Former pianist, arranger, co-owner and producer for SSQ
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great MERCY he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.. 1 Peter 1:3
Thank God for His Mercy! That same mercy spared the life of a small three-year-old child after being involved in a life threatening accident. As a direct result of that accident, Garry Jones’ parents became Christians and it changed the course of his life. Because of that significant MARK in Garry’s life, he is able to celebrate 25 years in the Gospel Music Industry.
Garry’s love of music and his desire to use his talents for Christ began to shine early on. He began playing the piano at the tender age of seven and playing professionally at the age of seventeen. Since then, Garry has toured with Grammy Award Winning Ricky Skaggs and worked with various artists in the Christian Music Industry. He is most recognized as the pianist, arranger, co-owner and producer for the talented gospel groups Gold City and Signature Sound Quartet. During his tenure, Gold City was awarded “Group of the Year” six consecutive years and Signature Sound Quartet was awarded “Horizon Group of the Year” for 2003. Garry was honored to be featured pianist for the “Old Friends Quartet” which included Gospel Legends Jake Hess and George Younce and was featured on the “Homecoming Friends Tour” with Bill Gaither.
Garry has also produced award winning albums and songs such as “Midnight Cry”, “If God Be For Us”, “For God So Loved”, “Stand By Me” and the Dove Award winning “There Rose A Lamb”. Garry has received an abundance of awards, been nominated for numerous Dove Awards, received rave reviews in Charisma magazine and inducted into the Alabama Hall of Fame. His television appearances have included The 700 Club, Acts Network, Trinity Broadcasting Network, Odyssey Channel, The Grand Ole Opry, John Hagee Ministries, and Charles Stanley’s In Touch Ministries.
It is with much enthusiasm that Garry has begun this wonderful new group, Mercy’s Mark Quartet. Garry’s enthusiasm is shared by MMQ members Anthony Facello, Josh Feemster and Chris West. This excitement is evident in the production of Mercy Mark’s debut project. With songs included by such notable writers Gerald Crabb, Kyla Rowland, Marty Funderburk and Joel Lindsey. This project is sure to be added to the favored productions of Garry Jones along with Gold City’s Award Winning Pillars of Faith and Signature Sound’s Stand By Me. Anthony Facello’s electrifying tenor voice is unmistakable and will certainly touch your heart in this recording. Josh Feemster’s powerful lead vocals will excite listeners and Chris West’s smooth bass voice will be admired for years to come. Completing the distinctive traditional sound of the quartet is Garry singing baritone.
Mercy’s Mark Quartet would love to share the message of Jesus Christ with you through song. A message of a man who carried the MARKS of MERCY so that we may be saved. Don’t miss an opportunity to spend a memorable evening with this group when they come to a city near you.
