(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) March. 12, 2008—Indelible Creative Group, in association with Indieheaven.com, is announcing the release of Top 20 Indie 2008. The album compiles 20 of the most talented emerging artists from Indieheaven.com’s stable of independent Christian artists on one CD that releases on March 18, 2008. Artists and songs for the album were selected from members of Indieheaven.com by a panel of music industry experts from Indelible Creative Group and Indieheaven.com based on song quality, artist exposure and web traffic among other criteria.
"We've been looking for the right partner to help our Indieheaven.com members accomplish their mission,” comments Keith Mohr, Indieheaven.com president. “Joining with Indelible Creative Group to bring independent artists to the world is a real God thing. We look forward to the future with Chris Thomason and his team at Indelible."
In addition to the artists culled from IndieHeaven.com, the album also features new music from “GMA in the Rockies” talent competition winners, Crystal Stark (2006) and Rachel Hurt (2007).
Chris Thomason, Indelible Creative Group president and founder, developed the concept for the project. “In the world of independent music there are very few places you can go to get ‘real world’ information and practical advice to facilitate artistry and ministry,” says Thomason. “Indieheaven.com has proven to be that place, and we are excited to partner with them to create a product that brings greater awareness to independent artists.”
Top 20 Indie 2008 will also support Mission of Mercy’s Swaziland Mercy Center project in Africa. The Mercy Center serves orphans from pre-school through age 18 in the world’s highest known area of HIV/AIDS. Mission of Mercy is a Christian-based humanitarian organization helping to meet the physical and spiritual needs of children in poverty-stricken areas of the world. Through their programs, children receive food, education, medical aid and an opportunity to become contributing members and leaders of their communities. Mission of Mercy is active in 21 nations around the world.
"We are so pleased to be partnering with Indelible Creative Group on Top 20 Indie 2008,” says Mission of Mercy vice-president of development, Rick Mitchell. “Their heart for children living in poverty is evident. We look forward to raising awareness and helping the needs of the children we serve through this CD project."
Information on the album, IndieHeaven.com, Mission of Mercy, and how to submit music for future projects can all be found at www.top20indie.com, which will serve as the online home for the brand.
