Christian music industry executive Shane Boyd has launched the full-service artist management firm Kickstand Entertainment. The company’s first clients include Fair Trade Music Publishing singer-songwriter-producer Carter Frodge (formerly with the band Everyday Sunday), as well as Joel Vaughn, who has had three Top 20 singles, as well as a track included on the soundtrack for God’s Not Dead–A Light In Darkness.
In the ’90s, Boyd worked as a sound engineer and road manager, before spending 13 years working in radio promotions in the Christian rock and CHR formats. His label clients included Fair Trade Services, Gotee Records, Inpop Records, VSR Music Group, and Slospeak Records.
“Serving in different roles in the Christian music industry for more than two decades, I felt like it was time to put my experience—and the relationships I have built along the way—to work for artists I believe in,” Boyd said. “Through Kickstand, I hope to help new artists build long-lasting ministries, as well as to assist in furthering the careers of established talent. I couldn’t be happier to be starting this journey with Carter and Joel.”
