StowTown Records Announces New Worship Imprint; Signs Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Expanding its reach as a burgeoning leader in multi-genre entertainment, independent Gospel Music label StowTown Records announces the launch of its newest imprint, StowTown Worship. Created to serve the Church with a diverse range of music and resources, StowTown Worship has signed world-renowned genre pioneers The Brooklyn Tabernacle as its flagship artist. 

In celebration, the label is set to make seven of the group’s acclaimed recordings from their historic catalog available for the first time on digital platforms. Leading the way is tomorrow’s reissue of The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir’s first GRAMMY®-winning release, 1993’s Live…We Come Rejoicing, as well as the 1995 GRAMMY®-winning album Praise Him…Live! Five additional catalog releases will bow later this month, ahead of StowTown Worship’s new recording from The Brooklyn Tabernacle in October.   

“Our company has always had a heartbeat and passion for the Church, so the addition of StowTown Worship is a natural progression of our vision,” explains Landon Beene, partner, StowTown Records and StowTown Worship. “It is fitting to announce this brand-new venture with the signing of the beloved Brooklyn Tabernacle as our debut artist on the StowTown Worship label. We are thrilled about this new journey and excited for what the future holds.”

Absolutely Gospel Music
Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as SoGospelNews.com, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to AbsolutelyGospel.com. The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
