandora, iHeart Radio, Deezer, the world’s largest streaming platform, Spotify, and more.

“It is with much thought and prayer that we have made our music available, literally, to the whole world.” says Mark Trammell. “Though streaming rates are still a concern for most artists, including the Mark Trammell Quartet, God has always provided for this ministry and always will. It is time for the hope of the Gospel to be in as many corners of the world as possible, both for the evangelism of the lost and the encouragement of the church.”

Wherever you stream music, the Mark Trammell Quartet invites you to follow them on your favorite platform, enjoy their current release, Classic, and/or add your favorite songs from previous releases to a playlist. For Amazon users, the ability to say, “Hey Alexa, play the Mark Trammell Quartet!” is now a reality. Even playing music straight from your TV on the YouTube app or the ability to listen to music on your phone or ipad, is now easier than ever.

There are many ways to support the ministry of the Mark Trammell Quartet. While streaming adds another dimension to that, MTQ is by no means diminishing the sale of physical CDs or USBs from their website or merchandise table. However, as the group exceeds its 20th year on the road it is not possible to stock every previous product in physical media form. Streaming assists with keeping the music fans love available even when they are discontinued. The Mark Trammell Quartet looks to continue to add previous projects to streaming in the future – so if you’re looking for ways to listen to discontinued projects like “God Has Provided” or “Treasures” MTQ’s unofficial tribute to the Cathedral Quartet, stay tuned to announcements on MTQ’s social media platforms and website.

Scotty Inman Added as Exclusive Songwriter to Daywind Music Publishing

Nashville, TN (October 4, 2023) – Scotty Inman and Daywind Music Publishing are pleased to announce the signing of an exclusive songwriting agreement.  This announcement comes on the heels of Scotty’s recent signing to Daywind Records as a recording artist.

The esteemed songwriter is honored to join the ranks of the respected songwriters who call Daywind home.  Inman has been awarded by BMI four times for songs recorded by Triumphant Quartet, as well as LeFevre Quartet, and has enjoyed cuts from numerous other artists such as Legacy Five, Joseph Habedank, The Kingsmen, The Taylors,  The Erwins, and many others.  Songs from his pen, such as “Going There” and “Sun’s Gonna Come Up” have topped the Singing News radio charts eight times, and Scotty’s current single “Anywhere Jesus Is” was just announced as the #1 song on the first Singing News Faith Country Top 40 chart.  Most recently, Scotty Inman’s focus has been writing new material for his upcoming release on Daywind Records.

Rick Shelton shares, “Scotty Inman expresses his ideas in lyrics that are truly original and in music that is identifiable and fresh. As impressed as I am with his songwriting, singing and public presentation, I am inspired by his character. Daywind was Scotty’s first publisher for nearly a decade, and this feels like a homecoming! I can’t wait to start promoting the hits that he will create.”

“I’m thrilled to be back where my writing journey began!” continues Scotty Inman.  “Almost two decades ago, Rick Shelton and Daywind Publishing took a chance on a young aspiring songwriter, and I’ll never forget that. About ten years ago, I decided to take a step away, and at that time Rick said that I always had a home at Daywind when I was ready to come back.  That time has come, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. So, for all the artists who are looking to cut a project soon, please remember to reach out to Rick and ask for my entire catalog!”

Daywind Music Publishing is home to an award-winning roster of songwriters including Lee Black, Jody Braselton, Jim Brady, Melissa Brady, Clint Brown, Riley Harrison Clark, Jason Cox, Natalie Cromwell, Janice Crow, Seth Elbe, Marty Funderburk, Joseph Habedank, Mike Harland, Wayne Haun, Matthew Lawson, Tim Lovelace, Devin McGlamery, Rob Mills, Levi Mills, Jacob Mills, Karen Peck Gooch, John Darin Rowsey, Belinda Smith, Jonathan C.

Steve Ladd Announces New Solo Ministry

Gospel Music Fan Favorite, Steve Ladd, Announces New Solo Ministry

Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame inductee, Steve Ladd, today announces the relaunch of his solo career after a four-year hiatus. Over the past two decades, Steve has carved an indomitable legacy as one of Gospel Music’s most exceptional vocalists by lending his voice to Gospel Music classics, Come Sunday Morning, One More River, and one of the greatest anthems ever recorded in Christian Music, worldwide hit, Preach the Word.

