Biography of Harold Massey Versatile in all forms of music from country to gospel, Harold Massey’s roots are holding strong in his native North Carolina. But from these roots have grown a career that has taken him across the country and back many times. Best known for his work in gospel music, Harold is an accomplished musician and performer. Harold has never forgotten where he developed his talents. He started singing in church at age seven. Over the years, Harold honed his talents and now when Harold Massey sings, audiences know immediately they will be superbly blessed as well as entertained. When Harold was in the second grade, he came home and told his mother that everyone at school was taking piano lessons. Harold’s mother went straight out and bought a brand new piano for Harold to learn how to play. Harold says that playing the piano is one of the greatest gifts he has. “I am just in another world when I play,” he often says. Although Harold sometimes uses tracks, when he sings at a church or concert he always sits down and plays the piano. A real crowd pleaser... Harold  has had the privilege to sing in all parts of the country.  Although his roots are in gospel music, country music found a special place in his heart.  In 1994, Harold recorded an album in Nashville, Tennessee.  The session included some of the top musicians and singers in the music business.  The session was recorded at Bradley's Barn, with Jim Case as producer and Bobby Bradley (nephew of the great Owen Bradley) as the engineer.  One of the highlights of the session was meeting Owen Bradley who produced The Wilburn Brothers, Patsy Cline, Conway Twitty, Loretta Lynn and many other greats. Two of the songs recorded were written by Harold, "Constant Reminder" and "All That Really Matters". Both went to the Top 10 on the Independent Charts. This won Harold the Award for Album of The Year in 1996 from Airplay International. Harold has performed with many of the Grand Ole Opry stars including Kitty Wells, Johnny and Bobby Wright, Little Jimmy Dickens, Bill Anderson, and notable gospel artists such as The Happy Goodman Family, Jerry Goff, The Speer Family, The McKameys, The Hemphills, The Hoppers, and others. Harold is not only a gospel music artist, but promotes a dozen or more concerts per year featuring the very top gospel artists. His first single release, "I've Found A Better Way", written by Joel Hemphill, reached into the Top 40 in the Gospel Music Singing News. His self-penned release "Homecoming Time" was promoted to gospel radio by the Rick Hendrix Company in Nashville, TN. This song was received well by radio stations and gospel music fans all over the country. Just released to radio is a song that is very dear to Harold’s heart. In November 2011, Harold had surgery to remove a 67 pound tumor. Harold was afraid, but he is quick to tell you that God was there with him in that operating room and that God brought him through it all. The new, meaningful song was written by a good friend, Little David Wilkins, and is now being promoted to gospel radio by Rhonda Thompson. The title of the song is “I Stand the Tallest When I’m Down on My Knees”. Why not include Harold on your next concert, you'll be glad you did.
