CHRIS CHICAGO joins SAVE THE CITY RECORDS as the label's new head of national promotion. CHICAGO, founder of SHAMROCK MEDIA GROUP, has left his position as an independent promoter at SHAMROCK to exclusively represent SAVE THE CITY RECORDS artists, including BENJIMAN, BRANDON BEE, BYRON "MR. TALKBOX" CHAMBERS, CIRCLESLIDE, KIMBER RISING, JEKOB and THE WASHINGTON PROJECTS.
"We chose CHRIS CHICAGO to exclusively represent SAVE THE CITY RECORDS because of his reputation of solid promotion in Christian music, with a proven track record of delivering hits," said SAVE THE CITY Pres. DEREK HOIEM. "CHRIS understands our vision for the label and already has been articulating it to stations across the country."
"The heart of SAVE THE CITY RECORDS fits exactly with my own core values and beliefs, so getting a chance to work with DEREK HOIEM and do ground-up ministry with him was something I couldn't pass up," said CHICAGO. "SAVE THE CITY RECORDS selects artists who are 'the real deal' in their musical talent, in what they preach, and how they live. Those are the kinds of artists I want to work with and share with radio. I am super honored to be a part of the team at SAVE THE CITY!"
While at SHAMROCK, CHICAGO worked with SWITCHFOOT, NATALIE GRANT, CASTING CROWNS, THIRD DAY, PILLAR, RED, TENTH AVENUE NORTH, PLUMB, LEELAND, GROUP 1 CREW, LECRAE, FIREFLIGHT, JARS OF CLAY, MIKESCHAIR, NEWSBOYS and RUSH OF FOOLS.
