We are pleased to announce the creation of our first two imprints, Old Bear Records and Sprig Worship. These imprints are meant to serve as musical homes for songs within the larger Sprig Music record label that help identify the art’s unique missional values. We believe that these imprints not only serve artists more faithfully but give audiences a sense of what to expect from each ‘house.’
Old Bear Records will serve general market songs and projects, paying special attention to folk, Americana, blues, and jazz. Sprig Worship will house Christian worship songs and projects, most of which work best as congregational resources in churches through CCLI’s SongSelect. Both imprints, however, work together to serve the larger Sprig Music goal of using the musical arts to bring hope, beauty, and life to humanity.
Listeners may observe our artists releasing songs under both imprints; this is intentional, as many of our artists do not write and record just one style of music, nor is there always a singular categorical aim. It’s this diversity that drove our decision to create imprints in the first place. Having multiple imprints gives our artists more freedom to write outside of conventional restraints and broadens their voice to speak to areas that they may otherwise have been kept from.
Thank you for growing with us and embracing the music-makers who are painting pictures of life the way it should be.
