Nashville, TN (November 16, 2015) – In a press release on November 9, Butler Music Group (BMG) announced the signing of the Kramers to its artist management division. Les Butler, President of BMG states, “I have watched the Kramers from afar for a while now. The Kramers produce a radio show, perform over 200 dates across America annually and have hosted the RiverLife Riverboat Cruises for over twenty years. I live and breath Gospel music, but I was unaware of the many facets that make up the Kramers. And, if was unaware, I’m pretty sure the majority of the Gospel music fans, as well as the industry, was unaware as well. Well, that needs to change today. So, I am proud to introduce the Kramers to you.”
The Kramers feature D. Scott Kramer, his wife Rachel West Kramer, and their daughter Maria Kramer. This family brings much to the Gospel Music community. Scott co-hosts the Good News Music Radio show with Gaither personality Woody Wright which airs in over 32 states and 11 countries. Rachel West Kramer is an accomplished soprano vocalist with numerous solo projects to her list of accomplishments including her latest solo CD project arranged by David T. Clydesdale titled, Majestic Glory! She has performed at large events across the nation including the National Prayer Breakfast with President George W. and First Lady Laura Bush.
Although she has been singing her whole life, Scott and Rachel’s Daughter Maria has only been singing with the group a few years, but has already appeared on stage with artists such as Larry Gatlin, Russ Taft, Tanya Goodman Sykes and many more. As well as being talented vocalists, the Kramers are also a multi-instrumental group and they use those abilities in their performances. Traveling with The Kramers is their son, Weston. At age two, he was diagnosed as having autism. The Kramer family is grateful for his special life and the unique ways in which the LORD uses Weston through their lives and ministry.
Gaither personality Woody Wright states, “Scott Kramer and I co-host Good News Music Radio. He produces our program and is a fine musician and worship leader. Scott’s wife, Rachel West Kramer, is a most phenomenal soprano with an incredible heart for ministry. Their daughter, Maria Kramer, is a hyper-talented, bright light on the Gospel music horizon, and their son Weston brings joy to every occasion. The family harmonizes their individual giftings to form a powerful musical experience. Their sincere dedication to the mission of spreading the Gospel makes them even more endearing. You will love them too! Great family, great music, great people, great friends!”
The Kramers are currently in the studio working on a new album that will feature classic songs and favorites adding their unique touch to each song. The album is being co-produced by Grammy nominated producerDavid Staton who states, “I’ve always believed that the mark of a real artist was something that makes them unique. The Kramers are unique and it would be a shame fans didn’t get to know this great family. Their sound is not the only thing that makes their family unique. Their love for each other is evidence of their love for the God for whom they sing. They have been able to overcome incredible obstacles and use this to relate to people inside and outside of the church. As a producer, I love working with great talent and as a minister, I love working with people who truly have a heart for people and for God! I was blessed to do both while working with the Kramers.” The new album is scheduled to be released in early 2016.
“The Kramers are soon to be a household name to the fans of Gospel music and I am honored to be working with them,” added Les Butler. Butler Music Group encourages fans of Gospel music to follow the Kramers through their website at www.thekramersmusic.com and through Butler Music Group at www.butlermusicgroup.com .
