)-- IndieHeaven.com, the leading organization supporting Independent artists in Christian music, is pleased to announce that Bill Petty has been nominated as a Male Vocalist of the Year finalist in the in the 3rd annual Momentum Awards. These prestigious awards will be presented at the upcoming CIA Summit 2008 conference on March 29 in Franklin, Tennessee.
Indieheaven president, Keith Mohr states, "as the music industry continues to change and more and more artists are either staying independent or going back to their independent roots, it is important to recognize the pursuit of excellence in this growing ‘indie-stry’. The basis for the Momentum Awards is not competition, but comrades applauding and encouraging one another to create momentum in their music missions. We teach independents that momentum is paramount to success as an artist."
In his debut CD release, Wonder, Bill delivers a fresh and inspiring collection of ten original songs that draw on a vast and varied range of musical influences, held together by a powerful voice and solid underlying acoustic groove. From Worship to Contemporary, from Blues to a taste of Southern Gospel, Wonder draws hearts to celebration, reflection and worship. Blessed as husband to Cinda, and father to Eve and William, Bill can be found at NorthPointe Church in White House, TN where he serves as Worship Pastor, leading the Awakening worship experience each Sunday morning.
The Momentum Awards, now in its 3rd year, are the premier award recognition program for independent Christian Artists. Previous award winners have seen opportunities for advancement in their music and mission because of the recognition the awards garner. Some have moved into the CCM Industry, while others have continued to see success as independent artists.
From Feb 1, 2008 - March 1, 2008, fans will cast their final votes. The winners will be selected based on number of votes, plus a panel of indie-stry experts selection. Award winners will be announced on March 29, 2008 at the 5th Annual CIA Summit in Franklin, TN.
