Jordan’s Bridge has signed a recording contract with Mansion Entertainment. Pianist Joe Lane comments: “We are so thankful to have been able to get with a great record company like Mansion Entertainment. Phil and I had worked with Bill Traylor in the past and he was always been so good to the quartets we were in and a great Christian man. I never would’ve dreamed that a group that has been together a little over a year would have gotten a break like this. … We have had a great time and look forward to a long relationship with Mansion.”
Mansion President Bill Traylor adds, “Our paths with Jordan’s Bridge crossed due to a long friendship with Joe Lane and Phil Barker. After learning of this new group’s endeavors they were pursing, I was personally excited about the opportunity to work again with some old friends. As I anticipated, the sound, the blend and the extraordinary talent of these four men called Jordan’s Bridge, set them in the ranks of Southern Gospel’s best. I’m grateful for the association and expect that all who hear them on radio, see them on TV and experience them in concert will agree with me that Jordan’s Bridge is destined for success.”
John Mathis first met the group while engineering their Mansion debut. He said, “Right away their experience and knowledge of Southern Gospel Music was evident. That’s when I get excited for the artists I work with, when I see first hand that not only are they talented but they know the music they want to sing, they know the songs they want to share and they know who they are and how to present that. They have all the right elements to make some great strides this year.”
The group’s debut single is “All Who Call,” a song penned by Rodney Griffin. Griffin comments on the song: “I really believe the heart of God was shown when He had Paul to write in Romans: For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. I’m honored that Jordan’s Bridge is singing the song that I wrote after reading this scripture all those years.” The song was originally recorded by the Mark Trammell Trio in 2003, on their first project of new songs. It can be previewed on the group’s website, jordansbridge.com.
