As the year rapidly comes to an end, BEC Recordings looks ahead to 2010 with new artist signing to their freshman class, The Museum. Involved heavily with their local church, Briarlake Church in Decatur, GA, as well as leading at North Point Community Church partner churches, this pop/rock foursome is ready to share their music with the new and loyal fans they’ve made during 175 tour dates in their first year together.

“We’re excited to be working with BEC Recordings and the great team established there,” shares the band upon joining the BEC family. “We’re pumped to produce a great sounding record and get on the road as much as we can.  It’s the new faces we’ll meet along the way that make traveling great.”

The Museum has just finalized their debut radio single with producer Jason Ingram in Nashville, TN.  The band is anxiously working out the details of their freshman album, which will release in 2010, date to be determined.

Not only concerned with recording their label debut, the band is striving to make a difference  by teaming with Overlooked, a non-profit organization created to expose people to the problems in the world and offer a simple way to make a difference. Through the support of people at shows and events throughout the US, the band has raised thousands of dollars of support to provide meals to starving children worldwide.

The Museum is comprised of Ben Richter (Lead Vocals / Electric & Acoustic Guitar), Chris Brink (Bass / Background Vocals), Josh Kirk (Drums / Programming), and Geoffrey Ashcraft (Electric Guitar).  Find out more about The Museum at the newly posted BEC Recordings’ artist page: http://www.becrecordings.com/artists/283/The_Museum/bio/.  Follow the band on Twitter, (http://twitter.com/TheMuseumMusic), keep updated with their Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Museum/8105764350?ref=ts&v=wall) on MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/museumband).

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Between the White Noise

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
