Album Review: Miles Pike – Candid

I’ll be honest with you….over the past couple of years or so I’ve became disenchanted with Southern Gospel music as a whole.  Not sure the exact reason of this, perhaps it’s just a season of life to go through.  During this time I’ve been on a hiatus from listening to anything other than some old …

Album Review: Lifetime (Mark Trammell Quartet)

Since their last recording, the Mark Trammell Quartet has had changes at tenor (Eric Phillips re-joining to replace Joel Wood) and recently, at lead (Nick Trammell replacing mainstay Dustin Sweatman).  It was about time for one of gospel music’s best-sounding quartets to come through with a big recording, and with Lifetime, they have surely done that. …
