OLD TIME PREACHERS QUARTET - Long Live Old Time Religion
The Old Time Preachers Quartet brings their dedication to the historic sound of quartet music as they present solid Southern Gospel on their newest album, “Long Live Old Time Religion.” A total of twelve songs bring sincere messages with new songs and older favorites alike. The classics include “Everybody Will Be Happy Over There” while the new songs include the title song, “Long Live Old Time Religion” by Rebecca J. Peck.
“He Has” by Mark Wheeler has been singled to radio with its message of God’s faithfulness and power. The chorus of the song says, “He has been the greatest friend this world has ever known. He has paid the debt on Calvary all alone. He has given me a melody and song. He has, yes, He has.”
After 41 years with the Inspirations, Mike Holcomb is well-known as one of Southern Gospel’s top bass singers, and is a six-time Singing News Fan Awards Favorite Bass Vocalist. Les Butler has had 41 years in radio, as a producer and as former publisher of Singing News. Bob Sellers is a former lead vocalist of the Kingsmen, while Adam Borden, formerly of Gold City, and Tim Owens, formerly with Cross 4 Crowns and the Inspirations, round out the group.
In describing their process, the group says, “The music world today is far different than it’s ever been. It’s certainly much different than the ‘60s and ‘70s when some of us started in Southern Gospel music. Today, in a typical recording process, the singers will sing multiple passes and the mix engineer will stack those vocals on top of each other. When you do that, a quartet can sound like a choir. ... But when we want to listen to quartet music, we want to hear four singers singing four parts. That is a quartet. That’s what we do both in our recordings as well as our live music. When you hear our recordings, you will hear four singers, no stacks. ... Folks tell us they appreciate that. No smoke and mirrors; just us, warts and all.” Join the Old Time Preachers Quartet as they sing on, “Long Live Old Time Religion.”
