InfluenceMusicInfluence Resources, an imprint of My Healthy Church, has formed a new music division, Influence Music.

The launch comes on the heels of We Believe, a joint release produced by Influence Resources and Integrity Music, which debuted at No. 1 on SoundScan’s Praise and Worship chart. The live album showcased original music from leading ministries and set the tone for the kind of work Influence Music will champion as a label.

Influence Music will be distributed by My Healthy Church, a provider of church supplies, ministry resources and curriculum. Additionally, Influence Music will provide music publishing administration services for churches and artists.

Sol Arledge, My Healthy Church COO, believes the timing of the launch is ideal.

“The amount of Holy Spirit-inspired creativity coming from our churches and universities is astounding,” Arledge said. “Combined with the marketing and distribution channels already developed by My Healthy Church, we have a truly unique opportunity to serve the church with outstanding worship music.”

Influence Music’s first release is set for August.
