Daywind Music Publishing Continues To Expand Roster

Daywind Music Publishing Continues To Expand Roster

Hendersonville, TN – Daywind Music Publishing has added songwriter Janice Crow to its ever-growing family of award-winning talent.

A regular attendee of Sue Smith’s Write About Jesus conference, Janice Crow burst onto the scene approximately six years ago when she won the writing competition that led to a variety of open doors within the songwriting community.  Those opportunities included song pitches to prominent music publishers, as well as co-writes with some of the leading writers in the genre.  A writing session with Lee Black and Sue Smith led to the creation of a choral anthem entitled “The Name,” as well as the song “Amazing God,” that would go unrecorded for several years.  In 2015, the song found a home with Triumphant Quartet, who took it to #1 on the Singing News Chart, and was awarded Song of the Year by the Singing News Fan Awards.  With her increasing momentum, Janice was a natural fit into the Daywind roster of exclusive staff writers.  To bring the story full circle, she signed her contract with Daywind Music Publishing during Write About Jesus, exactly six years after she won the songwriting contest.

“Janice Crow has a natural talent for writing a unique idea set to a commercial tune, and her persistence in developing that talent into a craft is most impressive,” shares Rick Shelton, VP of Daywind Publishing.  “We are so excited to commit our service to Janice and her songs as she joins our publishing family.”

In addition to Janice Crow, Daywind Music Publishing has signed songwriting agreements with a number of talented writers this year, including Lee Black, Tim Lovelace, Devin McGlamery and Brandon Sharp.  Award-winning writers Dianne Wilkinson, Sue C. Smith, John Rowsey and Belinda Smith have all extended their relationship with DMP.

Daywind Music Publishing services an impressive roster of acclaimed songwriters including Lee Black, Matthew Browder, Jason Clark, Jason Cox, Janice Crow, Aaron and Amanda Crabb, Adam Crabb, Gerald Crabb, Chris Cron, Ricky Free, Marty Funderburk, Karen Peck Gooch, Joseph Habedank, Tim Lovelace, Devin McGlamery, Kyla Rowland, John Darin Rowsey, Brandon Sharp, Belinda Smith, Sue C.

Two New Projects Available Today From Award-Winning Group, The Nelons

Written by Staff on August 12, 2016 – 8:26 pm -

cd41873 nlfhHendersonville, TN (August 12th, 2016)4t – Daywind recording artists, The Nelons, are excited to announce the release of Stronger Together and Family Harmony, both available today!

After nearly two years of writing, song-selection and recording, the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame members were faced with the challenge of selecting which of the eighteen recorded songs would make it onto their newest album.  The Nelons felt strongly that each song held an incredible potential to minister to and encourage listeners, so instead of narrowing down the selection, the idea of jointly releasing Stronger Together and Family Harmony was born.With a long list of world-class songwriters gracing the credits, it’s not difficult to see why eliminating songs from the track listing would be near impossible.  An accomplished songwriter in his own right, Jason Clark was honored to co-write with such legendary writers as Dony and Reba (Rambo) McGuire, and Dawn Thomas, in addition to the contributions Songwriters of the Century, Bill and Gloria Gaither, made to the project. Paired with the incomparable orchestrations and musicianship of hall of famers such as Brent Mason, Gordon Mote and David Huntsinger, among others, Stronger Together and Family Harmony are both exceptional projects that the Nelons are eager to present to their long-time fans, and new listeners alike.

Two very special guests, Bill Gaither and Karen Peck Gooch, joined the Nelons in the studio to offer their talents to these collections of songs.  Karen and Kelly Nelon Clark reminisce on their time singing together with Kelly’s father, Rex Nelon, with a sentimental song entitled ‘You Can’t Make Old Friends’ while Bill Gaither joins the family-group on ‘Suppertime.’ The Nelons also put their special touch on a few familiar classics such as ‘We Shall Behold Him,’ ‘I Think I’ll Read It Again,’ and ‘Then Came The Morning.’

The first single from the pair of projects, ‘I Just Can’t Make It By Myself’ is featured on Family Harmony. The song climbed the Singing News Radio Charts earlier this Spring, and has been a crowd favorite with audiences across the country.  The current radio single, ‘My Father’s House,’ from Stronger Together, was released to radio in July and its smooth tones and tight harmony are already resonating with listeners.

Family Harmony and Stronger Together are available at Christian retail stores across the country and digitally at iTunes and other online outlets.  Bulk purchasing for gift and ministry purposes is available by calling 1.800.635.9581.

Daywind Records is home to an award-winning roster of artists, including Legacy Five, Adam Crabb, Browders, Jim Brady Trio, Greater Vision, Joseph Habedank, The Hoppers, Karen Peck & New River, Bowling Family, Tribute, Nelons, Brian Free & Assurance, Blackwood Brothers Quartet, the Second-Half Quartet and Wilburn & Wilburn.  Daywind is distributed to retail through New Day Christian Distributors, Sony RED, and all major digital outlets, including iTunes.
