I grew up in a home that was centered around the Church and gospel music. My grandfather taught at the Stamps Baxter School of Music in the 1940’s. My parent’s were singing in gospel quartets before I was born. It was only natural that gospel music would be my life. As a young child I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior at a Church of God camp meeting in Craigsville , West Virginia .
I attended West Virginia University Institute of Technology and Anderson University in Anderson , Indiana . I finally received my degrees in Music Industry and Music Education at West Virginia in 1992. There I met my wife and partner Tammie Southall. Since then God has blessed our ministry together.
We have worked together since our marriage in 1992. Our journey has included starting several record labels and building two recording studios. We have accumulated 6 platinum records. Today we are privileged to not only work together in a recording company but to minister together on stage. We are excited at what God is doing in our lives and praise him for the opportunity to serve Him together.
