Youtube Spotlight: Gold City with Thomas Nalley (August 28, 2015)

August 31, 2015 By: Aaron Category: First Look, Gold City, SG Artists, SG Music, Youtube

This past Friday, PromisedLand Quartet (the group for which I sing baritone) and Gold City did a concert in Woodstock, VA, and new GC tenor Thomas Nalley was present. While I wasn’t able to get our portion of the concert taped, you know I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get a new lineup on camera! Be sure to click through and read the whole post to see all the videos.

Thomas was on his third night with Gold City.

First Look: LeFevre Quartet & More

January 17, 2013 By: Aaron Category: First Look, LeFevre Quartet, SG Artists, SG Music, Youtube

The LeFevre Quartet entered the new year with two new additions: tenor Thomas Nalley, formerly of Providence Quartet, and bass Randy Byrd from the Blackwood Brothers and Anchormen. DinanaSN has three new videos that spotlight the new members:

It’s striking how well the LeFevre Quartet has gelled in a short time. If they are considering re-cutting tenor and bass vocals on their latest release, But For The Cross, this lineup would pull it off well; the first clip, which is a track from that project, makes a good case for doing so. Regardless, I am looking forward to hearing music from this assembly of vocalists for (hopefully) quite a while!

The second has been out there for several months, but was pointed out to me last night. Jackie Lamb, former tenor for Heirline, has a new trio called Mercy’s Bridge. They have a Youtube video hightlighting selections from their debut project:

Thomas Nalley Joins LeFevre Quartet

By way of announcement from his Facebook page, the news has hit that the LeFevre Quartet is welcoming Thomas Nalley into the tenor position for the group after the departure of Harold Reed. Nalley has spent the past two years as tenor for Providence Quartet, a group featured as a showcase winner on main stage at NQC 2012, and his first date with the group will be this Saturday.

In a recent conversation with a friend, we got on the subject of Providence Quartet, and Thomas Nalley in particular. Some video clips were sent back and forth, and I wondered why we haven’t heard more from this guy before. I enjoyed the fact that he seems to know his limits, resulting in less “forced” sounding tones. Look for Nalley to turn some heads with this group, especially once the group can solidify and carry on with a new bass singer (no word on a pick for that spot yet).

Here’s some clips of Nalley with his former group. Included is their NQC appearance:
