Ball Brothers sign with Song Garden
Yesterday evening, the Ball Brothers sent out a press release announcing that they have signed their first major-label deal, an exclusive recording agreement with Song Garden Music. They will be working with producers Jason Webb and Darren Rust to produce their debut Song Garden CD, Breakthrough. The CD is scheduled to be released on July 7.
The Ball Brothers were introduced to Southern Gospel by touring as Ernie Haase & Signature Sound’s opening act; since that time, they have toured solo for several years. They are in the top ten nominees for Horizon Group in the 2009 Singing News Fan Awards.
Equally interesting to me is what this means for the Song Garden label. They got off to a fairly strong start, signing the Old Time Gospel Hour Quartet, the Chuck Wagon Gang, and a couple of other fairly well-known artists. But after Robbie Hiner and Nick Bruno, the two public faces of the label, left, the label went under the radar screen for several years. But during the last few months, the Chuck Wagon Gang has prepared to release their first label project in several years, and label has signed Roy Webb and the Ball Brothers. They’re no Daywind yet, but it looks like they’re solidly back on the map.
