Time Wont Wait Time Wont Wait

Marketing Highlights

Steve Gulley and New Pinnacle have hit the ground running since their first album in 2015. Their two previous albums have produced multiple hit #1 radio charted songs, including “Leaving CrazyTown”, “Aim High”, “Not Now”, and critically acclaimed album reviews.

Produced by Steve Gulley, TIME WON’T WAIT is the group’s third album and features the up-tempo and hard drivin’ single “Drowned In Sorrow” written by Steve Gulley and Tim Stafford. Gulley wrote or co-wrote 5 of the songs including the first single, and the title cut, "Time Won't Wait", which was both co-written with his chief writing partner, Tim Stafford of Blue Highway. Other key songs include the poignant ballad, "The Road Back To You", written by Grammy award winner, Carl Jackson. The hard-driving "I'm Alright", written by Jon Weisberger and Swedish musician/songwriter Christoffer Olsson, is also a standout. Gulley revisits his traditional country roots with his version of the Ronnie Milsap classic, "I Can Almost See Houston From Here". Also included is an amazing break - neck paced instrumental, "G-Force", written by the band's incredible mandolinist, Gary Robinson, Jr.

“This is our third recording project as a band and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. I think the songs complement each other perfectly and, in turn, show the diversity and maturity of the band itself. I feel this album shows how much we've grown as a group while still staying true to the things that help define our sound - emotion, drive and intensity. I can't wait for everyone to hear this new collection of music." – Steve Gulley S teve Gulley and New Pinnacle includes Steve Gulley (guitar, vocals) and Bryan Turner (bass, vocals), Gary Robinson, Jr. (mandolin), Matthew Cruby (banjo, vocals) and special guest Tim Crouch (Fiddle).  TIME WON’T WAIT builds on the band’s family heritage of strong roots in Bluegrass and Mountain Gospel and at the same time provides a new and fresh sound that further accents the Steve Gulley and New Pinnacle signature sound.

Bio

Steve had already won esteem for his lofty tenor voice and emotional delivery as an entertainer at Kentucky’s historic Renfro Valley well before he joined Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, which brought him to a wider but no less appreciative audience.

Steve was also a founding member of Mountain Heart where he recorded five highly acclaimed, award-winning projects while serving as the band’s lead vocalist followed by a five-year stint as a founding member and front man of the popular group, Grasstowne.

These days he is considered a stalwart of the very top echelon of lead and tenor singers in the bluegrass business as well as being a gifted songwriter and guitarist. He has been tapped as a harmony and featured vocalist on projects such as the widely praised Keith Whitley album, ”Sad Songs And Waltzes” and many other projects featuring Ronnie Bowman, Dan Tyminski, Tim Stafford, Dwight McCall, Dale Ann Bradley, Jeff Parker and country singer Ken Mellons just to name a few.

As a songwriter, he has been fortunate enough to have his songs recorded by many top groups including Blue Highway, Kenny & Amanda Smith, and Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver. In fact, the song, “Through The Window Of A Train,” which Steve co-wrote with Tim Stafford, was voted IBMA Song Of The Year for 2008. Steve has also earned multiple Male Vocalist of the Year nominations at SPBGMA.
