A Positive New Beginning

Each year at this time we make resolutions, or think about making resolutions, and as I’ve written in the past its actually more important to be resolute. In truth, I prefer to think of this time of year as a chance for new positive beginnings.

Get Seen. Get Heard.

For years, we have been trying to play the music industry game with music artists, songwriters, and ministries. I’ve always hoped we could find our niche to really help artists, songwriters, and ministries reach their audience, outside of what we have done well for years which is amazing music production and graphic identity. We think we have found the perfect ways to help any artist, songwriter, or ministry reach the audience they want, and affect hearts, minds, and even lives for the better.

It’s About the Songs

We have worked with artists and songs for almost three decades. Now more than ever, it just has to be about the songs. For some reason people think being a great singer, or entertainer, or artist is what it is all about. This is because we see the marketing behind these kinds of people and they stick out to us.

Whether you are an artist or songwriter, if you are reading this, you have probably been working towards a very pointed and exact target: Christian music. The problem is that we sometimes write a very similar message and style over and over again. Perhaps the problem is not what we are trying to do, maybe it’s that we are aiming for too small of a target…
