A Christian vocal trio known as The Greatest Gift decided to do an album of material penned by bandleader Wayne Paterson. Unhappy with previous efforts recorded at studios located in Nashville, New York and Los Angeles he searched for a new studio that could bring the magic he knew existed to his work.
He began sending piano/vocal demos to producer Bill Watson of Nashville Trax in March of 2015 and was ecstatic with the results. With Watson arranging and producing the music tracks, then sending them to The Greatest Gift where they add vocals and mix at a local studio, they have finished the first album, Come Into His Presence, and have nearly completed a second.
The Greatest Gift is also using the mixed and mastered tracks to perform live and even sing to the tracks in Christian songwriting and performance contests. They took first place in the local, regional and state competitions and are scheduled to compete in the national finals in Tennessee this coming spring.
The Greatest Gift is reporting brisk sales at churches and other live concert performances, helping them recoup their investment plus help fund the next CD. They’ve also been able to secure an entertainment lawyer based in Nashville to help them pursue national distribution.
