Evolve Music Group Chairman/CEO Rodney Jerkins recently announced the launch of Lifestyle Music Group (LMG). The multi-Grammy® Award-winning producer, songwriter and executive has appointed industry veteran Demmette Guidry as General Manager of LMG, which will be distributed through Motown Gospel/Capitol Christian Music Group.
Bill Hearn, President/CEO of Capitol Christian Music Group, stated, “Rodney Jerkins’ entrance into the Christian and gospel music genres is long overdue. His track record speaks for itself, and I have no doubt our industry will benefit greatly from the artists and music he develops. All of us at Capitol Christian Music Group are honored to work with Rodney and the Lifestyle team and will do everything possible to contribute to their success.”
Larry Blackwell, VP/GM at Motown Gospel remarked, “Motown Gospel and Capitol Christian Music Group are thrilled to partner with Rodney’s Lifestyle Music Group. His consistent excellence in delivering hits over the past 20 years places him in a class by himself. We can’t be more pleased to work with Rodney and his seasoned team to develop his faith-based artists and their music.”
“Lifestyle Music Group is not a label,” emphasizes Rodney Jerkins. “It’s a destination where a community of artists can exist and just be themselves, authentically expressing their God-given gifts without judgment.”
Lifestyle’s kickoff roster includes two exciting singer/songwriters: Joy Enriquez and Tim Bowman Jr. The label’s rollout begins this spring with the Jerkins-produced Bowman single “I’m Good.” A Mother’s Day release is planned for Enriquez’s first single, “Hallelujah.” Also produced by Jerkins, the single features violinist/instrumentalist Lindsey Stirling.
