Nashville TN – New Haven Records has announced the release of the debut single from the soon-to-be-released new recording from popular, multi-award-winning quartet, Gold City. The upbeat, remake of the Squire Parsons’ penned song Help Is On The Way, originally recorded by Gold City during the 1980s, features the renown quartet delivering the classic four-part harmony that first made Gold City so popular four decades ago. The single is a preview to more great original, never before recorded, songs that will be featured on the upcoming recording set to be available in early 2024.
Since 1980, gospel music fans worldwide have embraced the trend-setting style of Gold City. In 2017, the Quartet was inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame, forever solidifying their place as the standard of excellence for gospel quartets.
Historically, Gold City has introduced listeners to such hits as I’m Not Giving Up, It’s Still The Cross, When I Get Carried Away, and their signature song, Midnight Cry. With ten #1 songs, multiple radio hits, and numerous industry accolades, this Dove Award-winning quartet has achieved legendary status. With over 60 Singing News Fan Awards to their credit, their career continues to be one that is celebrated, respected and relevant in today’s musical scene.
In recent years, under the leadership of Danny Riley, the group has continued to excel and carry on the rich heritage that was established by Danny’s father, Hall of Fame bass vocalist Tim Riley. Joining Danny in the present-day Gold City roster are three seasoned veterans who, like Danny, all grew up loving Gold City and hoping to one day sing in this stellar quartet. They bring with them a passion for Jesus and the classic quartet styling. Josh Feemster delivers the powerful lead vocal to the group, while Chris Jenkins carries the tenor part, as Jeff Chapman covers the bass vocals with a smoothness that he learned under the tutelage of long-time Gold City bass singer, Tim Riley. These four talented and gifted vocalists bring the classic Gold City sound to their brand new single, Help Is On The Way.
“Every person you see on the current Gold City stage is a longtime Gold City fan,” Danny Riley shares. “We all have our favorite songs the group has recorded down through the years. When we were listening to the older songs and talking about what songs we might add to our repertoire, this one stood out to all of us as having all the elements of what we want to deliver to our audiences. It’s upbeat, has a great message, and is fun to sing. Even though Gold City recorded it almost 40 years ago, it was never a single. So we decided to put it on our new upcoming recording. We hope people love hearing it as much as we love singing it.”
The new single and upcoming recording pairs Gold City with multi-talented arranger/producer, Gordon Mote and Michael Sykes. As Riley states, the arrangement, while fresh and progressive, holds firmly to the classic quartet style that has awarded Gold City such a following over the years. “Gordon and Michael were very instrumental in creating the new, updated arrangement. They are so talented and gifted. It was a joy working with them again. They have been long-time Gold City supporters, and we are thankful for their support through the years, just as we are thankful for the many Gold City followers who continue to love and support us.”
Continued support is expected as Gold City moves into the future, delivering hit songs with the class and professionalism that has always been unmistakably, Gold City. As the quartet moves to the beginning of a new year, once again they deliver a top-notch classic reminder of encouragement that regardless of the tough situations of this world, Help Is On The Way!
Help Is On The Way is available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon now and will be available December 1 via all streaming platforms.
