NASHVILLE, TN, USA, September 5, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — Check out the made for television documentary on the life of James Marvell airing on Thursday September 8th at 7 PM CST.  His story moves from hits in the late 60s with the group “Mercy” that topped Billboard with Elvis, Sinatra and the Beatles to his current hit single “Summer Winds” on Colt Records written by Dennis DiChiaro and the 45 years in between. The story includes stints with the popular 70s duo The Country Cavaleers, trendsetters of the country outlaw movements and his days on the road. Marvell worked with Willie Nelson in Branson, Missouri and designed collector jewelry for Willie, Johnny Cash, Bill Monroe The Father Of Bluegrass and June Carter Cash. The special also covers James Marvell’s composition “Prophecy” written over 40 years ago but very timely for  today.

Dennis DiChiaro is an American Songwriter/Publisher who is delighted to have teamed up with recording artist James Marvell for the release of his new song “Summer Winds”.  An additional release is coming mid-November with James who is joined by Joanne Cash, Johnny Cash’s sister. Dennis is an esteemed member of The National Music Publishers Association.  He has been affiliated with BMI as a writer for 26 years and also has his publishing company Song of America, established in 1993.  Dennis composes 9 to 12 songs per year and cuts them in Nashville and at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals Alabama.

Gary S. Paxton and James Marvell

SGNScoops heard today that Gospel music songwriter,  Gary S. Paxton, has died.

Wikipedia gives the following tribute: Gary Sanford Paxton (born May 18, 1939 – July 16, 2016) is an American record producer, and a Grammy Award and Dove Award winning songwriter and recording artist.

James Marvell, Gospel artist, tells SGNScoops: “The composer of ‘He Was There All The Time’ passed away today. Gary S. Paxton was truly a musical visionary.

“I knew Gary since the early ’70’s and always hoped to record one of his great compositions. I plan to do that in the future, a song Gary Paxton himself pitched to me a few years back which I sang on the national TV Show ‘Spirit Of America’ filmed in Branson around 2006. I hope to record the song in his honor.”
SGNScoops extends their thoughts and prayers to the friends and family of Gary Paxton.
