Legacy Five Stays With Daywind Records

January 15, 2014 By: Aaron Category: Legacy Five, SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music

With the recent Kickstarter campaign to fund the group’s upcoming release, speculation began as to whether Legacy Five would remain a Daywind artist much longer. Those questions were answered today in an announcement from Daywind:

Multi-award-winning artist Legacy Five recently signed a long-term recording contract with Daywind Records. Daywind has been Legacy Five’s home for the past decade, beginning with the group’s “London” project. The group is putting the finishing touches on their latest recording, entitled “Great Day.” The upcoming release is produced by Lari Goss, and it will release on March 25.

Legacy Five manager Scott Fowler stated, “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Daywind. Daywind has an incredible roster of artists, and we consider it an honor to be a part of their family. We are very excited about the direction they are going. We feel like our fans are part of our team, too. Daywind is inviting our fans to choose the cover photo for our new CD, ‘Great Day.’ Fans can vote athttp://legacyfive.wordpress.com/2014/01/13/choose-l5s-new-cd-cover/#comment-3168.

“Legacy Five is one of the premiere groups in Gospel music. This agreement will continue Daywind’s successful partnership with Legacy Five for the foreseeable future,” stated Daywind Vice President Scott Godsey.

In 2014, Legacy Five will celebrate its 14-year anniversary in Southern Gospel Music, having been formed by Roger Bennett and Scott Fowler, two of the members of the legendary Cathedral Quartet. The male quartet has been nominated for two Dove Awards and more than 75 Singing News Fan Awards. “Great Day” comes to Legacy Five fans following its latest release, a “A Wonderful Life.” “A Wonderful Life” included the successful singles “Ask Me Why,” “Living In the Palace,” and “I’m Still Amazed.”

Daywind Records is home to a great roster of artists such as Brian Free and Assurance, Adam Crabb and Greater Vision. Daywind is distributed to retail through New Day Christian Distributors, Select O Hits, and all major digital outlets including iTunes.

    I may be overreacting, but I don’t like Kickstarter being used to fund major label releases. This makes at least two projects now that were funded on Kickstarter and then picked up by Daywind. I donated to help support the artists, not subsidize a record company. Is my thinking wrong on this?

    • I can understand that line of thinking. Obviously, we don’t know the details, but it did cause confusion as to whether this was a table project or mainline release when they had a fundraiser, and then further questions for their future record company status once we found out it was indeed with Daywind.

      When it was specifically stated that they were responsible for their own funding this time, that raised some red flags with me, but hopefully this agreement can refresh the partnership for everyone.
