This week I put together a list of 5 Websites that review new Christian Music. Little did I know that under the Christian music tab is a new list of sub-genres that mimic those found in secular music. In fact, there is a whole indie music movement in the Christian music scene.
While doing my research, I found hip-hop, DJs, indie-folk and metal bands all under the banner of Christian and Gospel. Its not just “Modern Contemporary Christian” anymore. If you are releasing a new Christian oriented project, you should be reaching out to the following 5 websites for reviews and interviews.
