An exciting inside look into the beginnings of a record label
This is a great StartUp-esque podcast following a music executive and his assembling of bands and people around a common vision. Loved hearing the interviews and stories behind Chris’s desire to start this label. It was also interesting to hear the producer’s personal take on the events in the podcast and the Christian nature. Loved the choice to share the beginnings via podcast format.
I never knew about all the ins and outs of the Christian music industry. And as a millennial who values the shift in Christian music, I love that this podcast explores those options and new genres. Really enjoyed the progression of the new record label but also was incredibly inspired to continue to pursue Christian music making.
