Today, we are going to go "behind the songs" with Anthony Davis, Bass singer for Tribute Quartet (and a very excellent one I might add!). Before we get started I want to share a little bit about Tribute Quartet. I will also go on to say that all of the members have just been nominated (in their respective categories) as one of the Top 10 nominees for the 2015 Singing News Fan Awards... I'll just let that speak for itself.
"In just seven years, nationally known recording artist Tribute has become one of the country’s most dynamic and beloved male quartets in all of gospel music. Gary Casto, Josh Singletary, Riley Harrison Clark, and Anthony Davis have proven to possess the winning combination of musical talent, warm and engaging personalities, and a focus that has kept them on the path to continued success since their inception in 2006. In an ever-changing musical climate, Tribute has remained steadfast in their goal to make great music that is both timely and relevant to the current musical scene and their loyal fan base while never wavering from their God-called mission to share Jesus with everyone with whom they come in contact. With a career that has already spanned the U.S., as well as several foreign countries, Tribute’s popularity continues to grow. The men of this quartet attribute that first and foremost to the favor of God on their lives and ministry, as well as their many fans and friends who continue to help grow this ministry one friend at a time. With several industry awards and chart-topping songs to their credit, Tribute’s music continues to bless and inspire their many supporters as well as regularly garner the attention of new fans. Each man in this group is excited about the future of this quartet–a future in which fans, peers, and industry insiders agree has only more great things in store for this group known as Tribute."
- Tell us a little bit about yourself. "Anthony Davis, bass singer for Tribute Quartet. I am the oldest of three with a younger brother (Erik) and a sister (Brandi). I joined Tribute 4 years ago January 14. Before doing so, I was a full time police officer with previous experience as a training officer and Drug-K9 handler."
- What is your favorite song/s? "I suppose with all the countless songs that have been written thru the years, I do not really have a "favorite" so to speak. The song that is my favorite changes based on where I am at in life, by what's going on, and what challenges I might be facing. I have always said that there is a song for everything in life that we face, and with the message that we sing, certainly this holds true. I believe that music is intertwined with our very soul, and can evoke emotions the are deep rooted with in us and that's why so many people enjoy music. I know that in my own life, I can listen to a song today that might have a great message, but not really speak to my heart at that time, but perhaps the next time I hear it, it hits me like a brick bat and I just think, "wow" this song was written just for me!"
Just wow... that is so true! Anthony has done an excellent job at putting this into words, don't you think? Go check out Tribute's website and see when they will be around you. I promise you... you will not regret it! You can also Like them on Facebook to stay up to date on all the current Tribute Quartet "news". Anthony, thank you so much for the chance to get to know a little bit more about you, it has been a pleasure. Readers, make sure you go see Tribute live, and check back next week as we go "Behind the Songs" with another artist!
