I recently had the chance to catch up with Gold City Pianist Roy Webb.
Daniel: So how are things going with the new Gold City lineup? What projects do you have in the works?
Roy: Things are going GREAT with the new GC lineup-thanks for asking! Audiences everywhere are really enjoying themselves, and we are humbled by getting the opportunity to sing to so many wonderful people every week!
We are grateful that our crowds have been excited to see this new lineup and most of our concerts have had capacity or near-capacity crowds. God is really blessing us and we feel honored to be doing this for a living!
As far as new recordings go….we are working on several!
They are –
A Tribute To Doug Riley. This album contains some of the most popular songs that were written by Doug Riley and recorded by Gold City. Doug was such a great songwriter, and by recording this CD, we are keeping his talent and his memory alive. The guys sound great on this cd.
The CD I’m most excited about is our major release through New Haven Records. We are actually going into the studio on 4/27 &4/28 to cut tracks for this cd. It is being produced by Michael English and we are so fortunate to have his expertise on this recording. We have listened to HUNDREDS of songs and finally have a very short list of songs that we feel will make a difference in peoples lives. Right now, we feel people need hope more than anything. We believe that this new recording will change lives!!!! And that is the reason we do this!
We also have 2 other cds coming out very shorty…1 is an “Old Favorites” CD. Songs that we all enjoy listening to, just done in that Gold City style.
The other, is something I feel will be a BEST SELLER for us….(drum roll please….) Tim Riley is going to be doing a solo recording!!!!! When Danny and I approached Tim with this idea he said “Boys, I’ll do it, but I don’t think anyone will buy one!” I think he will be proven wrong. Very wrong, actually!
So, there you have it! That is what we are working on!
I do want to say a huge “Thank You” on behalf of Josh, Bruce, Danny, Tim and myself. The fans have been gracious and have supported us and nominated us for several things in the Singing News fan awards this year. We are humbled. We will continually strive to be the best we can be and promise to put out quality recordings and put all the energy we have into every live concert event. This music changes lives! We CANNOT WAIT to see you all at one of our concerts! God Bless!
