#&34;When They Ring Those Golden Bells#&34; is an old hymn written in 1887 by Dion De Marbelle which has withstood the test of time, remaining relevant even today. Emmylou Harris put this song on her 1987 record #&34;Angel Band” almost 120 years after it was written and now Drew has taken the song and made it his own with his unique voice and incredible arrangement. Drew is a passionate man; this quote taken directly from him sets the tone for his performance. #&34;I love music. I love hearing songs that are intelligent, thought provoking, and honest. They give me hope, and those who wrote them inspire me.”

The roots of Southern Gospel reach back to a time when singing together was a way of life. People would come from miles around to join in song, and be a part of something that was bigger than each individual could ever be on their own. It was a real community of both Faith and music.

As an homage to that community we wanted to create a modern take on traditional Southern Gospel heritage. We asked musicians from a variety of genres, styles and bands to come together for a Revival of Southern Gospel Music.

The recordings are available to watch below and are for sale on iTunes and Google Play starting. All songs were recorded live in single takes with no overdubs and all heart. We hope you love them.
