That’s right friends, I have decided to transfer all the Indie Vision Music releases into mp3 format and upload them to the Indie Vision Music website.

Not only will you get the full IVM albums BUT, I have thrown in a bunch of rare tracks and demos never before released.

Dismissed “Complete Collection”
Includes the “Taking the Good With the Bad” album, “Self Titled” ep, the
2001 demo produced by Scott Silleta, and a mastered track of “The Fall of Friendship” that appeared ona  a certain compilation I produced.

Includes the independent Next in Line full length “In Due Time” released in 2000, Next in Line “Traffic”, “One in a Million” ep, “Unpluigged” ep, and the mastered rare track “Bye Polar” that appeared on a certain compilation I produced.

Indie Vision Music 10 Year Anniversary
July 4th marked our 10 years on the internet. It has been a great pleasure serving all of you over the years, whether it be in the albums I sold through the store, the bands I worked with during the label days, and even with the zine still running today. I thank God that I was able to hold on to this site and hopefully share a little bit of the hope I found through my relationship in Christ. It’s such a blessing knowing we have built an awesome community of readers and friends. So I want to personally thank each of you for continuing to support us over the years. God bless you all.

Indie Vision Music 10 Year Anniversary Show This is top secret but I am going to begin working on getting a show in Southern California and hopefully grabbing a few well known bands out of retirement to play this gig. Would you come?

That about wraps up this newsletter. Thanks for your support over the years and for continuing to visit each and every day. Take care and if you ever have a question, just email me

HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Comrades 2020

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.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
