Every musical genre has its artists who defy the norms of the average life span of a career. Whether it’s the Eagles in rock music or country’s mainstay, The Oak Ridge Boys, there are those who rise to legendary status and continue to make music that appeals to their generation while gathering new fans on a continual basis. Gold City is among those elite groups who continues to reach new audiences and consistently amass new fans who fall in love with their distinct sound as soon as they hear it.
Now into their 34th year, legendary bass vocalist, 2013 Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame Inductee, and multi-award-winning Tim Riley continues to anchor the group with his rich, deep, and clear bass voice. His son, Daniel Riley, bartione, has assumed the management role and leads the group onward into the future. He provides a smooth baritone vocal that blends perfectly with the other voices in the group, but also has the versatility to step out for a solo with power and soul. Lead vocalist Chip Pullen follows a long list of dynamic lead vocalist and takes a back seat to no one. Although the newest member to Gold City’s team, Chip has quickly gained fans with his commanding voice and musical delivery as well as his easy-going personality. Tenor Robert Fulton puts the top on the sound with his high clear tenor voice and sincere delivery of each song. Bryan Elliott accompanies the group with his talent and skill on the piano, providing those subtle yet effective musical enhancements for the group’s vocals–as well as shining center stage on instrumental solos.
Each member of Gold City is talented and dedicated to sharing the good news of the gospel through songs with encouraging and challenging lyrics, presented in an exciting performance on stage. Each man is committed to moving forward and taking Gold City even further than it has gone before. Remaining true to the heritage of the legacy of the past 30-plus years, Gold City continue to build on the great foundation that has already been established. In other words, there’s a lot more in store for Gold City fans old and new, so get ready–the future is now and the best is yet to come.
