Red Hen Recording Artist Michael Lee

Red Hen Recording Artist Michael Lee

Red Hen Christian Country artist, Michael Lee Stancil of Trion, Georgia, has come full circle back to his roots in gospel music. Upon hearing Michael Lee’s self-titled debut CD, Ed Leonard, President of Daywind/Red Hen/Vital Records, stated, “That’s a voice that could launch a label!” Red Hen A & R Director and Producer, Rick Schweinsberg adds, “I knew when we went into the recording studio with Michael Lee, we had something very special. At the end of the session, everyone involved was convinced that radio would love this project and the uniqueness of his voice.”

Michael Lee is presently preparing for the recording of a live video at Nashville’s renowned Bluebird Café. He is also making special appearances at radio stations to promote the CD.

Coming from a very musical family, Michael Lee began singing in church at the age of 14. In high school, he began performing country music in nightclubs, though he was too young to be served there. He started writing original material and in 2004, met another singer/songwriter forming the country duo “Buck and Duke.” The duo caught the attention of Grammy Award winning producer Wilbur C. Rimes, who helped them record their first project and presented them to major labels in Nashville. Warner Brothers executive Bob Saporitti supported them in recording a second project. With all that he had worked for within reach, Michael Lee sensed a void in his life. Something was missing.

He went to church with his wife and children when he was not on the road. Though he continued to perform in nightclubs, he felt a still small voice telling him that was not where he belonged. It became harder and harder to portray the image of someone else, when God was changing him on the inside. Finally, he knew he had to talk to his partner Duke and tell him that he could no longer live that lifestyle. Little did he know that God had already spoken to Duke as well. His partner surprised him by totally supporting his decision to leave the career they were building together and return to the music he had begun to sing at the age of 14. He now sings and speaks in churches and other venues everywhere, sharing what God has done for him, while using his rich country voice to win souls instead of fame.

"Legends of the Opry" - Bruce Hedrick

I was brought up on the “Mill Hill” in Mooresville, North Carolina. My father preached and my mother sang. We were always involved with the church. We went to tent meetings, revivals, prayer meetings and TV/Radios shows anywhere that we could worship God.

My Parents bought me a guitar when I was eight. We were in Statesville, North Carolina when we stopped by Woolworths. That old guitar cost $8.00. I couldn’t read music so I played by ear.

I was nine years old when I heard my mom call my name. She told me, “get in here now” so, I went running. Mom was sitting at the piano, she said, “Give me your little hands”. I put my hand in hers. I can remember her hands looked like they were on fire being so anointed by God. Mom prayed over me and my little hands that day. She showed me the keys G, C and D. She told me, “Son, it doesn’t matter if you are singing or playing for one person or a hundred of people; you sing and play with all of your heart. They will be blessed and God will bless you”. God stepped in that day.

My mom got sick when I was eleven. When I was twelve, I was trying to fill her shoes at church by playing the piano. She never gave up on me. Her faith in the Lord was so strong. She would say, “ Just trust in God, He will never fail you”. Mom left this world and entered into heaven when I was thirteen. I was lost without her. Not only was I without my mother, but she was also my best friend. As time passed, I started drifting away from my faith, and soon my dad and I had stopped talking.

I left home when I was fifteen, started working various jobs, I ended up in Statesville, N.C. working for a company called Cabinet Makers. I worked there for 20 years. It was enough to make a decent living for my family but there was still a void in my life. I never stopped talking to God. I knew his hand was on me but I was still hurting and felt unworthy of His love.

My wife, Lyndra just would not leave me alone. She kept pushing me to come to church with her. In 2007, I said that I would go. That is when my life took a turn. I went to Living Word Ministries in Statesville, NC. Hearing Pastor James Lewis preaching, I felt like God was speaking through Pastor James and looking straight at me. His sermon was on God’s grace, He said, “That we all fail and fall short of the Glory of God, but we still are his children; this is why He died on the cross. From that moment on my life changed.
I started going to nursing homes, assistant living centers, hospice, hospitals, churches, events, and social events to sing. Anywhere that would let me bring joy through music to someone else’s life.

I thank God for blessing me with the gift of music, my family for loving me and standing by me, my pastor, brothers and sisters at the Living Word Ministries for guiding me in the right direction and making my family and I a part of their family.

After winning 1st place in a Nashville songwriting and singing competion, I formed band in North Carolina called the "Cold Heart". After Cold Heart I was selected to be the male vocals for the "Legends of the Opry Tour"

Eastmen

Radio DJ's have responded in strong fashion to the latest release to radio by the Eastmen Quartet (EQ) and have driven the song "Naaman" to Number 1 for the month of October. The song "Naaman", tells the story of a biblical commander of the army who was a leper and was healed by following and obeying God. The song was penned by worship leader and song writer Paula Stefanovich who also wrote the hit song "Jerusalem" made popular by The Hoppers.

Based in Half Moon North Carolina the Eastmen Quartet was formed in June 2008. Their blend captures the pure essence and simplicity of the four-part harmony that blazed the trail for so many talented quartets in the past.

EQ recently finished their latest recording effort entitled, "Lifting Up the Cross." The project, produced by Prentice Tyndall at Quarter Note Studio, contains Thirteen powerful songs that are sure to speak to listeners.

EQ is a traditional quartet consisting of group members Mark Dayoc, Seth Howard, Jan Marshburn, and Jake Taylor. According to group members "EQ realizes their primary focus is of a divine nature. Simply put, with each opportunity, the group believes that with God's anointing, one word or one song might change a life forever. The group is humbled and honored to share in this calling. They commit their time and talents to using Southern Gospel Music to present the gospel of Jesus Christ."


Ed O’Neal & Dixie Melody Boys Name New Tenor

New tenorKinston, NC-Following an extensive national search, Ed O’ Neal is pleased to introduce Doug Pittman as the new tenor vocalist for The Dixie Melody Boys. Doug is 28 years old and originally hails from the small town of Eastman, GA. Doug garnered several awards in the classical world during his high school and college years, including First Prize in the 2008 National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) Vocal Competition. Doug has performed both nationally and internationally, including a tour of the United Kingdom in 2007. Additionally, he made is Carnegie Hall debut in 2010.

While his musical career spans more than a decade, he only began singing Southern Gospel Music in recent years; however, his roots are deeply tied to this particular musical genre. Doug grew up listening to Southern Gospel Music every weekend following his father, who played drums for several regional groups during the early 1990s. While pursuing a degree in music at Brewton-Parker College in Mt Vernon, GA, Doug followed in his father’s footsteps and formed a Gospel group with a few of his friends. He has sung with that group, Omega Quartet, since it’s inception in 2008 and was the remaining original member.

Long-time Dixie Melody Boys member and SGMA Hall of Fame member Ed O’Neal is thrilled to have Doug as a member of the popular quartet. “We auditioned several tremendous singers over the last few weeks,” O’Neal explains. “We even took a few out on the road with us. I had never met Doug, but the first song he sang during sound check gave me chill bumps all up and down my arms. When we sang that night, it was as if we had all been singing together for 20 years. He’s a fine young man, loves the Lord, and can SING! I knew by the end of the trip I had found my man. Josh Garner is a pro and Aaron Dishman just thrills me with how he has matured as a singer and a communicator in such a short time. When we add Doug to that mix, I believe this is one of the strongest line-ups I’ve ever had with The Dixie Melody Boys. I am very excited about what I believe God has in store.”

Doug Pittman made his debut with The Dixie Melody Boys at the National Quartet Convention in Pigeon Forge, TN. Additional information regarding a complete touring schedule for The Dixie Melody Boys is available online at www.dixiemelodyboys.com.
