Both Carl and Gregory, who began their own journeys as gospel recording artist in the past 5 years, have decided to share their knowledge along with other industry professionals about the process of being an indie gospel recording artist.
The idea for “Navigation” was born out of conversations Carl had with other indie gospel artists about how to achieve certain goals as an indie artist. Carl stated, “since releasing my debut project in 2016, I have learned a lot. Those things I’ve learned, I want to share with others.”
“Navigation Indie Gospel Artist Road Map” will feature workshop classes on Production, Branding, Publishing, Streaming, and Radio Servicing. Guest panelists for the Workshop include Music Publishing expert Courtney Benjamin, and Dallas A. Frazier, the host of the internationally syndicated radio show, “New Artist Profile with Tony D on the Radio”. The Workshop will conclude with an Indie Gospel Artist Showcase.
