3rd Avenue Sound is the realization of a dream that started when I was a kid in the 80's, when I was recording songwriter demo's for my own songs. I spent 26 years on the road with gospel groups, as a writer, performer and producer. I've been fortunate to have had many songs recorded by some amazing artists. Several of those reached the Top 40 in the charts. Others went to the Top 10 on the Singing News National Chart.
Here's a list of a few artists who've recorded my songs:
- Gold City
- Dixie Echoes
- Karen Peck and New River
- Mark Trammel Quartet
- Canaan's Crossing
- New Ground
- Singing Ambassadors
Almost 40 years later, my passion for producing music is stronger than ever, and I do what I love in my own facility, designed with YOUR MUSIC in mind.
Gospel music is my first love; all styles, from Southern Gospel to CCM. We also record other types of music at 3rd Avenue. It's a love for the making great music that is the driving force behind everything we do.
