Transform Music Group announces its most recent signing, Michigan-based modern rock band Scarlet White. Scarlet White will release its national debut in April of next year.

Comprising drummer Jacob Hendricks, guitarist Dan Hall, vocalist Spencer Minor, and bassist Erick Penn, Scarlet White formed in 2007. In three short years, the group amassed an impressive local following, which garnered the attention of Transform Music Group A&R Director, Aaron Richardson.

Richardson comments, “Christian music needs another quality ‘man rock’ band, and these guys deliver. Not to mention, they are one of the hardest working bands I have ever met. Their personal and professional ethics are a perfect fit with the vision of TMG.”

Transform Music  Group CEO and president Matt Rogers adds, “Scarlet White mixes a big arena rock sound with strong, singable anthem choruses and lyrics that glorify God and country. More importantly, however, the band is dedicated to ministry first, and that is the type of artist we truly get excited about.”

Scarlet White’s debut, available in April, will be produced by Josh Silverberg (Seabird, Luminate), and feature sounds for fans of groups like Kutless and Red. The band will support the record on tour with labelmate At The Onset next spring. For more information on Scarlet White, visit www.myspace.com/scarletwhitemusic.

Based in Nashville, Tenn., Transform Music  Group, a division of Mattrix Media Group, was founded by  Matt Rogers, a 15-year veteran of the Christian music industry. The foundation of Transform Music  Group is based on Acts 4:13 “The members of the council were amazed when the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures. They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus.” The label, whose motto is “We’re not afraid to be a Christian Record Label,” seeks artists with a unique message and strong work ethic. It aims to represent the spectrum of Contemporary Christian Music genres.  For more information, visit www.transform-music.com or www.twitter.com/transformmusicg.
