New Group: Sounds of Jericho

February 28, 2013 By: Aaron Category: SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music, Sounds of Jericho

Sounds of JerichoI’m digging myself from the piles of schoolwork I’m under this semester to update this blog (finally!). I hope to be able to start updating a bit more regularly than I have been, starting with this announcement of a new group that may contain some familiar faces to some of you:

“We would like to announce the formation of a new male quartet, Sounds Of Jericho.  Sounds of Jericho founding members are Stacy Bragg, Stephen Sigmon, Ken Thomas, and Matt Tyler.  Stacy and Stephen are not strangers to Southern Gospel Music, many will remember them as also being founding members of the 2006 Singing News Horizon Group of the Year, The LeFevre Quartet.

Stacy is one of Gospel Music’s finest bass singers, having tenure with several notable groups including The Statesmen and The LeFevre Quartet.  Stephen spent almost 3 years as tenor with The LeFevre Quartet and prior to that was a member of a regional quartet, based in Georgia, for over 15 years.  These men have teamed up with some very talented singers in Ken Thomas and Matt Tyler.  Matt has over 18 years experience with the Peachland Quartet and Ken Thomas is a featured soloist at one of North Georgia’s largest churches, Blackshear Place Baptist Church.

“We are very excited about this new venture and we fully believe that God still has plans for us in the Southern Gospel Music Industry”, says Stephen Sigmon.  “We have recently released our inaugural project, entitled The Story Of His Grace, and look forward to sharing our Story of Grace in concerts around the Southeast.”

Sounds Of Jericho can be reached through their website, www.soundsofjericho.com, or through their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/SoundsOfJericho.”
