T.L. Gathen is a gifted and talented producer/musician/songwriter/playright, whose music has begun to capture the hearts of many, who enjoy the smooth contemporary sounds of love ballads, jazzy instrumentals and sincere worship. Around the age of 10, Gathen was first introduced to music by his grandfather, who bought for the family, a small portable organ, on which he fondly remembers playing his first tune - "Silent Night". Although at that young age, sports and other school activities eventually took precedence over music, the psalmist seed that God had planted in this young man's life would soon emerge again. During his sophomore year in high school, Gathen begin to take music lessons and started playing as a backup musician at church. He now looks back and laughs as he thinks of the "Choir Day" concerts and evening programs where he only knew two songs well enough to play for the performances. However what at that time was only A and B selections, has now blossomed into a divinely appointed CD release. As an emerging producer/songwriter/artist, T.L.'s Debut CD 'A Songwriter's Heart' is the beginning of many heartfelt albums to come. The album features his Pastor and Co-Pastor -Micheal & Carol McKinnie, and T.L.'s group - Majestic Kingdom Melodies Ensemble. The group members include Jean Cole, Vickie Richardson, Minister Brian Doss, Evangelist JoAnn Hill, Andrea Travis, Jessie Jones and Lea Baker. Also included on the project are recording artists Edgar Fletcher, Brandy Taylor, Pastor Michael Hill, Garry Hodges, Paula Hollins and renowned saxophonist, Kenny Hollins. Native of Arkansas, T.L. now resides with his family in Memphis, TN and has musical roots in Chicago. Kingdom work from a songwriter/psalmist perspective continues to be his passion.
