Indie Artist Network

  • Filling the Gap
    (AUG 2011) They’ve got the rock bands. They’ve got the adult contemporary. They’ve even got the gospel choir. But one thing the CCM world has been missing is true, authentic hip-hop. Well, until Lecrae.
  • The Agent's Role In Your Career
    At some point in your career, you may have wondered if you need an agent or not. In theory, it sounds like a great idea to have someone readily available to book you gigs at Bridgestone Arena, but the real question you should be asking yourself first is: “What does an agent really do?”
  • Transparent Leadership
    We so often live and worship as though we’re pleading with God to come near with one hand and holding Him off with the other, what’s our problem? Why is this Christian life so hard to live? Why do we sometimes feel like Paul, going crazy in the cycle of faith and fear or living holy or heathen?

  • Take It to the Next Level
    Not only are Brett Manning and his team of coaches recognized as some of the world’s best vocal instructors to the top artists in mainstream music today, but they have also been key in the success of many praise and worship teams and choirs across the country.
  • Letters From Lindsey: Simply "Trust"
    We've all been there as artists and musicians: in that place where we feel ‘ready’ and ‘prepared’ to move forward with our careers; make it big, or at least make a living, and yet God is still saying: “Wait”. How do we reconcile our frustration and impatience?
  • Should You Hire an Artist Manager?
    Are you an independent artist thinking about hiring a manager? This may be one of the most important decisions in the life of your artistic career, so don’t esteem it too lightly. A good manager can make your career, just as a bad manager can seriously break it.

While their intent might have been otherwise, their smooth yet spiritual...
  • Inspired Songwriting
    For Krissy Nordhoff, writing for someone else wasn’t necessarily in the game plan. “When I originally wrote Your Great Name, it was for a worship compilation CD my church was recording and another member of our worship team ended up being the vocalist.
  • Living Worship
