Dale & Cheryl Golden (EDIT, 8/3/11: Broken link removed.) married in 1983 and started performing together in 1995. They are based in Texas and perform most of their dates there. Dale and Cheryl alternate singing the lead and harmony parts; on several songs, they stack their voices on multiple parts for a fuller sound. Summer in My Soul is a collection of 12 original songs composed by Dale. Several of these songs, including “Marching into Canaanland” and “I Will Answer His Call,” are quite good—good enough that it wouldn’t be hard to imagine a major group picking them.
