Diamante Music Group Changes

Bill Conine, former founder and president of Diamante Music Group, Inc., announced the formation of a new distribution company to facilitate labels that were recently left without representation by the sudden closure of Diamante Servant, LLC. The name of the new distribution company is Diamante Media Group, Inc.
“The labels and our staff felt that it was important to keep the Diamante identity since the Christian music industry has grown to associate that name with the successful launch of new cutting-edge music,” said Conine. “We will continue the legacy started by the former Diamante Music Group and focus on contemporary genres that reach the high school and college age market.”
“Many of the labels who are joining Diamante Media Group,” continued Conine, “are doing so at great financial sacrifice because they still believe in the concept of an independent, Christian owned and operated distribution system. Former Diamante staff members who have signed on to the new company believe the same way.
“We have always referred to ourselves as purpose driven as opposed to market driven,” states Sheri Hogan, Diamante Media’s new Director of Marketing. “We feel as though we are family,” stated Philip Von Wrede, president of Bettie Rocket Records. “Many of the labels feel like we do and share a common vision for ministry. We chose to stay and continue our ministry partnership rather than seek out just a new business or simple contractual relationship.”

This entire situation has reminded me that God holds us all in his palm and loves to hand out second chances.”
