New Quartet: Canton Junction

October 07, 2011 By: Aaron Category: Canton Junction, SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music, Youtube

Hat tip goes to Daniel for this one: check out this clip of a new quartet that was just announced. The lineup is tenor Matt Hagee (pastor of Cornerstone Church), lead Aaron Crabb, baritone Michael Sykes, and bass Tim Duncan.


Tim Duncan had this to say on his Facebook page:

I am so excited to finally be able to tell you about the new quartet!! Canton Junction consists of Pastor Matt Hagee, Aaron Crabb, Michael Sykes and myself. These guys are great and I am so blessed to be a part of this amazing new group! Stay tuned for more information!!

No real word yet on whether this group is full-time or part-time, but I have a feeling that with Hagee’s pastorate, it will be part-time. The Youtube video¬†description also bills them as the “new Cornerstone Church quartet,” which further leads me to believe it’s a part-time deal. I’ve been surprised before, though.

Either way, these guys have a really good sound (a la the Ryan Seaton Quartet), so hopefully we’ll get a recording out of them at least.

    I am so happy to find Tim Duncan. He is the best bass singer in gospel music in my opinion. He also shows his love for God and his love for family.
    He not only is agreat singer but also a wonderful man. I am so proud he is with this quartet. I hope to see you all in Oklahoma someday soon. I love southern gospel music and going to concerts..
