Brentwood, TN (Mansion Entertainment) August 27, 2010 â€“ The Sonmen have signed a recording agreement with Manor House Music, a division of Mansion Entertainment. With this signing, the Sonmen become the newest member of the Manor House Music family of artists.
Many new quartets do not find themselves on the main stage of the National Quartet Convention within a year of their formation, but that defined the start of The Sonmen when they won the prestigious NQC Talent Competition in 1985 and performed on the main stage of NQC in recognition of their achievement. Subsequent radio success of their single, â€œKeep Looking Upâ€, further confirmed this quartetâ€™s potential by the Southern Gospel industry. After a break in the 1990â€™s, the Sonmen have been back on the road continuing the legacy of the classic quartet sound similar to that of The Cathedrals, The Stamps and The Statesmen. Group members Mike Botts (lead), Aaron Perkins (bass), Dale Boreing (tenor), Jeff Perkins (baritone & piano) and Les â€œBuzzâ€ Pilot (bass guitar) have found themselves performing with artists such as The Booth Brothers, The Nelons, Gold City, The Kingsmen, Karen Peck & New River, Jeff & Sheri Easter as well as making appearances on programs such as The Jim Bakker TV Show and The Branson Gospel Music Convention.Â
A release date for the new project and forthcoming debut radio single will be announced at a later date.
