Philippa Hanna Needs Your Help

Dear friends…

We need your help to ‘Keep on driving‘! We are very excited to bring you the ‘Beautiful Horizons’ collection. This range of clothing and accessories has been put together to help us raise funds for a touring vehicle.

As mentioned in the video below, our old touring vehicle fell apart so we need to replace it. Our needs have also changed. We need to be able to take extra team members on the road, bring a better selection pf products to events and have plenty of room for all our Compassion resources! So please treat yourself to something from the store and help us to stay On The Wagon!! Thank you as always for supporting independent music and ministry…

Lots of love,

Dancing the Truth in Love with Anita Faye

Multi-talented singer/songwriter ANITA FAYE recently joined Emmy Award winning musician and choreographer Wyatt Jackson and a host of world-class dancers, singers, musicians and storytellers on the stage of Boston’s historic Strand Theatre for the Christian worship arts production, Dancing the Truth in Love. The performance featured artists from Boston, New York, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Las Vegas.

“The vision of Dancing the Truth in Love was to formulate a Christian worship arts extravanganza where Christians could express their faith through creativity, telling stories through music and dance, ultimately edifying and bringing the Christian community together through love and worship arts,” explains event organizer Wyatt Jackson. “It was an honor to be asked by the City of Boston to help develop program content in collaboration with Boston’s iconic Strand Theatre. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate this amazing opportunity than to invite some of the most relevant Christian performing artists in the country for a kick-off event and community celebration.”

“We invited singers such as the amazing Anita Faye of Las Vegas, who kicked off and closed the event, and the renowned tap dancer and actor Khalid Hill of New York, among others,” continues Jackson. “We also had local artists and ministries from around the country including Atlanta and Philadelphia.”

“Dancing the Truth in Love was something I could not be prouder to have been a part of,” says Faye. “There is something magical that happens when we express our praise to God through the unique gifts and talent He has given us. It was such an honour and great experience to share the stage with so many incredible dancers, and to sing on such a powerful program.”

Faye’s recently-released project, the 13 song CD, Kingdom Journey, is available from major online retailers including iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and Google Play. For more information on Anita Faye and Kingdom Journey, visit

Song #23 from Homegrown Worship

If you think you’ve tasted the full palette that church music has to offer, then feast your ears on this week’s Homegrown Worship song…

What would it sound like if Bruce Springsteen wrote a worship song about the Prodigal Son? (Bet you didn’t see that coming did you?)

Take Me Back sounds different than many other songs the church is singing because it is different! Upbeat and quick-tempoed, you can almost hear the Prodigal Son’s racing heart before He lands into the crescendo of the Father’s eternal love.

The music truly paints a picture of the nervous anticipation, warm embrace, and healing restoration of God the Father’s love.

Homegrown Worship continues to featured on the official Spotify New Music Friday Christian playlist, attracting thousands of new listeners to our weekly releases. Help your listeners unearth a new sound on their Christian walk by sharing this week’s song.

Plankton Records 40th Anniversary CD’s to be Released 9th November 2018

2018 marks the 40th anniversary of Plankton Records which launched on May 6th 1978 with the release of “Mirrored Dreams” by founding partner Simon Law’s (then) band.

Having compiled an album in 1998 to mark the 20th anniversary the partners Keith Dixon and (the now Rev) Simon Law decided to create and release this second volume to mark years 21 to 40. However, the first 4 tracks on this album are from the first 20 years and were, for various reasons, not included on the First 20 Years album but the partners wanted to include them here to make the overall 40th anniversary compilations complete in their eyes.

Plankton’s overriding desire and aim is to support artists who are keen to get out in front of people and communicate something of the Christian faith and/or comment on the world in which we live through their music. It’s always been about the message behind the music and not the music’s style or genre. Hence the wide range of musical styles that are featured on this celebration of the music of Plankton Records.
