CLG Distribution Welcomes Shackles Free Entertainment
CLG Distribution strikes yet another deal as it continues to pursue the goal of growing its Rap/Urban label and artist roster. The company has recently come to terms on a distribution deal with J. Robinson, founder of Shackles Free Entertainment and producer of Rhythm and Praise artist Stephen Thomas. Stephen Thomas is set to release his full-length album through Shackles Free and CLG on May 29, 2012. The first single, “True Praiser (Hustle Hard),” has gained over 9,000 hits to date.
“It’s such an eye opener to see God work through this deal. After many artists came and went through my studio for producer and sound engineer only services I realized I was being trained and called to begin this label. I bring over 10 years of music business and production experience to Shackles Free. I’ve seen local and national successes from artists I’ve worked with while they were new to the business. Now it’s time to take that experience and collection of artists I’ve recently work with and launch Shackles Free Entertainment. I’m so grateful for this opportunity to ink a deal with CLG. They’re such a great company and understand the fine line between business and ministry.”
CLG Distribution President David C. Coleman adds, “we’re pleased to welcome Shackles Free Entertainment to our growing roster of Urban labels and artists. Our goal as a company is to promote unity amongst the various ethnic and racial communities which comprise the true church. And we believe that supporting artistically creative music containing the uncompromising message of Jesus Christ is the best way to facilitate the process. We seek to break down the walls that divide true believers and have found a like-minded partner in Shackles Free Entertainment.”
Shackles Free Entertainment Artists include: J. Robinson, Stephen Thomas, E. Carter, Diligence, Daniel B, and Shenette Jones. The artists cover Hip Hop, Rhythm & Praise and Worship music within their respective genres of Christian music.
