Tanner Stahl Departs Soul’d Out Quartet

December 05, 2011 By: Aaron Category: SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music, Soul'd Out Quartet

After five years as baritone for the Soul’d Out Quartet, Tanner Stahl has announced via Facebook that he is leaving the group. From Tanner:

A couple of months ago, Ashley and I felt led to begin praying the Prayer of Jabez. Things started happening in our lives! We were determined, no matter what happened we were going to trust Him and stick to His plan. God started closing doors He wanted closed and opening doors that He wanted opened. It has been amazing to watch Him work in our lives! One of the doors He closed was Soul’d Out Quartet. The hardest part of this change in our life is saying goodbye to all of the many friends we have gotten to know and love over the last five years. We want to thank you for your love, support, and encouragement— it never went unnoticed and was always greatly appreciated! Wherever He leads, we will go—please continue to pray for us and we will continue to pray for you. God bless you all and Merry Christmas!

I have been a fan of Tanner’s for quite a while. He was present for some of the group’s best years and projects thus far and while it’s sad to see him go, I’m glad that he and his wife are following where God leads. Best of wishes to the Stahls!

As a tribute to him, here’s a video of one of my favorite features of his, and it happens to be one of my favorite songs: “There Is A Fountain.”

Be on the lookout for a press release from the group soon on the departure, as well as an announcement on the new baritone. I have a feeling that 2012 will be a big year for SOQT!

  1. Um, the Prayer of Jabez?? Ooookay.

    I’ll miss Tanner. I feel he was always an underrated baritone.

  2. Hey Aaron, will the group find a baritone and continue on or are they closing the doors totally? Just wondering…..

  3. Is this new singer coming from another group? If not why are they waiting so long to make an announcement?

  4. Olaneljonoisle says:

    An old college roommate had Soul’d Out at his church this last weekend. He was told by the current lead that he was moving to baritone. He also told my pastor friend who the replacement is. I was very surprised! I wonder why the move from a Hall of Fame group to an up and coming? I just pray that each group will be blessed and continue on for the Lord.
