Music Veteran Releases ‘Unforgettable’ Covers
Home to a diverse collection of artists from every genre, Syntax Distribution expands yet again to partner with contemporary Christian music legend and comedian Mark Lowry as he releases Unforgettable Classics. The album features pop standards from the era of Frank Sinatra and Nat “King” Cole. Syntax gives these vinyl favorites a new life through digital distribution.
“Unforgettable Classics is a collection of songs I hope young and old listeners will keep singing and remembering, because they are great and because they are an irreplaceable part of American music history,” says Lowry.
Syntax CEO Tim Trudeau is excited to showcase a different side of Lowry. “There is nothing funny about this project—I mean that in a good way. It’s serious, and it’s seriously good. It’s refreshing to hear Lowry sing these truly unforgettable classics we all know and love,” Trudeau says. “It’s a well-produced, high quality title that you would expect from anything with Mark Lowry’s name on it.”
Lowry covers such classic tunes as “It Had to Be You”, “Fly Me to the Moon” and “Stardust”. Unforgettable Classics also features guest appearances by Charlotte Richie, The Booth Brothers, Bill Gaither, Michael English and more.
“I continue to be impressed with the caliber of artists and talent that we have the pleasure to work with,” Trudeau says. “My team and I are proud to add Mark Lowry to our growing list of clientele.”
“Great songs only get better with time,” Lowry says. “So let’s keep singing them, dancing to them and playing them in the background as we make memories with the people we care about.”
