Razzbarry Records  (Jacksonville, FL) is announcing the signing of The Great Transparency (Columbus, Ohio).

Razzbarry Records is the Management Company / Label of industry veteran Barry Blaze, which is currently home to his band Code of Ethics and his solo projects.

“We are so excited To be working with The Great Transparency. These talented young men have a healthy work ethic to go with their heart to share Hope to people in what can be a very difficult world,” says Blaze.

It is this work ethic that has already found them touring the country with national acts like Eleventyseven, Manic Drive, Hello Kelly, and Me in Motion, while also becoming very familiar faces at popular Summer festivals, such as Cornerstone, Ichthus, Prolife and Rockfest.

The Great Transparency started as a side project for Jeremiah Wagner,and Tommy Clingan, soon adding other members  Jameson Leasure, Kyle Bigham and Ray Bertka. Playing over a 100 shows a year, they have sold 2,000 copies of their self-released EP, If Worse Comes To Worst,  featuring the single “Run For It,“ which was produced by Grammy and Dove award winning songwriter and producer Barry Blair (known for being a founding member of Audio Adrenaline).

With almost 2,000 copies sold independently, it is no wonder they have already seen radio play on stations such as Yes FM, Remedy FM, Power FM, WBEL American family radio and even garnering three days as the winner on Radio U’s Battle of the Buzz.

But it’s their love for people that keep them pushing ahead, “There has been no greater time than now, in these turbulent and uncertain times, to go out, encourage and reach people of all ages where they are with this message.  It’s the Hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ,” says TGT front man Jeremiah Wagner.

Their high energy live show has earned them opportunities to share the stage with the respected talents of such acts as John Reuben, House of Heroes, Last Tuesday, Code of Ethics, Sherwood, Kevin Max, Stellar Kart, Decyfer Down, Spoken, Staple, Day of Fire, Remedy Drive, Joy Electric and After Edmund. The Great Transparency’s  “Hope Restored Tour“ starts September 23.

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.

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.
