Jeff Stice

Jeff Stice (May 30, 1960 – September 14, 2021)


Jeff Stice exhibited an interest in music as a child and began taking piano lessons at the age of eight. After playing for his father's group during his high school years, Stice enrolled at Western Kentucky University where he majored in piano performance.

Stice began his professional career playing piano with the Monitors Quartet in the early 1980s. In 1983, Stice joined the famous Blackwood Brothers where he traveled with the group's long-time baritone Cecil Blackwood and bass singer Ken Turner. After a couple of years, Stice moved on to the Nelons where he remained until 1990.

In 1990, Stice and popular tenor Danny Funderburk formed Perfect Heart with Dale Shipley, Mark Lanier, and Mike Bullock. The group's first single was a number one song, and Stice remained with the group until they disbanded in 1998.

In 1999, Stice joined the Kingdom Heirs where he traveled with tenor singer David Sutton and bass singer Eric Bennett. Three years later in 2002, those three men joined forces with father/son duo Clayton and Scotty Inman to form Integrity Quartet (later Triumphant Quartet). For the first few years, they performed mostly at the Louise Mandrell Theater in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, but later, they began touring full-time. Stice remained with Triumphant until May 2014. After that point, he traveled as a solo performer.

Stice also wrote Southern Gospel songs and recorded several solo albums over the course of his career of 40-plus years.
