Pine Cross Music was started in 2002 by songwriters Sydney and Cathy Coble as a venue to make their songs available to church music ministries. The Cobles have been writing gospel music together since the early 1970’s and have been privileged to have their songs recorded and published by many major Southern Gospel artists such as The Hoppers, McKameys, Inspirations Quartet and many others.
The Cobles served in their home church, Deep River Baptist in Coleridge, NC prior to entering the ministry full-time in 1980. Over the past thirty-two years, they have ministered churches in Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee and North Carolina. Sydney is currently the Minister of Music and Associate Pastor of Central Baptist Church in Kannapolis, NC where he has served since 1991 except for two years at Higher Ground Baptist in Kingsport, TN from 1999 until 2001 with Dr. Phil Hoskins. Under his leadership, the Central Baptist Choir has recorded thirteen live recordings. Cathy is also a very talented musician and singer and has played the piano or organ at the churches where the Cobles have served. She also enjoys working with children’s choirs.
Sydney and Cathy have conducted choir clinics and workshops for many church choirs in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. If you would like to schedule a clinic for your choir with the Cobles, please contact them at 704-436-6417 or send an email to schedule an event.
