Depp Britt
...
Depp Britt, tenor and owner of the Cumberland Quartet, grew up singing in Scottsville, Kentucky.Born Holice Depp Britt Jr., Depp began singing and touring with his family's music group, the Scottsville Echoes, at the age of 3."I didn't know you did anything else on weekends," Depp laughs.
When he was 18, Depp landed a job at Opryland, performing as a singer/dancer in production shows such as Showboat, singing solos in the gospel sections.Four years later when Opryland formed a gospel quartet, Depp became one of the Cumberland Boys, appearing frequently on the Grand Ole Opry and on national television shows.With two top-10 singles and numerous top-40 singles, the group twice won Christian/Country Music Group of the Year and seven consecutive nominations for TNN Music City Group of the Year.After Opryland closed and several group members left to pursue other interests, Depp reorganized the group and later changed the name to the Cumberland Quartet.While on tour in 1999, the group received a call and an invitation to perform from Silver Dollar City, a relationship that led to a multi-year contract.
"It has been incredible to be here," Depp says, following a packed performance at Silver Dollar City."This is an awesome ministry, to be able to reach people who wouldn't come to your concerts, but as they stroll by and hear something, they are drawn in by God."Guests line up afterward to tell him how the music has touched their lives, and he responds with handshakes, words of encouragement and hugs.Although he had no plans to perform at a theme park again, "Never tell God what you're not going to do," he advises, laughing."I came here, I loved it, and I loved the people.Now being here is my peace and my joy."
In addition to singing and accompanying the group on piano, Depp is an accomplished songwriter, writing many of the group's songs and serving as a staff songwriter for Daywind Records.He has received numerous music award nominations, including a Dove Award nomination for gospel songwriting."Writing for me is quite an outlet - a personal thing between me and the Lord," an experience almost like prayer, he says.
