Don’t you love that headline? Seriously though, I am so thankful for all of you listening to the music I put out in 2018, following the bands, requesting the tunes on your favorite stations, buying merch, and just for supporting Indie Vision Music this year. It has been an amazing ride. I still have that Craig’s Brother Ep on the way and then the rest of 2019 is up in the air. Currently working hard in my machining business and trying to figure out what to do next music wise. We are actually moving facilities to one down the street in Anaheim and yes that includes all the IVM merch (I ship from my real job). Anyway, check out the Billboard Christian Rock Radio Charts for this week and marvel at the sheer sight of infectious music invading the airwaves. Charts can be found below. This week Grandpa Loves Rhinos and Names Without Numbers both entered the main “Christian Rock National Airplay” chart in great positions. Keep requesting these tunes and let’s blow up 2019 in a big way. Don’t forget about new Craig’s Brother on the way. Thanks again everyone and God Bless you all this Christmas/New Years season.

All orders of Small Wars right here will get instant download of the ep on release day. Last release of April and for several weeks will be Must Build Jacuzzi “Last Place” and I am truly excited about this release among all the other fantastic albums put out this past month. Tapes are going fast due to it’s limited nature so get yours right here. After these “Metallic Gold” ones sell out it will not be reprinted and next pressing will be on a new color. Now on to the really exciting announcement, Indie Vision Music can officially say we have Billboard Charting Songs on the Nielsen Top Christian Rock Charts! It may seem insignificant and so small time but for a label like IVM with no team, no employees, no radio staff, this is a huge accomplishment. I’ve been working so hard at this for nearly 18 years and have never reached such a powerful ranking. This is only the beginning and there is still so much more to offer. If you want to help IVM continue charting, call BrokenFM or visit them at www.broken.fm and make your requests. The songs below are the ones I have charting.
