For over a decade, one of the most talked about issues pertaining to the gospel music fraternity in Ghana revolves around the absence of record labels that are solely Gospel Oriented. It’s believed to be one of the challenges that contributes to the woes of the Gospel Music Scene in Ghana.
At a Press Briefing on Monday Evening 6th Sept, at The Keeper’s House Chapel Int'l (TKH), Rev. Francis W. Aubyn, The Lead Pastor, TKH addressed the Media gathered on Ghana’s First Registered Gospel Record Label called The Keeper’s Music.
The Label seeks to create a capacity that will enhance and position gospel music in this generation and beyond. Again, The Keepers Music record label is built to create a consented effort to harness and support talented song ministers in the Church to express themselves in the industry without all the challenges associated with composition, production, and marketing. Last but not the least, the Label will serve as a model to encourage others to emulate to stop the loss of talents in the Church to the world due to resource (technical, material, etc) constraints.
The Label has released its Debut Single which features Joe Mettle and Flo Ra (Music Manager & artiste on the label). The single titled Beautiful God Is Out and Available on all online platforms accompanied by a captivating live video on YouTube. Listening to Beautiful God, it’s evident the song was drawn from an intimate time of fellowship with God.
Beautiful God was composed and produced with capacity built in-house by seasoned Music Producer Kwabby (Audio engineering) and video sensation on the block Jephta (video production).
At the briefing, Rev. Francis said; “Right now, one of the most powerful movements in music globally has to do with Gospel music Movement. The birth of The Keeper's Music Label is a generational and prophetic turn, and we believe that God has situated us to start something to contribute to congregational worship because music is an integral part of our congregational worship. Our goal is to create congregational songs that will enrich worship experience of ordinary believers and help them to also have quality devotional life not just in Ghana or Africa but around the World”
The Keeper’s Music have to their credit all structures duly functioning in the record label. The departments making up the structures of the label include includes the following.
· A&R - Royalties
· Press & Promotions (PR)
· Marketing & PR
· Sales & Distribution
Rev. Francis ended his speech saying, “It’s time for us to rise and top the leakage of talents being lost to different spaces. It's our prayer that the media and key industry players rally behind this groundbreaking label to project gospel music emanating from Ghana to the whole world.”
