Joseph Rojas, founding member of Dove Award-winning Christian rock band Seventh Day Slumber, has formed the Nashville Label Group. The new company will house dual imprints RockFest Records, featuring Seventh Day Slumber, hitmakers Random Hero, Indiana-based melodic rockers The Protest, female solo rocker Zahna, Nashville-based rock/metal band The Persuaded; and metalcore trio Amongst the Giants.
The Nashville Label Group will also house Burtonwood Records. The label’s roster features singer/songwriter Brooke Robertson, and pop vocalist Nathan Sheridan, whose debut single, “Loves Like That,” was recently released to Christian Hot AC formats. Both RockFest Records and Burtonwood Records will be distributed by New Day Christian Distribution, with digital distribution facilitated by The Orchard (Sony).
“After two decades in Christian music, the time is right for me to bring together the experience and relationships I have been blessed with to provide a platform for supporting and launching other artists I love and believe in,” said Rojas, president, Nashville Label Group. “I couldn’t be prouder of the artists we are partnering with out of the gate, many of them being friends we have traveled with on our City RockFest Tour.”
“Joseph Rojas has long been a driving force in Christian rock, through both Seventh Day Slumber and the City RockFest Tour,” said Ed Leonard, president, New Day Christian Distribution. “Our new partnership with Nashville Label Group brings many of the leading names in the Christian rock genre, as well as significant new voices in Christian pop, to the New Day family. We are honored to be able to support artists who reflect the same commitment to ministry Joseph has represented for more than two decades.”
