The Tana Lonon Agency Welcomes Beyond The Ashes To Their Growing Roster Of Powerful Artists

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on April 2, 2013 – 1:50 pm -

Nashville, TN (April 2, 2013) – StowTown Records’ artist, Beyond The Ashes, is pleased to announce that they have beyondtheashesmaingroupphotoentered into an exclusive booking agreement with the Tana Lonon Agency. This GREAT news comes on the heels of the release of the group’s debut StowTown recording, LIVING IN THE MOMENT, and, is accompanied by tremendous radio success and other accomplishements occurring for the dynamic trio.

Group owner and tenor singer, Anthony Facello, expresses, “Over the the last seven years, I cannot explain what it has been like to see and experience the HAND of GOD moving in a ministry like He has moved in ours. We look back and KNOW that ONLY God could have made these plans and allowed what HE has allowed so that we can more effectively share the Gospel. Now, He’s opened the door for us to have even more opportunity and a GREAT team to help us to do that. Truly, that is all we want. Our desire is to be BUSY doing what GOD has called us to do. We are humbled and grateful, beyond words, to team with the Tana Lonon Agency to reach more precious people with the HOPE of Jesus. We thank Tana for her belief in us and we absolutely believe in her.”

“I have known Anthony for many years,” shares Tana Lonon (owner of the Tana Lonon Agency),” and I have watched him exemplify great Christian character and a true heart for ministry throughout those years. I knew he would do well when he formed his own group. I have ‘watched’ Beyond The Ashes ‘from afar’ for some time now, and to finally get to partner with them is a thrill! I am proud of this group and I believe their best days are ahead. I’m honored and excited to get to share in it all with them.”
