.."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. The quartet is comprised and owned by father and son, Andy and Ben Sharp and are joined by Mike Leath and Mike ‘Smitty’ Smith to form the dynamic quartet. In recent years, the group has experienced radio success with songs such as “Upon This Solid Rock,” “Standing In The Storm,” and “Joy He’s Given Me,” among others. 

The group has over 20 professional recordings dating back to 1988. However, their recent success has brought upon several awards, national recognition, 2 Hall of Fame nominations, and  7 consecutive charting radio singles in Singing News Top 80 charts. The group's latest studio album, Instrument of Peace, has featured the last 3 charting songs. The first single released "Standing in the Storm" received instant recognition, reigning 4 months inside the charts Top 80. The song was also nominated for SGN Scoops Diamond Awards for Sunrise Song of the Year 2018 and is currently a Top 5 Finalist. Their current single " The Joy He's Given Me" debuted at #31 of Top New Releases and charted at #54 in Top 80 for month of December 2019.
