Written by Staff on November 18, 2015 – 10:29 am -

The Kramers at Creekside 2014

The Kramers at Creekside 2014

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 and through Butler Music Group at .

unnamed (1)(Nashville, TN) February 24, 2015 – Rachel West Kramer, known for her exceptional vocal expertise, has teamed up with GRAMMY® and Dove award winner, David T. Clydesdale to record her new project, Majestic Glory, available now.
The release has already caught the attention of listeners and reviewers alike. Timothy Yap – – comments: “Rachel West Kramer has a penetrating soprano that has the ability to soar to the heights of Mt. Everest and camp there for an extended stay. But it’s not just about vocal volume and heights. Even in her softer cadences, she has the ability to get beneath the skin of her notes and bring out raw emotions that we never thought existed. In short, Kramer is the singer’s singer. If you are into vocalists who can sing (ala Celine Dion or Whitney Houston) and who are not afraid to shatter some glasses along the way, Kramer is simply sublime.”
The ten-song release features beloved compositions of the Christian faith “Christ Arose The Victor,” “I Walked Today Where Jesus Walked,” “The Holy City,” along with classic hymns “It Is Well With My Soul,” “The Lord’s Prayer,” among others including an extremely stirring version of “How Great Thou Art.”
“Rachel was such a joy to work with – maybe work isn’t the right word,” David Clydesdale commented. “Rachel is an inspiration and spiritually concerned to communicate with her listeners God’s truths. I don’t remember working with an artist before who cried during the recording of the orchestra. This was her dream, and it was happening and she was so gracious and thankful God had given her this moment. I KNOW you will be blessed, as I was!”
Rachel shares, “The idea for this album came while touring the Holy Land. It was my third tour there, but the first tour for most everyone else in our group. While making our way up to Jerusalem, as is tradition, everyone began singing the song, ‘The Holy City.’ There is rarely a dry eye when you experience this. I felt as if God said specifically to me, ‘I want you to make music which tells My story and shows people the way to The Holy City (Heaven). The joys have been innumerable as we worked on this album. Working with David Clydesdale and his magnificent arrangements was a tremendous privilege. We have prayed our LORD will bless many lives through this powerful collection of songs.”
Majestic Glory, produced by D. Scott Kramer for Electric Station Records, is available worldwide on iTunes, in select Christian retail stores and online
Rachel West Kramer is a Christian Vocal Artist and Speaker. Rachel sings and speaks throughout the United States for various concerts, conferences, prayer breakfasts and women’s events. She has recorded five full-length projects. Together with her husband, Scott and daughter Maria, they travel and share God’s love and salvation through their family’s music group, The Kramers.  Additionally for 20 years now, they host the popular RiverLife Gospel Music Cruises aboard the Spirit of Peoria Riverboat along Peoria’s beautiful riverfront.  Each year, they host the Real Life: Real Joy Women’s Day of Renewal, the Good News Music Radio Program & Concert Series as well as the annual Christmas Celebration Concert Series. Closest to their hearts are their two children, Maria (18) and Weston (16). Scott & Rachel are thankful for the gift of their son, Weston, who was diagnosed as having autism when he was two years old. The LORD has continued to bring much healing and progress in Weston’s special life. As a wife, mother, friend and Christian artist, Rachel possesses a genuine love and compassion for others as she communicates so powerfully through song and spoken words. Her heart for the LORD and her steadfast walk with Him is evident as she proclaims His love and truth not only in her music but also in her everyday life.
Majestic Glory Track Listing:
  1. Christ Arose The Victor
  2. Morning Star
