MCM – Indie Music Artist(s) Interviews

An audio interview with Mark Dean at Music Charts Magazine - Your Home For MusicMark Dean grew up in the small town of Des Arc, Missouri about two hours south of St. Louis. Mark now calls Branson, Missouri his home. He has been playing and singing for many years and is influenced by Country, Southern Rock, Blues and Gospel music.

"My music and my life changed seven years ago when I had a heart attack and was sent to Missouri Baptist Hospital in St. Louis.  There they said I had congestive heart failure and that I had about four hours to live. The next day I was still alive and the doctors said I would probably live but not have any quality of life at all. They had me on a heart transplant list for 9 months but........ GOD had other plans…. It took over a year to get back on my feet. By God’s grace I got back on my feet and I have never looked back. I play music and sing for the Lord."

Mark is a member of The Branson Gospel Singer Songwriters Association. He sings at several local nursing homes, revivals, homecomings, and church services. Mark has had the opportunity to sing at some prisons (even death row). He has traveled and worked in prison ministry with Joyce Meyer Ministries.

Mark says, "I pray every day for God to Bless me so I can be a Blessing to others through my music and Testimony." Eph:5.19: Sing and make music in your heart to The Lord.

A little bit about Mr. Josh Cobb

Josh Cobb with “Legacy Five Quartet”

Legacy Five is a Southern Gospel Quartet founded by former Cathedral Quartet members Roger Bennett and Scott Fowler after the owners of the Cathedral Quartet, Glen Payne and George Younce, decided to retire in 1999. Group members attribute their success to the changing face of gospel music and their willingness to adapt to it. As a result, the group has won numerous awards.

The group is co-owned by Scott Fowler and Debbie Bennett.

Legacy Five’s very first lineup consisted of tenor Josh Cobb (right), lead Scott Fowler, baritone Scott Howard, bass Glenn Dustin, and pianist Roger Bennett.  Bennett supplied a fifth vocal part in some songs, but when he sang, it was mainly for verses.  The group enjoyed great success with their first album release, Strong In The Strength. The group’s first Top 10 hit, “I Stand Redeemed”, featured young tenor Josh Cobb.  Cobb won the Horizon Individual award at NQC in 2000.


Josh Cobb with “Gold City Quartet”:

The Mississippi-based Christianairs were renamed Gold City in Dahlonega, Georgia at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve to begin the year 1980 with bass Dallas Gilliland, tenor Bob Oliver, lead singer Jerry Ritchie, and baritone Ken Trussell.  The group’s owner was initially Floyd Beck, who sold the quartet to Tim Riley, Ivan Parker, Brian Free, and Gary Jones.  Bass Tim Riley would replace Gilliland as the permanent bass singer in July of that same year. The group was an instant success in the industry, appearing on the main stage of the National Quartet Convention in October 1981.  By 1982, tenor Brian Free, lead Ivan Parker, and pianist Garry Jones had joined Riley to form a consistent nucleus that remained together until the end of 1993.  Mike LeFevre joined in 1985 to sing baritone, replacing Jerry Ritchie.

On April 28, 2009, tenor, Steve Ladd, announced that he would be leaving Gold City. On June 17, 2009, it was announced that Chris Cooper would be filling the tenor position.  It was announced in July 2009 that Josh Simpson would be leaving Gold City in August to go to college.  His temporary replacement was Curtis Broadway who played on Band of Gold dates.  Gold City Bus driver Jim Korn filled in on keys after the Band of Gold quit traveling with the group.  It was announced on August 11. 2009 that Aaron McCune had departed Gold City and a replacement was being sought.

Later in December, it was announced that Chris Cooper left Gold City and a replacement would be found by the end of Christmas break.  Over the Christmas break, it was announced that former Legacy Five tenor Josh Cobb would be joining the group, and former Ernie Haase & Signature Sound pianist Roy Webb would join as the pianist.  It was also announced that Tim Riley would be committed to full-time traveling with Gold City.


Current:  Josh Cobb with “The American Three”:

With select ingredients, a gourmet feast suitable for the most discerning taste, is the savory result.

Such is the musical recipe of three extraordinary singers; Josh Cobb, Sam Swerczek and Nathan Mickle.  In a delectable combination of uniquely American and singularly gifted vocalists, the three men have formed “The American Three”.

The vision of producer Vince Kavanaugh, The American Three is a group that strives to represent the entire nation in song with a spirit of hope and kindness.  A tremendous fan of the award winning Canadian Tenors, Kavanaugh set off to find three men in America who shared his vision.

Utilizing the tools of traditional networking and contemporary social media, Kavanaugh launched a search for three stellar talents who would become one voice.  After finding Josh, Sam and Nathan, an exhaustive search for material and months of rehearsals began.  The magic in the studio was undeniable as producer and artists heard and felt the titillating sense of hope and inspiration as each song was recorded.

With equal parts Broadway, Rat Pack, Pop, Great American Songbook and beloved classics, The American Three delivers a collection that will surely appease a broad range of musical tastes.  The album is reflective of the group’s live performance; steeped in the tradition of great vocalists and yet contemporary in production with brilliant onstage dynamics.

The debut project, One, includes eleven brilliantly arranged tunes, including the patriotic single, “We Are America (The Toast).”
