S.O. created a huge buzz in the Christian hip-hop community with the release of the 5 Solas mixtape in 2009. The project is also what caught the ears of executives at Lamp Mode, which led to S.O. signing with the label. Andrew Bello is an exciting, multi-award winning Afrobeats artist and an ambassador of Contemporary Afro Gospel music in the UK.

Though a new comer to the scene, Sarah Teibo is gradually becoming highly sought after in UK Gospel following the release of her debut album 'Walk With Me' this year.

Volney Morgan & New-Ye are recognized in the Gospel world for their dynamic stage presence and remembered for their unified voices when ministering for the Kingdom. With their 2015 EP Pick Up The Pieces still on rotation, plus winning Choir of the Year at Premier Gospel Awards, the director topped it all when his choir performed at the Royal Albert Hall for the 2016 BBC Gospel Proms.
