Who Do We Work With?

Homegrown Worship is a growing global community. We’re not the kind of organisation interested in owning all your rights or charging you extortionate fees for our services. Typically, we work with…

Writers

Some people want to write and share songs without posting selfies everyday… this is okay with us! We have many writers who sing their own songs and some who ask us to help them find the right vocalist to bring their composition to life.

Artists

Homegrown Worship can help artists who are looking to reach a wider audience for their ministry by profiling the artist, their music and events. We help artists plug into a wider community whilst staying rooted in Christ.

Churches

Church families are an excellent way of fostering creativity, releasing songs and blessing their team and community as a whole. We especially love to help churches develop a sound that is indigenous to them.

What Are We Looking For?

The qualities we’re looking for from the people who get involved in the Homegrown Worship community are people who…

Share Our Heart

We are looking to work with people who share our heart for lifting the name of Jesus higher. We love to work with Kingdom-Builders.

Have a Voice

For anyone looking to sing their own material, we’re looking for performers with passion and talent. Some artists are polished pop singers and others a gravelly rock-lovers.

Develop Their Gift

We are looking for songwriters who are either already producing excellent material or have a clear gift we can help develop to this level through co-writing and coaching.

COST AND REVENUE SHARING

A NEW MODEL OF RECORD LABEL

icon1

Homegrown Worship is unlike any other Christian record label. We offer opportunities for established writers, artists and churches as well as those who are relatively new to the song-sharing journey.

One of the hardest things can be building a strong team around you to help develop your ministry. Homegrown Worship can take the hassle and heartache out of this.

Our approach is all about sharing. We exist to share new songs and we also share costs and revenues. Writers, artists and churches sign up to do a collection of songs with us and subscribe to our A&R, production, distribution and marketing services for a 12 month period

A&R, production, distribution, marketing and administration would typically cost £1200-3600 per release. However, for those we want to work with, we ask for a contribution of 50% of what we’d usually charge for our services (just £600-1800 per release), and share revenues from the sales and streaming 50/50.

This is a great opportunity to get involved and not to be missed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE ARE YOU LOOKING FOR THE HOMEGROWN WORSHIP PLAYLISTS?

We work with songwriters, artists, and churches typically but are also keen to work with bands, choirs, and collectives. We are looking for people who share our heart for lifting the name of Jesus higher along with vocal and songwriting talent.

WHO WILL LISTEN TO MY SONG?

Your song will be reviewed by our Chief Song Selector or by a member of our team. It will not be shared in its current format.

WILL I GET FEEDBACK ON MY SONGS?

By subscribing to one of our playlists, you will have access to an A&R (Artist & Repertoire) process where we review your songs, offer honest critique and constructive feedback, and help you turn your blooming good songs into songs that are ripe for the picking.

We are committed to sharing resources and encouraging writers to progress and can connect you with writers from within our community to help develop your songs if needed.

I'M ALREADY SIGNED TO A PUBLISHER... CAN I STILL SIGN UP TO A PLAYLIST?

If you’re a writer signed to a publisher, your publishing company will probably be delighted if someone wants to record a version of your song and share it. However, you will need to speak to your publisher first before signing any contracts with Homegrown Worship to record your songs. 

IF MY SONGS ARE HANDPICKED FOR A PLAYLIST, WILL I NEED TO SING ON THEM?

Not necessarily. Although it’s nice for our artists to represent their own songs, we also recognise that another vocalist or musician can bring a writer’s material to life if and when needed.

If you want to get your songs out there but don’t feel comfortable singing them yourself, we can coordinate the production of your songs using other vocalists or instrumentalists.

WILL YOU SHARE MY EXISTING RECORDINGS ON A HOMEGROWN WORSHIP PLAYLIST?

Unless agreed with our Chief Enthusiast in a separate arrangement, we select songs to be recorded for our Homegrown Worship and then have one of our production communities record a version of the song.

If your song has already been released, we are unlikely to consider it for a Homegrown Worship playlist.  However, we will be launching the world’s first Christian Music Distribution service and would be glad to share your song through that.

DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR ALL MY SONGS IN ONE LUMP SUM?

Not at all! We can set you up with a direct debit to breakdown payments into monthly, manageable bites. This will help spread the costs and ease the load on your recording project.

We’ve also helped scores of artists raise funds for projects through crowdfunding. 

I’D LOVE TO RELEASE MY MUSIC THROUGH A HOMEGROWN WORSHIP PLAY PLIST BUT CAN'T AFFORD TO CONTRIBUTE... WHAT SHOULD I DO?

You’re in luck! We have helped scores of artists raise £100,000 over the past 5 years through our crowdfunding platform, RocketFuel. We’d be more than glad to assist you through developing a crowdfunding campaign to reach your goal.

I DON'T REALLY WANT TO SIGN UP FOR A PLAYLIST BUT I WOULD LOVE OTHER ARTISTS TO RECORD MY SONGS. IS THERE ANY CHANCE YOU COULD USE MY SONGS?

We listen to all the songs that people submit to us however we don’t have a long queue are artists looking to record songs written by others. Most of our artists write and/or co-write their own material. It is possible we could make connections for co-writing but would suggest joining the Homegrown Worship Facebook group so you can to know other writers and artists.

HOW MANY SALES AND STREAMS WILL I GET IF YOU SHARE MY MUSIC?

We don’t have a crystal ball or a magic wand as both are God is not best pleased with either. The success that artists and songs achieve is down to a number of variable factors so we don’t make any promises on who will listen or like your material. We are however committed to an excellent approach to A&R, music production and distribution. Our team is also enthusiastic and responsive.
