Franklin, TN (February 7th 2013) – Pathway Records, a division of Pathway Enterprises, is proud to announce Dove Award nicknominated Producer Nick Bruno will be joining the staff at Pathway.

With decades of performing and producing experience, Nick Bruno has produced many Gospel greats including: Squire Parsons, the Booth Brothers, The Kingsmen, and Quinton Mills.

Along with his experience in Christian music, Nick has also worked as music director for a few of the largest theatres in Branson, Missouri. During his time there he worked with Christy Lane, Anita Bryant, Ferlin Husky, the Texans, and many other Grand Ole Opry stars.

When asked what he feels the role of a producer is for artists, Nick responded, “Long before any major artist is born into the world of Gospel Music there is a producer behind the scenes finding the right music and arranging it so the talent of the artist is showcased. A good producer is hard to find, but a producer who considers his role as part of God’s plan to advance His kingdom is a rare gift from God indeed.”   Bill Traylor, of Pathway and Mansion Entertainment states, “Nick is a rare talent and a good friend.  Nick will continue to produce major artists outside of Pathway, such as the Booth Brothers and others, but his talent and experience for Pathway and our current and future artists is invaluable”.
