Promise Trio disbands
Promise Trio announced yesterday that they are disbanding. Baritone Matt Baker will be embarking on a solo ministry; tenor T.J. Evans will be joining Jake Sammons and Kasey Kemp in the trio Declaration.
The group finds its roots in May 2010, when tenor Jacob Kitson, lead singer Joe Kitson, and baritone singer Jon Epley founded Statement of Faith. Later in 2010, Jon Epley left to join The Inspirations. In December 2010, he was replaced by David Mann. In May 2011, Jacob Kitson came off the road, and the name Statement of Faith retired with him. David Mann announced that he would carry the group forward with a new name, Promise. David Mann left earlier this year to rejoin the Blackwood Quartet, the group he was part of before joining Statement of Faith. T.J. Evans carried the group forward for several more months before this announcement.
