Tribute rings in the holiday season with the release of their first Christmas recording
HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (Nov. 17, 2014) – The Tribute Quartet is excited to announce the release of their first Christmas project, “The Thought of Christmas,” for tomorrowTuesday, November 18, 2014.
Tribute – a male quartet comprised of group manager and lead singer Gary Casto, baritone singer and pianist Josh Singletary, tenor singer Riley Harrison Clark and bass singer Anthony Davis – released its debut project as a Daywind recording artist in August, “Journey of Hope.”
The group’s long-time producer – Roger Talley – was the architect for both “The Thought of Christmas” and “Journey of Hope.”
“I am truly excited about this Christmas project,” emphasizes Casto. “I can honestly say that this could be one of our best projects to date. Once again, teaming up with Roger Talley and working with the staff at Daywind Records has helped Tribute Quartet create a project that we can be proud of for many years to come.”
The group’s first Christmas recording is an 11-song project that includes timeless classics such as “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “Jesus, What a Wonderful Child,” “Come On, Ring Those Bells,” “Silent Night,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Mary Did You Know?”
“I had a great time working with Tribute on this new Christmas project,” explains Talley. “They sang better than I have ever heard them. This project sounds like the Christmas music that I have loved for years, and I am so proud to have been a part of it.”
Tribute joined the Daywind family earlier this year. The group has produced top-charting songs such as “Homecoming Day,” “Homesick Angel” and “Good News from Jerusalem,” a No. 1 song. Tribute’s latest radio release – “I Am a Soldier” – has risen to No. 49 on the Singing News Top 80 Chart for the month of December.
“We have been so excited about the release of ‘Journey of Hope,’ and now, Tribute has followed that up with yet another outstanding project,’” says Daywind president Ed Leonard. “The group continues to hold itself to such a high standard, and the exceptional quality of these top-notch recordings are evidence of that. The response to ‘Journey of Hope’ has been overwhelming so far, and Tribute fans – and the legions of people who love classic Christmas music – are going to adore this project as well.”
