Remedy.fm went live in October 2007 with a mission to use relevant, positive music as a vehicle to connect with a generation on the internet. Their purpose was to develop relationships with teens online so we could hear what they’re going through. Then, in God’s perfect timing, we could provide a “remedy” for the struggles they face.
KJ-52: Won his most recent Dove award late April 2009 in the category “Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song.” His last album “The Yearbook” was released fall 2008. KJ-52 has sold over 500,000 albums.
Red Umbrella: A four member pop-rock band from Canada now signed to 7-Spin Records, an indie label out of Valparaiso, Indiana. Their new album “Living and Surviving” was released late 2008.Â
