Beyond the Song: Riley Harrison Clark sings, “Glory to Glory”

Written by Staff on June 7, 2019 – 6:15 am -

Riley Harrison Clark. Beyond the Song. Glory to Glory

Riley Harrison Clark. Beyond the Song. Glory to Glory

Jantina de Haan Baksteen reached out to Riley Harrison Clark to go Beyond the Song into his new release, “Glory to Glory,” from his “Welcome to Me” album. We all know Riley from Tribute Quartet where he sang the lead. Members include Gary Casto, Josh Singletary, and Anthony Davis. Filling in the tenor part is Gus Gaches.

Riley Harrison Clark. Beyond the Song. Glory to GloryYou started your solo career in 2018 and introduced “Glory to Glory” to radio from your first solo album. Who wrote this song and why is it on this project?

Joel Lindsey, Jeff Bumgardner, and I wrote, “Glory To Glory.” I have always been inspired by Larnell Harris and his music, so when it came time to record an album of my own, I know I wanted to write a song that would stylistically be something like what he would record.

What made you pick this song as your first song to radio?

“Glory To Glory” is the opening for every one of my solo concerts. It is the opening of the album, so we simply felt it fitting to make it the first single off the project.

What does the message of the song mean to you?

Along with wanting to record something that felt inspired by the styles of Larnell, I also wanted to take a moment on the project to simply glorify God for all He is and all He has done. I believe we were able to capture both of these things.

Riley Harrison Clark. Beyond the Song. Glory to Glory

Riley Harrison Clark with Tribute Quartet

What is the message you want to share with your audience?

To answer this question as simple as possible I would say the most important thing I want to share is that there is hope. For whatever you may be going through and whatever may come your way there is always hope. You are not alone and never will be.

Can you tell what lies ahead for your solo ministry in the near future?

As an artist I have goals. Goals for my music, my voice, my future. However, I am always careful to not put a goal on my ministry other than to be where God has for me at every moment. I never want to put a cap on, for lack of better terms, my ministry. I feel the moment I start trying to control the future of my ministry is the moment it will start to stray from the greater things God has ahead.

I know you traveled a lot to foreign countries with Tribute Quartet. Where did you go?

Yes. While with the guys (Tribute) we were fortunate to travel all across the world; Northern Ireland, Scotland, Canada, Mexico, and most recently Tanzania, Africa where we were able to be involved with an organization we all feel privileged to support, Kids4School.

Riley Harrison Clark of Tribute

Is it on your wish list to travel out of the country as a solo artist?

I would love to continue to travel the world. It is my passion to share my music and God’s message to not only my country but others as well.

Is there something more you’d like to share?

Lastly, I want everyone to know that it is my heart’s desire to reach the lost and broken as well as to encourage others that are simply in need of being uplifted. I believe now is as good a time as any to pour all we have into showing the love, grace, mercy, and hope of Jesus out for all to see. I am honored to do this by sharing the ministry of Riley Harrison Clark with all those that will listen, whether it is down the street or all around the world.

Thanks so much for your time. As the SGNScoops team, we wish you God’s blessing for your ministry and family!

Tribute Quartet: Artists on a Mission

Written by Staff on September 1, 2017 – 8:59 am -

Tribute

Tribute

Southern Gospel Music is known as quartet music for its traditional four-men-and-a-piano set-up. Over the last few years, Southern Gospel has evolved into a popular form of music across the United States and overseas. There are only a few groups who live up to this customary Southern Gospel description.

The word tribute, when used as a noun, is defined by Dictionary.com as “a gift, testimonial, compliment, or the like, given as due or in acknowledgment of gratitude or esteem” (http://www.dictionary.com/browse/tribute, June 20, 2017). That is the perfect description of this group. When you meet the Tribute Quartet, you will understand how four voices and a piano can truly excite and energize your day on the radio or in person. They are a tribute to Southern Gospel Music, and their testimony and music is a gift to share.

Tribute

Tribute

Preparing the Gift

In 2005, the Wilburns (led by the husband/wife tandem of Jackie and Elaine Wilburn) decided to retire. However, a couple of the Wilburn group members were looking to sing on. And sing they did. In a short time, Wilburn members Gary Casto and Josh Singletary were enjoying presenting gospel music. Yet, Casto and Singletary had a vision of a quartet that was focused on music and ministry.

The veteran singers began a new vision without a name in December of 2006. Now, the group had signed to record with BSA World Records. Time had come to name the new group, but no one name had caught their attention.

Tribute“Glen Bates of BSA World Records made the suggestion of Tribute,” Singletary recalls. “There were no other names. That’s the one that was suggested. We all thought about it and loved it, so we stuck with it.”

From the first Tribute Quartet outing, the enthusiasm and energy caught the attention of Gospel Music lovers, young and old alike. Over the following months, the word began to spread about this new, young group that was energizing churches and concert stages in the Gospel Music world.

By 2008, Tribute Quartet began to receive some industry awards and a variety award nominations as well. In short, the Tribute Quartet was making its mark in brief time.

Tribute Quartet Grows!

Tribute Quartet

Nashville, TN- (April 15, 2016) Tribute Quartet is excited to announce that tenor Riley Harrison Clark and his wife Megan have a new baby girl.  Charlee Rae Clark was born yesterday surrounded by a host of family members, including two year old, big brother Colbin. Charlee has a head full of blonde hair and weighs 7 lbs., 9 oz. Megan and Charlee are both doing well.

