New Speer Family Revives and Refreshes Iconic Songs on A Singing Heritage Debut Release Available Now
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 30, 2018) – The New Speer Family is proud to release their debut recording, A Singing Heritage,available now at www.newspeerfamily.com as well as digital outlets.
“Let the song go on,” was a phrase G.T. “Dad” Speer would say during a concert after stopping a song to testify about God’s goodness in his life. His frequent testimonies were a testament to his Christian faith. Now, for the first time since the Speers retirement in 1998, the signature songs of the Speer Family are once again being heard.

The son of Brock and Faye Speer, Brian, and his wife Allison, are joined by industry veteran Mike Allen and exciting newcomer, Ben Waites, to form the New Speer Family and the aptly titled project, “A Singing Heritage,” is their first release.

“When the Speers retired at the National Quartet Convention in 1998, it was a hard time for us because not only were the voices retiring, but I felt that the songs were going away, too,” says Brian. “For some time, Allison and I have been talking about how fun it would be to bring those songs back with a fresh sound, reviving them for those long time Speer Family fans and making them relevant to a new generation of listeners.”

“A Singing Heritage” features the iconic and time-tested songs from the legendary family, including: “Heaven’s Jubilee,” “He Is Mine and I Am His,” “Old Gospel Ship,” “The King is Coming,” and many more.
The Speer Family was formed in 1921 with G.T. “Dad” Speer, his wife Lena “Mom,” dad’s sister Pearl and her husband Logan Claborn. A Speer singing group travelled continually from that time until their retirement in 1998. In addition to family members, many “adopted” Speers were part of the group through the years.
Allison says, “I have always wanted to sing with a group. The thought of being a part of the New Speer Family is beyond my wildest dream. Our goal is to praise God with old Speer songs that still remain as classics. We are looking forward to having a blast with those who were touched by the original Speer Family. We’re so excited and honored to revive this music again!”

The New Speer Family is booked by Scott Caldwell at The Caldwell Agency, 615.436.0469,scott@caldwell.agency,www.caldwell.agency.

Introducing the New Speer Family

[Nashville, TN ] “Let the song go on,” was a phrase G.T. “Dad” Speer would say during a concert after stopping a song to testify about God’s goodness in his life. His frequent testimonies were a testament to his Christian faith. The great signature songs of the Speer Family will soon be heard once again. Brock & Faye’s son, Brian, and his wife Allison, will be joined by industry veteran Mike Allen and exciting newcomer, Ben Waites, to form the New Speer Family.
“When the Speers retired at the National Quartet Convention in 1998, it was a hard time for us because not only were the voices retiring, but I felt that the songs were going away, too. For some time, Allison and I have been talking about how fun it would be to bring those songs back with a fresh sound, reviving them for those long time Speer Family fans and making them relevant to a new generation of listeners,” says Brian.
Dates for 2018 are already being added. Allison says, “I have always wanted to sing with a group. The thought of being a part of the New Speer Family is beyond my wildest dream. Our goal is to praise God with old Speer songs that still remain as classics. We are looking forward to having a blast with those who were touched by the original Speer Family. Gordon Mote has already produced tracks for us and I think people will be thrilled with that they hear. We’re so excited and honored to revive this music again!”
