The Best Lineup that Never Was: Gold City
The “best lineup that never was” series continues with this installment on Gold City.
- Billy Hodges. Hodges’ voice is akin to Brian Free’s and Jay Parrack’s, and he is one of the first people that came to mind when I considered who to select for this lineup.
- Josh Feemster. When Feemster was with Mercy’s Mark, the group, under former pianist Garry Jones’ leadership, sang numerous Gold City songs. By doing this as he developed his style and defined himself in the eyes of fans, Feemster showed his abilities at this style of Gospel singing.
- Nick Trammell. Though his voice sounds more like his father Mark’s voice did during his early Cathedrals years than Mark’s Gold City-era fully matured voice, Nick Trammell can perform with the style and sound of a Gold City baritone.
- Jeff Chapman. Chapman can do a Riley-style bass so well that some people thought (or hoped) he would join Gold City after Bill Lawrence left. He elected to stay with the Kingdom Heirs, but he is arguably the best Tim Riley / Gold City-style bass on the road today.
