The Soul Pickers are a four piece
bluegrass-gospel band from Hazel Green, AL. The band's journey
began in September of 2003, when three friends followed the Lord's
leadership and formed the band. Since that time, the Soul Pickers
have done over 275 dates, including special church singings,
homecomings, and revivals. They have also had doors opened to places
where gospel music is not so highly regarded, like restaurants,
civic gatherings, family functions, music barns, festivals, as well
as numerous radio and television appearances.
Members of the band include Shane Norman (lead
vocals and mandolin), Wayne Clemons (tenor vocals and upright bass),
Daniel Wiseman (guitar), and Tyler Anderson (baritone vocals and
banjo). The band boasts of one the most versatile sounds in the
business, ranging from hard driving instrumentation and strong vocal
harmonies, to a smooth, soulful finesse.
In April 2007, the band signed with Blue Circle
Records. Their debut cd is entitled "The Beautiful River Of Life"
and is sure to be a favorite among listeners across the country.
