For Immediate Release
Stellar Award Winner Phillip Carter Tapped As First Gospel Artist With An Exclusive Music Release In The Public Library System
New CD, Songs of Phillip Carter, Available On Wednesday, May 13, 2015
(Washington, DC) – May 13, 2015 – Many know Gospel artist Phillip Carter as the leader of Stellar Award-winning ensemble, Phillip Carter & SOV. Others recognize him as the owner of the Gospel record label, SOV, Inc., and still others are familiar with him as the co-visionary of the annual Independent Gospel Artists Alliance Conference held each July in Chesapeake, VA. Now Carter will also be known as the first Gospel artist to have his music exclusively available in the public library system through Altavoz Entertainment.
Altavoz is making the artist’s Songs of Phillip Carter the first exclusive library release of a musical recording via the Public Library system. Instead of getting it first online or at a store, fans of Carter’s music can visit their local library to hear this new music from the world renowned Gospel artist, musician, and producer. Songs of Phillip Carter will be available digitally on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 with the full CD dropping later this fall.
According to Nelson Jacobsen, CEO of Altavoz Entertainment, “This is really taking Keith Richard’s ‘the public library is the great equalizer’ idea and going the next step by rewarding the library with exclusive content, and the library users and music fans with the chance to hear new music for free.”
Carter is excited about the partnership as well. He says, "This is the first release of its kind and a ‘win, win’ for the Gospel Community as people are looking for new ways to expose people to Gospel Music. I, along with my company, SOV, Inc., are ecstatic and grateful about the opportunity to be exclusively released in the library system".
This Altavoz Entertainment release from SOV, Inc.’s The Songs of Phillip Carter will be digitally available via Hoopla Digital and physically available from Midwest Tape. Since this is the first of its kind project, Altavoz has teamed up with new crowdfunding and micropayment solution provider, JETCO Research, to enable the DO U LUV it tiny campaign on its website.
