Full Sail is the Mark Trammell Quartet’s first major recording of new material with bass Randy Byrd and tenor Blake Buffin.  Father and son Mark and Nick Trammell continue to round out the vocal lineup, of course.  Full Sail is a typical MTQ mix of traditional quartet songs and orchestrated ballads, with five new (or …

Album Review: A New Look (Kingdom Heirs)

The end of 2014 and beginning of 2015 found the Kingdom Heirs in a state of flux with the departure of longtime owner, MC, and baritone Steve French.  I must admit as a big Kingdom Heirs fan, I wondered about what would happen with the group in the long term after such a significant change. …
