Derrick Selph Leaves Brian Free & Assurance

Brian Free & Assurance announced today on their Facebook page that Derrick Selph is stepping down as baritone vocalist (hat tip, Lauren).  The group’s post states that Derrick and his wife are expecting their second child, so he is leaving the road to be at home with his family.  Selph has actually had two tenures with the group, the first from 2003-2009, then after a year’s hiatus, he rejoined in 2010, so he has been the baritone for the group 9 of the last 10 years and has been on many of the group’s recent hits, including the iconic “Long As I Got King Jesus.”  I’ve always felt his finest performance was the song “Healed” from the Live In New York City album.  Best wishes to Derrick and his wife on the arrival of their new baby, and to Assurance as they begin searching for a new baritone.
