Legacy Five have just announced that Josh Townsend will be leaving the group after being with them for the last four years. Townsend will be concentrating on the production side of music, though he is not closing the door to performing and making more music.
"Four years ago, God brought Josh Townsend to Legacy Five and he quickly became a treasured and valued member of the Legacy Five Team," the team reflects. "His gifted piano playing, powerful testimony and fun-loving spirit instantly ingratiated him to all of us. Seasons of life are just that...seasons, and seasons change. Josh believes the seasons in his life are changing."
Josh Townsend is equally grateful for his time spent with Legacy Five."'Traveling with Legacy Five over the last 4 years has given me enough incredible memories to last a lifetime. I believe that God is beginning a new season for me and changing my professional direction. For now, I would like to focus primarily on the production side of my music but still hop on a bus occasionally as opportunities to do so, arise."
Townsend began his ministry with The Old Paths Quartet at 15 years old and has played on the main stage at NQC every year since. He has had the privilege of playing for some of southern gospel's most acclaimed artists including; The Bowling Family, Pat Barker, The Erwins, Anthony Facello, 11th Hour, The LeFevre Quartet and currently serving with Legacy Five.
