Influence Music is a faith based record label and artist collective birthed out of Influence Church in Anaheim Hills, California, comprised of the artists Melody Noel, Matt Gilman and Whitney Medina. Marked by the desperate desire to create a culture and language of worship for every person, both in and outside of the church, Influence Music aims to create songs with an eternal shelf life for the single purpose of bringing God glory.
Their debut album “Touching Heaven” was a breakout success, hitting Billboard #1 on the Christian Album charts, #7 on emerging artist chart and #1 on iTunes. Audience sizes grew to over 50K Facebook fans, 100k YouTube subscribers and an average of 500K monthly listeners on Spotify. “Mistakes” sung by Noel was in the top 25 on the Christian Radio Airplay charts, while “Spirit Lead Me” sung by Ketterer emerged in the top 20 of Christian Billboard Hot Tracks.
Their Sophomore album “Rebels” released July 2019 — a departure from the typical worship sound and substance, taking a head-first dive into a melding of pop sensibilities and a raw, immersive exploration of the plight of the every-man in his or her pursuit of God — saw a 300% increase in their streaming numbers and the companion short film garnered over 1,400,000 views across Facebook and YouTube.
In 2020 After stepping out creatively with the “Rebels” album, Influence Music launched a series of “Live at Church: Mixtapes”, giving their global community of listeners a window into a “typical Sunday”. They also collaborated with Harvest Worship on “The Day That Christmas Came” – released December 2020.
Influence Music’s third full length album is due Q2 2021.
