Discover the New Music Indie-Stry
Franklin, TN (PRWEB) April 9, 2007
Indieheaven, the leading Christian independent artist organization announces a brand new slogan to go along with their brand new website design. "Discover the New Music Indie-Stry" perfectly describes our mission," states Indieheaven President, Keith Mohr. Mohr also shares, "With the dramatic changes in the recording industry, the time has come for a new model of the music industry where artists utilize services and tools offered by an organization with a heart for the independent artist and a proven track record of taking care of business.
The term "Indie-stry" came to mind since commerce is being conducted in the independent community, moreso now than ever before as consumers decide who they will engage and support. The difference with Indieheaven is that the artist can obtain label type of activities without their intellectual property and master recordings being controlled by a record label. The artist and Indieheaven partner in an "interdependent" relationship, yet still retain their autonomy as they pursue their God given missions. We are excited about this new model and believe it is a compliment to the existing CCM industry."
Indieheaven also celebrated 5 years online January 4, 2007. Mohr states, "being online non-stop for 5 years has been made possible by our faithful members, who invest in themselves through the vehicle of Indieheaven. Currently, there are 25 charter members still with us, and it is those artists whom we owe a special debt of gratitude for their longstanding commitment to our mission. Without our members, we would simply not be here. We look forward to many more years to come!"
