In the 1963, in the North Carolina Mountains, the Pine Ridge Boys began a journey that is still going strong today. Jim Stewart, Wayne Shuford, Charles Burke and Miles Cooper made it their mission to sing quartet gospel music and to do it right. 50 plus years later their mission is still the same if not more so.
Today, bass singer Larry Stewart (Jim Stewart’s son) now carries on the tradition with Wayne Shuford (original member) singing baritone. While Ivory Luke sings the tenor with Steven Craps handling the lead vocals.
The Pine Ridge Boys are known for a rich quartet sound that captivates an audience. Quartet arrangements that share the true heritage of southern gospel music are complimented by harmony that is considered a lost musical art-form. From an old convention song to a heart stirring gospel ballad, the Pine Ridge Boys stage gospel music with excitement, passion and a mission to reach people with a positive message in every song and appearance.
