Old Paths Looking For A Bass Singer

August 19, 2008 By: Aaron Category: SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music, The Old Paths

Yesterday, on the SN forums, it was posted by user accent that bass singer Brandon Berry had left the group. Today, tenor Jeremy Peace confirmed the news:

Consistency plays such a major role in the success of any group, and can be very upsetting to the fans when a member change takes place. Now, I’m not in management position, so I’m not sure what the plans are as far as press releases and such, but I will say that Brandon is a great talent, and has a heart of gold. He was there for me several years back when I was fighting a battle of depression. He was a friend when I needed someone to just listen. He may shoot me for this, but I’m gonna spill the beans for him…. he and his wife, Christine are expecting their second child. They just found out a week ago. Please pray for Brandon and his family as they grow in the Lord, and as a family. As for the Old Paths, our success has been seeing countless people come to know Jesus, and to witness the hurt and rejected come to realize that there is a new chapter for them. For us, it’s not just singing good ‘ole gospel songs from the red-back hymnal to bring a smile to your face. Its a team of evangelists singing and preaching the gospel. Its not just churches and concert halls. Its going out into the world to reach the lost and bring them in.

It is always nice to garner the respect and friendship of those in the southern gospel music industry, but in all reality it could all fade away tomorrow, and for us, we want to count for our Saviour. He is still leading us, and providing for us.

If the Old Paths can be a part of an industry and progress within it, then that will allow us to grow nationally and be a vehicle for our music and message of Christ’s salvation. So don’t get me wrong…being one of the top quartets is great, but not our top priority.

As for any group….things change…it doesn’t mean the end, or a step back. I think you will be very suprised in the near future with our growth as a group, and a ministry.

So sit back and watch….we’re only getting started!

It’s nice to know that the Old Paths are all about the message and not the fame. That’s a great testimony for any group to have. I wish the Old Paths luck in finding a replacement, and I wish Brandon well with this new child he and his wife are expecting.