 

“Mary, Did You Know” is a song that Tribute Quartet fans enjoy hearing Riley Clark perform.  But for the Clark family, this song has much more meaning.  Even when on the road, with the use of video technology, Riley is able to sing this song for Colbin as he falls asleep.  In addition to sharing the Gospel, Riley is attempting to share with his son that God has big plans.  And now, Riley is already singing songs to Charlee.

“Megan and I are grateful for every prayer whispered on our behalf.  It is daunting to think that God has given us the gift of two beautiful children.  Our Southern Gospel family is a large part of supporting us in bringing them up with knowledge of a loving Savior”, Riley Clark stated.

 

Gary Casto, Tribute Quartet’s leader said, “Tribute Quartet is family, all of us are thrilled to have precious Charlee join us.  She can be assured that with Josh Singletary, Anthony Davis and I as honorary uncles, will spoil her!”

Younger Perspective – Riley Harrison Clark

Written by Staff on September 2, 2014 – 12:51 pm -

Riley Harrison Clark

Riley Harrison Clark

 

By Erin Stevens

No matter where you grow up, what job you have, or what music you listen to, when God puts a calling on your life, nothing and no one can stand in your way. That is just the case with powerhouse tenor, Riley Harrison Clark of Tribute Quartet. Take a few moments to hear straight from this tenderhearted man of God. Take it away, Riley…

Erin: For the readers who don’t know your background, why don’t you tell about how you came to be Tribute’s tenor?

Riley: I’ve been singing since I was 12; at that age, I began vocal coaching with Steve Hurst. At 13, I attended his music school; it was there I met the Tribute guys. I had a few lessons with the guys and when Brian Alvey (their former tenor) came off the road, my name was brought to them. On a Wednesday I was on my face at 2:00am pouring my heart out to God, trying to plead with Him to move me forward in the area He was calling me. At 10:00am that same day, Gary Casto gave me a call and asked if I would be interested in joining Tribute. It was one of those God moments that, even if I wanted to say no, it would have been impossible. June 25th 2014 will be four years since I first sang with Tribute.

Erin: When you came into the industry, you were the consummate newbie. What were some key things that took a lot of getting used to?

Riley: 1. Sleeping in. Working back home, I was always up early. When I got on the bus, I quickly realized that everyone sleeps in. I’m still getting used to that, and generally with no success. 2. At first, when we would walk into events, I was taken back that I was not only in the same place with people I looked up to, but that I was actually doing the same thing.

Erin: While still being in that newlywed stage of life, and recently becoming a daddy, along with traveling full-time, how do you juggle all three roles?

riley harrison clarkRiley: It begins with constantly reminding yourself that God has called you at this time, for this season, to be where you are at because He wants to use you. It also takes an incredibly loving, supportive wife that understands the call of God, and wants her husband to be in the center of God’s will. Can I say that it’s easy? Not at all. There are times I want to stay home because of how I miss Megan and Colbin, but it goes back to the first point I made. I am called to sing, and I know I am where I am for a purpose. As for the little guy, it is rather tough to miss out on his everyday adventures; but thank goodness for technology that allows me to see him, even though I may be in a different state or country.

Erin: What is the most peculiar thing a fan has ever said to you?

Riley: (This is for you, Morgan Easter) One year during Singing In the Sun, a sweet lady walked up to me, and just said, “I really like your ears.” Surprising, since they were red and peeling from sunburn. Besides that, I didn’t realize ears were a feature that got much attention!

tribute cdErin: Favorite aspect of road life, and least favorite? (double whammy question – go.)

Riley: Favorite: waking up at Wal-Mart and being in a different part of the country every morning. Least favorite: waking up at Wal-Mart and being in a different part of the country every morning.

Erin: Which song do you sing each night that you consider your testimony and why?

Riley: Recently we put “God on the Mountain” on our Hit Replay Again album. If there is something I could say to anyone, it is that no matter what is going on, where you have been, where you are at, or where you are headed, God is always faithful. If you believe in what the word of God says, then find rest in the assurance that He will always be God, and that He will always be faithful.

Erin: A must-ask question among all Gospel singers: what’s your hands down, can’t live without, favorite food?

Riley: Hot dogs, pot roast and Ranch dressing. Anthony will make a pot roast on the bus, and there is no doubt that I will eat 70% of what is in that crock-pot. As for restaurants, hands down, IN-N-OUT BURGER.

Erin: How would you encourage those looking up to you as a role model in these crazy, mixed up days we are living in?

Riley: Get planted in the Word of God. Stay focused on what it says. Never think you are too small to be used by God. Do your best to know what it is that He wants with you and for your life. Don’t stop until you reach your goals and once you get there, never let the devil discourage you because it is God that called you. And if He has called you, then you are carrying out His plan, and that one needs to be carried out ’til the end.

Riley would also like me to add that he has made it thus far largely due to the guidance he has received from his parents. What an outstanding privilege and blessing to have such a strong support system within the family unit. Needless to say, the Clarks raised a great man to carry out the message of the Gospel. Thank you, Riley for sharing from your heart with the readers today. Until next month, Scoops fans…

And that’s my take on it.
