Classic Artists Records, LLC and the PINE RIDGE BOYS announce an exclusive partnership that covers recording, promotion and artist development. This partnership is an extension of friendships that have spanned over 30 years.
In the 1963, the Pine Ridge Boys began a journey that is still going strong today. Jim Stewart, Wayne Shuford, Charles Burke and Miles Cooper made it their mission to sing quartet gospel music and to do it right. 51 years later their mission is still the same, if not more so.
Today, bass singer Larry Stewart (Jim Stewart’s son) now carries on the tradition with Wayne Shuford (original member) singing baritone. While Ivory Luke sings the tenor with Duane Rizzo handling the lead vocals.
The Pine Ridge Boys are known for a rich quartet sound that captivates an audience. Quartet arrangements that share the true heritage of southern gospel music are complimented by harmony that is considered a lost musical art-form. From an old convention song to a heart stirring gospel ballad, the Pine Ridge Boys stage gospel music with excitement, passion and a mission to reach people with a positive message in every song and appearance.
A full-time touring music ministry, the Pine Ridge Boys is experiencing a renewed interest in their music. Once you attend a concert, you will truly know why the Pine Ridge Boys are STILL ENJOYING THE JOURNEY!
Pine Ridge Boys owner, Larry Stewart shares, “This is one relationship that I know is good for the Pine Ridge Boys, Classic Artists and gospel music. We are a true quartet that loves the classic quartet sound. Singing the old and new songs just makes for a great Pine Ridge Boys experience for gospel music fans. We have been friends with Charlie for over 30 years and are excited at the potential we have together to expand our music, the message and create a positive gospel music experience.”
Charlie Griffin says, “I am really excited at the opportunities we have together. The Pine Ridge Boys are truly a rare gem in southern gospel music. Pure class on stage and off, they are the real deal. The Pine Ridge has repackaged their STILL ENJOYING THE JOURNEY cd under the Classic Artists label. But, more importantly they are in the studio now with the talented producer and arranger Art Bain working on a new project for release in early 2015. It is going to be a great addition to gospel music enthusiasts everywhere.”
With Classic Artists Records, The Pine Ridge Boys will be more focused on building lasting relationships with gospel music fans, promoters, pastors and being available for media. There will be an increased emphasis on conventional, internet and pay on demand radio and TV. The Pine Ridge has an interactive website and look to be engaged with gospel music fans with various internet promotions and projects. The future is indeed bright for the Pine Ridge Boys and Classic Artists Records.
