Nashville, TN – Word Music has signed a long-term agreement with Lari Goss, as announced today by Mark Cabaniss, Senior Vice President and Manager of Word Music.

“For more than 30 years, Lari Goss has had an incredible influence on music for the church and beyond,” says Cabaniss. “Word Music has published countless arrangements from Lari over the years and it’s exciting to deepen our relationship with him. His love for the church paired with his musical gifts makes him a genuine and unique individual, and we are delighted to have him on our team!”

Goss echoes Cabaniss’ sentiment: “Signing a deal with Word Music is a bit like coming home. I’ve worked with Word for many years and I’m thrilled to become a more permanent partner with this church music leader. Never have I been more excited about writing choral music than I am now that I’m joining Word. We’re joining together to bring to the church exciting new music and ideas. It’s nice to be home again.”

Lari Goss is a 2009 Gospel Music Hall of Fame Inductee, a Grammy Award-winning producer and 15-time GMA Dove Award winner who is best known within the Christian music industry in the areas of music production, choral & orchestral arranging and keyboard artistry. He has produced critically acclaimed projects for artists such as The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, The Cathedrals, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Anthony Burger, Greater Vision, Christ Church, The Martins, Larnelle Harris, Phil Driscoll, The Gaither Vocal Band, Janet Paschal and many others.

Along with Goss' impressive list of production credits, Goss is respected in both mainstream and Christian music circles for his signature orchestral arrangements. He has orchestrated music for the industry giants Warner Bros., Capitol, RCA, and Columbia as well as the artists Glen Campbell, Ray Price, B.J. Thomas and the Atlanta Rhythm Section.
