News: “Come, Thou Fount” Featured on Mouth Off Podcast

January 30th, 2012

The Beltones and my arrangement of “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing” were featured in the “Praiseappella” segment of the a cappella podcast, Mouth Off. Speaking of “Come Thou Fount,” here’s what Dave Brown had to say:

“Here we have the Beltones, this brand new group, really showing the depth of their musical reach…Patrick Dunnevant, who was one of the co-founders, actually sings the lead here and he did the arrangement, which I was really impressed by. He wasn’t afraid to do some chord substitutions and play with the texture of it while still retaining, I think, the nobility of the original hymn…I’ve sung this song probably a hundred times, and I never would have thought of that round. It just kind of surprised me…Here, the Beltones, a brand new group, show a lot of maturity.”
