Mark Trammell announced today the formation of a new record label, Crimson Road Productions, via a press release emailed out today to the groups mailing list. The announcement means that The Mark Trammell Quartet will be leaving the artist roster of Daywind Records, whom Trammell has recorded with for close to two decades. In the press release Trammell stated, “In light of the ever changing status of our end of the recording industry and the specialized music interests we have been invited to be a part of. We feel it is time to yet again stretch our wings and accept the challenge of not only broadening our own horizons but also working toward helping others reach for their dreams. I have personally enjoyed almost two decades of being a part of the Daywind Family Of Artists and we leave them with nothing but thankfulness. After 40 years of being in the recording industry, I have some ideas of my own that I would like to try. Bottom line, we have peace in our hearts that now is the time to begin yet another new chapter in the multi-faceted life of this ministry. Mark, along with long time ministry friend and partner, Jeff Haney will begin the process of developing the framework of the new label effective January 2, 2014.
The Crimson Road labels first release will be the new MTQ project, entitled “Your Walk Talks“. The new project will be the first with tenor Dustin Black, and was produced by Trammell, Gerald Wolfe, and Jeff Collins. No release date for the project was given in the press release, but you can pre-order the cd for an itroductory price of $10.00 plus shipping here.
I had my first opportunity to hear the group with Black on tenor in November and I am looking forward to hearing what Black sounds like on the new material. To pre-order the new cd or for more information, visit http://www.marktrammellministries.com
