St. Catharines, Ontario (September 23, 2013) – The Torchmen Quartet from St. Catharines, Ontario have been nominated for two GMA Canada Covenant Awards: 2013 Group of the Year and 2013 Southern Gospel Album of the Year. The nominated recording, A New Perspective, was produced and mixed by The Torchmen’s Jon Hisey. The group is currently in their 44th year of ministry and has often appeared on the mainstage at the National Quartet Convention in Louisville Kentucky.

The Torchmen Quartet have become Canada’s premier Southern Gospel Quartet and have travelled across most of North America with their music.
