Industry veterans announce the creation of Contemporary Christian Music Development Institute |, 25 July 2011 [cached]
Newsboys' Michael Tait teams up with music executives Wes Campbell and Bernard Porter for new venture
Music industry veterans Michael Tait, Wes Campbell and Bernard Porter have formed Contemporary Christian Music Development Institute (CCMDi), an innovative program dedicated to assisting Christian music artists in achieving success in their careers.
Tait, Campbell and Porter, collectively, have succeeded in every facet of the music industry, including entertainer, manager, producer, A&R executive and booking agent.
Campbell, who discovered Newsboys in Australia in the mid-1980s, is credited with securing Newsboys' first U.S. record deal and subsequent move to America, where he has served as their manager for more than two decades. With his guidance, Newsboys has remained one of the genre's most successful bands, achieving record sales in excess of 8 million and garnering 31 No. 1 radio singles.
Campbell also has managed Mat Kearney and served as executive producer on a number of musical projects, including music by Kearney, Superchic[k], and Tree63.
Throughout his career, Campbell has launched and managed several successful businesses, including First Company Management, InPop Records and Creative Audio and Light. He owns or co-manages three of the largest contemporary Christian festivals in America, including Creation Festival East and West and the Sonshine Festival. He developed and launched the concept of an inflatable 3,500-seat dome that has been used as an "instant theater," as well as an innovative traveling portable music festival venue that was featured on Festival con Dios, The Jessica Simpson Dreamchaser Tour and Marty Stuart's Electric Barnyard Tour. Campbell also designs the ever-evolving and mechanically-complex stage sets that draw sold-out crowds to Newsboys tours.
"We are very proud to offer the CCMDi program to the many deserving Christian artists who otherwise may never have the opportunity to be heard," says Campbell.
