Malaco Music Group is proud to announce the Malaco Records debut full length CD release of The Canton Spirituals, “Keep Knocking” on December 3, 2013.

The Canton Spirituals has an unique sound like no other in the history of Quartet Gospel music. With their smooth but powerful harmonies, this quartet pioneered an urban sound that mixed R&B style with Traditional Gospel, Imported From Mississippi. Founded in the mid 1940’s by Harvey Watkins, Sr, The Canton Spirituals, now led by Harvey Watkins, Jr are still considered as one of the undisputed Kings of Quartet Gospel music today. Their recording career is highly decorated with two (2) Grammy Nominations, nine (9) Stellar Awards Nominations, four (4) Dove Nominations, Soul Train Awards Nominations and (2) Gold Records.

The debut single & title track, “Keep Knocking” continues The Canton Spirituals signature sound with it foot stomping, bass thumping, knee slapping, down home infectious groove. First listen, and your body begins to involuntary juke.

The full length “Keep Knocking”, produced by award winning songwriter / producer Stan Jones, (Marvin Sapp, Trin-I-Tee 5:7, Brian Courtney Wilson) and producer of their successful previous release on RCA Inspiration (formally Verity), “Driven,” promises to be their most successful release to date.

There is an extremely high pinned up demand in the marketplace for new music from The Canton Spirituals and “Keep Knocking” should be just the thing to satisfy.
