Nashville, TN (December 19, 2018) â€“ Today, Gary Casto announces a major change to Tribute Quartet. Riley Harrison Clark, who has been with the group for almost 9 years, will be leaving the group to pursue a solo career at the end of December. The last two concerts to feature Riley will be on December 29 and 31.
The announcement comes on the heels of Riley’s debut solo release, Welcome To Me
For nearly a decade, the talented tenor vocalistÂ has traveled as part of the acclaimed Tribute Quartet, earning multiple GMA Dove Award nominations and numerous #1 songs. His tenure with Tribute has afforded him a platform to sing on stages across the country and around the world, an opportunity that Riley does not take for granted.
â€œGospel music would not know who Riley Harrison Clark was if it were not for Tribute Quartet,â€ shares Clark. â€œI am eternally grateful for Gary [Casto] taking a chance on me, as well as Josh [Singletary] and Anthony [Davis] for allowing me to share the stage with them night after night. It has been an unbelievable experience, and I know that big things lie ahead for them. However, the Lord has laid it on my heart that this is my time to step out and tell my story, and I am eager to do just that.â€
“To say that we have beenÂ blessed to have had Riley Harrison Clark as a member of our team would be a major understatement,”Â states Gary Casto. “It has been an honor over the years to watch Riley as well as the ministry grow to what they are today. As a family, we are sadÂ to see Riley leave, however, we are thrilled to witness the future the Lord has in store for him. We will be his biggest cheerleaders!”
Gus Gaches â€“ a veteran of Gospel music and the recording arts â€“ will fill the tenor vocalist position beginning January 2019.
Clarkâ€™s debut solo project, entitledÂ Welcome To Me, released this fall and includes songs that speak to Rileyâ€™s personal journey, as well as aim to inspire listeners regardless of background, age, or walk of life. Without the confines of a style or genre, the songs were carefully curated to communicate a message, and are presented in a way that is uniquely Riley Harrison Clark.
