As a followup to Nate’s post on the picture of Daryl Williams with Monument, I emailed Daryl to ask for confirmation. He responded that he is performing with Monument for the rest of the year, and that in the down time for Monument, the Daryl Williams Trio would still be booking church dates. Thanks, Daryl, for the reply and information.
I think this has the potential to be a big boost for Monument. Having a songwriter of Daryl’s caliber in your group should have an immediate impact on the quality of your material. At least the SG material that is performed by the group, as they are doing a blend of secular/sacred music now. While Daryl is a fine, solid vocalist, I think his impact will be greater in the material than in the sound. I’m also glad to see that his trio will still be active, so that he will still be involved in a pure SG format. Congrats to Daryl and to Monument Quartet, on what I think will be a mutually beneficial relationship.
