Greater Vision’s Jon Epley is celebrating five years with the group. Jon is from Fordsville, KY. He began singing with his family when he was 2-years-old. Through the years he’s been with multiple Gospel Music groups and landed with Greater Vision in 2017.
“They say time flies when you’re having fun, and I know that’s true because I’ve had a lot of fun here and five years has flown by,” said Jon.
Jon said it all began with a text message from Gerald Wolfe on a sunday night asking for him to come to Gerald’s house to sing through some songs with him, Chris and Rodney, Gerald wanted to see how it sounded.
Jon recalled the days before he knew if he would become part of Greater Vision.
“Then he said, ‘what are you doing Wednesday? and I said ‘well, I can take the day off.’ And he said do that because if it goes good Tuesday night, we’ll go into the studio on Wednesday and record a new album,” said Jon.
Things went well and Jon went on to have that first recording date in the studio as they laid down the tracks for the group’s Still album.
Jon and his wife, Tiffany, reside in Johnson City, Tennessee, where they are members of Piney Flats First Baptist Church.
