The Old Paths Announce Changes

September 06, 2010 By: Aaron Category: SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music, The Old Paths

Early last week, The Old Paths announced in a newsletter that those attending their concerts this past weekend would be in for a big surprise. As of yesterday, the secret is out: The Old Paths are a quartet once again with the return of bass singer Brandon Barry.

Barry was with the group for several years before leaving in August 2008. The Old Paths temporarily sang with Trent Adams (now of the Dixie Echoes), but eventually opted to travel as a trio. Until now, Barry sang with the Stamps Quartet.

I always thought that Brandon was extremely underrated as a bass vocalist, and that while the group sounded good as a trio, the sound just wasn’t complete without a bass. The beauty of hiring back any singer is that the blend will still be there, even on newer material.

Look for videos of one of Brandon’s first concerts back with the Old Paths in the next few days.

Update: Here’s a video compilation of some songs from one of his first concerts after the return. Thanks, DinanaSN!
