.."I have found that normally most Southern Gospel fans, myself included, are often unsure of checking out groups they’ve never heard of before. But I can assure you, especially if you like good quartet singing, The Sharps are right up your alley..."

- Fuson Findings


Hailing from Fort Payne Alabama, The Sharps have been presenting the Gospel in song for more than three decades. Father and son Andy and Ben Sharp are joined by Mike Leath and Mike ’Smitty’ Smith to form the dynamic quartet. With over twenty recordings dating back to 1988, The Sharps are no stranger to Gospel music. However, their recent momentum has been honored with several accolades, including Hall of Fame nominations and seven consecutive charting radio singles on the Singing News Top 80 charts. Their most recent release, Instrument of Peace, featured multiple Southern Gospel radio charting singles and award nominations, including “Standing In The Storm,” and “The Joy He’s Given Me.” The Sharps have been featured artists on WATC 57 Atlanta TV, Dollywood and the National Quartet Convention. In late 2019, The Sharps were signed to Penn Street Records, a division of Main Street Music & Entertainment, and have a brand new project entitled, “One Day,” slated for a March 2020 release.
