Raging Storm Records is happy to announce the hiring of Lisa Wessel as their Marketing Director. This completes their new management team following their recent re-launch.

Lisa began her career in the music industry as a teenager. She states: “I always had a passion for learning and spent countless hours at libraries and at Barnes & Noble, reading every book I could on marketing and the music industry.” She then went on to study Marketing at Houghton College while still continuing her work in the industry.

Lisa spent many years as an Independent Marketing Consultant working with various Indie and Major labels and artists. Just like RSR, she took an extended hiatus from the industry in recent years. “Never would I have thought that God would lead me back to where it all began, in the music industry. I truly have a passion for music and providing support to artists so they can go out and pursue their dreams on the stage.”

After a five year hiatus, Raging Storm Records aims to return to the independent music scene. Originally founded in 2005, the label abruptly closed it’s doors in 2012, citing personal and family reasons. “It was always our intention to operate as a service first, God-honoring ministry” says Raging Storm founder Jason Scannell. “Shutting down hurt, but where we were personally, it was the right thing to do.”

Previous releases from Raging Storm covered a diverse array of rock-based genres. Jason’s wife of 25 years and Raging Storm co-founder, affectionately dubbed “Mama Storm” by one of their earlier bands, describes their music as ranging from “coffee shop acoustic to death metal.” They simply seek to make honest and beautiful music.

The term “ministry” implies “service” and the experienced leadership team at Raging Storm seeks to serve and equip Christian musicians with innovative tools to help them achieve a positive balance between ministry and family life. Serving bands is the passion and the goal of everyone at Raging Storm Records.