Steve shares, “I want to say how thankful I am, that, throughout my life, God has not only allowed me to use my voice to serve Him, but has also allowed me to follow a dream that I have had since I was a child: to travel and share in song, the love and hope He has for us all. I have always tried to be sensitive to the leading of God to be exactly where he wants me to be. But, also, to hearken to that same leading when told, to step out in faith in a different direction. Over the past several months, I have felt it was time to do just that.”

“This August,” Steve continues, “I let the guys know that I would be resigning from the tenor position with Anthem Edition, not only because I believe sincerely that it is the direction that God is leading me, but also due to the amount of travel involved with a full-time quartet. My goal will still be to go and share my heart and the love of Jesus with as many people as possible, but now it will unfold within the confines of a solo ministry where my beautiful wife, Maegan, can travel with me.

Steve’s journey is a testament to the seasons of life, each with its unique purpose, and he expresses heartfelt gratitude for the chapter shared with Anthem Edition. “I want to thank Chris White of Sonlite Records, for involving me in the relaunching of the quartet. I appreciate Doug and Tim for asking me to partner with them in this endeavor back in 2019, and I truly wish them the best in everything they pursue. Great things are in store for Anthem Edition!”

Steve shared that all solo engagements for the month of December are currently filled with January, February, and March quickly following suit. Be watching for tour dates and new music announcements soon. To secure Steve for your upcoming event, reach out to him at: contactsteveladdmusic@gmail.com or contact by phone at 256.504.4958.

Browns Release New Christmas Recording

Nashville, TN (September 22, 2023) When the musical talents of the legendary City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra are combined with the vocal talents of a gifted family, the end result is a musical masterpiece. Then when all 10 songs are Christmas classics, the project becomes filled with holiday cheer that takes listeners on a joyful and festive journey. 
Just in time for the Christmas season, Club44 Records has announced the October 20, 2023, release of a brand new recording from one of Christian music’s most talented families, The Browns. Shelly, Michaela, Adam and Andrew, collectively known as The Browns, left their quaint hometown of Le Mars, IA, for the Czech Republic to enlist the assistance of the famed City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra to create a Christmas collection that is sure to become a holiday favorite for many years to come.
Christmas In Prague is a yuletide recording like no other, as it offers both traditional, yet modern arrangements to some of the most popular Christmas classics that have been recorded over the past century. Recorded in the center of Bohemia in the Czech Republic, each song features intricate harmonies and powerful instrumentation that capture the true essence of what Christmas is all about. 
The new release features Christmas classics like “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “Silver Bells,” “O Holy Night” and “Little Drummer Boy.” A special highlight of the recording is “Snow.” “This song has become a holiday staple, not only for its clever lyric and melody by Irving Berlin, but also for its harmonic passages. It’s fun. It’s whimsical and a classic,” Shelly Brown states. 
Another special highlight of the recording is “Good King Wenceslas.” “To record an album with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra,” Shelly explains, “and not pay tribute to the patron saint of Bohemia would be a glaring omission.” The stirring arrangement is complete with dramatic crescendos and pauses to magnify the powerful lyrics to this traditional and heartwarming hymn, written in 1853.
Michaela Brown expressed her excitement about the new recording, “Every album we record has a special aspect and story with it. This Christmas in Prague album has been extra special from the beginning. We have two of the best arrangers and orchestrators, Wayne Haun and David Clydesdale. We were able to travel with them to the historic city of Prague, Czech Republic and experience the recording of the orchestra live! We chose classic Christmas pieces that everyone knows and loves, and we are so excited to be sharing this music with you during this special season of the year!”
Club44 Records label co-founder, Ernie Haase, shared his enthusiasm about this new offering from The Browns, “I have known The Browns since they were kids, and I knew when I met them just how special they are. It has been fun to watch as their music career has flourished over the years, so fast forward to this epic recording, Christmas in Prague, and it just confirms what I suspected 20 years ago…they always deliver with great professionalism, great entertainment value and, most of all, unparalleled GREAT family harmony. You’ve got to hear this record!”
Since 2015, this musical family has enjoyed hosting performances at their very own Browns Century Theater in their hometown of Le Mars. Each season, the family performs to sold-out crowds five days a week during November and December. This year those sold-out audiences will enjoy a little taste of Prague as they visit the quiet town of Le Mars.
For 20 years, The Browns have brought joy to listeners worldwide with their musical talents, rich family harmonies and exuberant energy. This most recent Christmas recording is sure to bring listeners even more joy for decades to come.
Pre-add/pre-save Christmas In Prague today to listen to the beautiful rendition of “Snow.” Distributed exclusively by The Orchard/Sony Music, Christmas in Prague will be available on all digital platforms worldwide on October 20, 2023
