Keith Barkley/ Cherith Music Group Solicates People on Facebook

We entered into an agreement with Keith Barkley in which he would record 6 songs a month to complete a project of literally hundreds of songs that we have written. In the beginning he said he LOVED our music and that GOD had TOLD HIM to work with us to record it all. We were to pay him only $360 a month every month until they were all finished. In the agreement we were supposed to APPROVE his work before accepting it as the FINAL MASTER. (He did it this reasonable because he said GOD TOLD HIM TO, only to come back later and complain about what he charged us when we were not happy with our product) This man took 7 months to complete 12 songs and he changed the melody lines of our music, did not do the music correctly, he was THE WORST person we have ever worked with musically EVER! He is ATE up with PRIDE so much that he does not even hear what the client wants he thinks everything he wants to do is "THE GOSPEL"! When we told him about the changes he was making he FORCED the changes on us basically by NEVER doing what we asked him to do, but only lingering it out so long until we got so frustrated that he was NEVER getting done that we had to take what we could get for the money we had given him. We wisened up by the 2nd month to what was happening and backed out of doing any more songs with him but then he even took longer since we were not part of his monthly meal ticket anymore. When I finally demanded he finish the work (7 months later) he put us down, told me that I had demon spirits and put our music down saying it was not good and TACKED GOD ON IT of course! I guess GOD must have changed his mind from the beginning about Keith Loving our music and about it being HIS CALLING to work with our music. This man is a POOR EXCUSE of a Christian and HORRIBLE Business owner! He does NOT care what the client desires, only what he wants to do. He even told my husband that out of all of the years of recording that he has NEVER been wrong about anything! When he finally sent us the project, one song is so bad we can not even use it and he sent one song without any vocals on it at all. Plus after he started getting the monthly payment even though he had not finished the months songs before, he started demanding payment for the next month when he had shoved our project on the back burner as he was taking many more projects to support his "ministry and his family". So what he is doing is taking tons of work demanding money upfront and not finishing the work in a timely manner and not producing the music in the way it was written. Plus he charges to be on his music label or to be affliated with his Music Group. So anyone that charges for things like that is a Scammer and does not finish the projects in the way that they PROMISE are Scammers plus he was trying to bait us with saying he would help pitch our songs if we went with him. Although I never believed him I realize that he was just baiting us to take our money and produce a *** product. He also called me names and when my husband confronted his emails to me he ignored him because he felt so comfortable with ABUSING and BULLYING Me IN THE NAME OF GOD! Update: As well he claims to be a Preacher but when he repsonded to my Rip Off Report Post that I made about his BUISNESS he attacked MY HUSBAND and my personal issues as well when my husband has only tried to talk and email PERSONALLY to this man in an attempt to settle the matter I am the one who took it in the ONLINE direction. I wonder would JESUS attack someone's personal issues when he always said who ever was without sin to cast the first stone and also addresses business matters totally different than personal ones.

Attention to everyone reading this post. DO NOT take Charlie and Gina Jones as a client for recording. They are the people who have made this complaint and EVERYTHING they have said is 100% FALSE. I have e-mail proof with dates and times where they approved the work I have done. They also failed to read their contract that states that the deposit is non-refundable. They were also told that their music needed some work to make it much better. We did NOT say we LOVED their music. We told them that we did feel that God told us to call them because we could HELP them. I also have the email proof of that. They were also given a cut rate for the work which was far below the normal rate due to their financial situation. It boils down to the fact they wanted to find something wrong with anything they could to avoid paying for the services rendered. They also had a separation in their marriage that resulted in they delay of the total project which I have email proof once again to back that up. Due to that separation, Gina herself in a email that I have told me to take all the time that was necessary to get the work done. She even told me to scratch one of the songs we had most of the way finished and had spent a lot of time on, and put another one in it's place. We did that for her and even wrote the music for her and she LOVED it and we have the email to prove that as well. The song she wanted to scratch was one of Charlie's songs that she herself said she had told Charlie she never did like and it wasn't that great of a song. She was defaming him all over Facebook and then all of the sudden she takes him back and they start their bologna like nothing ever happened.

They are the only clients that have EVER said they were not pleased with our work. They even made comments that they have even been in the "Nashville" scene. Well, I know some of that Nashville crowd and the few names they gave me that they knew, when contacted did not know who they were.

I have a BIG list of people who are TOTALLY satisfied with our work. The problem with Charlie and Gina Jones are that THEY are prideful, egotistical, people who think they are God's gift top songwriting and have no reason to be. The reason for their separation is that Charlie has a problem with ***, and has had for years. And from what has been posted on Facebook, we do not have time or space to talk about Gina's problems. It has always been said that when you expose demon spirits for who and what they are, they will rare up on you and this occasion is NO exception.

We at Cherith have a great reputation in several states with our clients. If you want to bring trouble into your business as well as stress, than Charlie and Gina Jones are CERTAINILY the clients for you. If not, then certainly STAY CLEAR of these people.
