Youtube Spotlight: Promise 2013

May 01, 2013 By: Aaron Category: Promise, SG Artists, SG Music, Youtube

It seems that Youtube is becoming ripe with videos to feature this week. Today’s feature comes to us from Promise, a relatively new trio that started back in 2011. Their debut release got a 5-star rating from this site. Since that time, the group has had several changes, and the lineup stands today at tenor TJ Evans, lead/baritone David Mann, and lead/baritone Matt Baker. Baker also plays piano on select songs. The videos are from Mann’s Youtube channel, and are taken from a recent concert that was broadcast on the Internet.

These seem to be a good representation of the group’s live program now; when I saw them last year, Baker had not yet joined and the entire program was done with tracks. With this new addition, they have transitioned to a mix of tracks and songs with live instrumentation, not unlike what you’d hear at a ¬†Greater Vision concert. Promise is a young group, and I’m glad to see them persevere through several changes in their brief history and solidify into a well-blended trio.
