BoughtXBlood Signs with Raging Storm Records

posted in: Featured, News | 0

Lynchburg, VA – Raging Storm Records proudly welcomes BoughtXBlood as its first new band in over five years. The signing follows a string of recent accomplishments for the band, including a tour stop on the HM Magazine Stage at Creation Fest 2017, an upcoming show with P.O.D. at the Blue Ridge Rock Festival Pre-Party, and the recent release of their new single “I’m Done”, a song that takes a tough stance against sin and shows just how much the bands faith impacts their music and their lives.

“I am honored to have the chance to earn not only the business, but the friendship of a band like BoughtXBlood” says label founder Jason Scannell. “These guys represent exactly what we want in a band: hard work, creative music, and a true desire to share their faith. It’s all too easy for bands in this genre to tone down their beliefs, but they stand firm. From the moment I heard BXB, I was not just entertained but convicted. The whole team at Raging Storm stands behind them and their message. We look forward to coming alongside this band and growing together”.

BXB writes:

“BoughtXBlood is elated to sign with Raging Storm! We truly feel that God has led us to this point, as He has given, and taken away, in order that His will for BXB be accomplished. It is clear to us that RSR believes in The Message we are trying to convey. The label staff has been extremely helpful and supportive, which confirms for us that this will be a productive partnership that will grow us as a band, and a ministry, while furthering RSR’s efforts to expand the label. We are looking forward to greater opportunities than might have been available to us as a DIY band. The sky is the limit and we cannot wait to create more music and deeper relationships with everyone at Raging Storm Records!”

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.”
