The Soul Seekers and Warryn Campell look to keep Gospel Quartet Music Alive. Do you think Quartet music is dying out?
The Soul Seekers are a group of hip, award-winning mainstream LA music producers on a mission to spread the good news “and help advance quartet music,” a genre that Campbell says is an often overlooked dying breed. Many gospel quartet pioneers have passed away in recent years and Campbell, a master bassist, says he feels obligated to continue the music that helped shaped his craft.
While Campbell and his colleagues hope that their attempt to revitalize quartet music translates into greater recognition and profitability for the genre as a whole. “I would love to see quartet music reach higher heights. We’d love to sell 100,000 units …”
Warryn produces one of the hottest acts in Gospel Mary Mary and is currently marries to Erica Atkins Campbell of Mary Mary. Campbell also produced “Can I Take You Out” by Luther Vandross, which was one of the late balladeer’s last hits.
Campbell said all of the gents co-produced Soul Seekers II, recorded live in 2007 at Love and Unity Church in Compton, CA. The first single, “It’s all God” features one of his mentors, Marvin Winans. Appealing to all ages, the album offers up-tempo cuts, along with some R&B flavored ballads and even expands their quartet base with the addition of a country number.
