Jay Parrack has always had a love for music. Since the days of hearing his father, Johnny, sing with the Kingsmen in the 1970's, Jay wanted to sing Gospel Music. The Lord allowed him to fulfill that lifelong dream as a leading tenor voice with the Gold City Quartet in some of the group's most progressive years. For over a decade (1994-2004), Jay teamed up with Tim Riley, Jonathon Wilburn and Mark Trammel to produce some of the group's most loved songs and cherished years. Jay was the featured voice of favorites such as God's Building a Church, In Time, On Time, Every Time, Hide Me Behind the Cross, and Are You Ready. Jay has been honored with several awards, including Tenor of the Year.
In 2004, Jay left Gold City and was hired as Minister of Music at Arbor Baptist Church in Fitzgerald, Georgia where he remained until moving to Anniston, Alabama as Minister of Music with Hill Crest Baptist Church. In November of 2019, Jay, with the support of his family, accepted the tenor position with The LeFevre Quartet from Atlanta, Georgia.

Will Lane discovered Southern Gospel when he was a young child going to concerts with his mother and father. This instilled in him a passion for the music, listening to such groups as The Cathedrals and The Statesmen. As Will grew older, he and his friends from his home church would attend concerts regularly as a teenager. He never missed a concert in his area that he was able to attend.
The opportunity came for Will to be able to live his dream when he began traveling full-time as bass vocalist for The Anchormen in May 2004. Now, as a member of The LeFevre Quartet, Will continues to thrill audiences across America with his smooth, rich bass tones. With over a decade and half of experience on the road, he strives to perfect his craft and remains dedicated to the call on his life.
Will feels that Southern Gospel Music is still a positive influence in people's lives. He is committed to helping to keep the best music in the world alive. Will makes his home near Salisbury, NC.
Bryan Elliott, the multi-talented pianist for the LeFevre Quartet, is a seasoned veteran of gospel music. Born December 19, 1985, he developed a love for music at an early age. By the time he was in 6th grade, he was opening for artists that a local promoter would bring into the area. It would be a conversation with legendary pianist Anthony Burger that would set the course for Bryan’s future, when Anthony suggested Bryan should attend the National Quartet Convention if he wanted to pursue gospel music as a full-time vocation. At age 15, Bryan did just that. He went to his first NQC in 2001 and tried out for the Anchormen while he was there. The following Monday, he came home from school and found out he had received a call saying the Anchormen wanted to hire him. With the promise to his mother that he would finish school via home school, his parents gave the blessing for him to begin traveling.
Later, Bryan left the Anchormen and subsequently became the pianist for the Perrys prior to joining Gold City in September 2010. Bryan left the road in 2018 intending to get a “normal” job and spend more time with his family. However, the call on his life was so strong that he began searching for a way to get back on the road. That way was Mike LeFevre. Bryan became the group’s full-time pianist in January 2020.
Bryan is thrilled to be back on the gospel music stage. He has enjoyed every single minute of being a part of gospel music and says he’s never met nicer people than those in the gospel genre. He considers it a blessing to be a part of the industry.
Two musicians Bryan greatly admires are Gordon Mote and Jason Webb. In addition to his piano prowess, Bryan also a great baritone vocalist.
Bryan, who makes his home in LaGrange, GA, says it’s incredible what God has done for him in allowing him to be a full-time musician. He knows God has given him the gift of music, and he is honored to once again be playing gospel music full-time, giving his talents back to the Lord each time he steps on stage.
As a child, Terry Stewart's parents instilled in him a love for Gospel music. Though not a singer or musician, he always dreamed of being able to travel and minister in some capacity. After graduating college, Terry spent 10 years in sales management. He met the LeFevres in 2013, and a friendship quickly formed. When the need arose for a office and road management, Mike LeFevre reached out to Terry. Terry's love for Christ, ministry, and dedicated work ethic were the admired attributes that brought him to the forefront for this position. In 2016, Terry and his wife Brandi relocated from Bonifay, Florida and now reside in Gainesville, Georgia.
