Goodlettsville, TN – One of Christian musicâ€™s leading booking agencies, The Harper Agency, has announced the signing of popular vocal group, The Talleys (pictured in attached jpg), to their talent roster. The announcement comes on the heels of yet another major change for The Talleys when they transitioned from a trio to a quartet in September with the addition ofÂ Brian Alvey. Alvey, who married multi-award winning group member, Lauren Talley, in June, made his official debut on stage with the family Labor Day weekend in Gatlinburg, TN. “Brian not only brings an impressive vocal ability to the group,â€ group manager, Roger Talley stated, â€œbut he adds a new excitement to the stage with his proficiency as a multi-talented musician. We love his testimony and his heart for ministry.”
The East Tennessee based musical family, consisting of the mother/father team of Roger and Debra Talley, as well as daughter, Lauren and now son-in-law, Brian, has enjoyed numerous honors and accolades over the years, including 10 Number one radio singles, making them one of Christian musicâ€™s most beloved families.
The Harper Agency is pleased to add The Talleys to their roster of fine artists, wich also includes numerous notable family groups.Â â€œBeing a family business,â€ Harper Agency representative, Jeff Harper comments, â€œwe understand the dynamics of working together to achieve a common goal.Â The Talleys, with their unique sound, are a perfect example of what happens when family blends music and ministry harmoniously.â€Â
Jeffâ€™s brother, Ed Harper shared those sentiments.â€œIâ€™ve known Roger and Debra for nearly 30 years, and of course, I love and admire Laurenâ€™s exceptional vocal ability. We are honored to have the opportunity to work with and represent such an outstanding family. We look forward to being a part of their future for many years.â€
Joining The Harper Agency marks a major change for the popular group, ending their long-time association with Fay Shedd and the Artist Direction Agency, who first began working with the senior Talleys in the early 1980s. â€œWe would like to express our appreciation to Fay Shedd for the many years of hard work and friendship, but we are excited about the opportunity to work with the Harper Agency. We have long respected Ed and Jeff Harper, and we look forward to a new season of ministry. We encourage and invite all of our promoter and pastor friends across the country to contact the Harper Agency to reserve your place on the Talleysâ€™ schedule.â€
