TWILA’S DISTRIBUTION DEAL
Back when Twila ParisSmall Sacrifice was first released in 2007, it was only available at shows and within the Lifeway chain. But thanks to a distribution deal with KOCH (also home to Ringo Starr, Sinead O’Connor and many more secular stars), the relatively new adult contemporary collection now lands in stores all across the country. For more about the album straight from the mouth of the famed singer/songwriter, check out this month’s “Reconnecting With…” column on ChristianMusicPlanet.com.

TOOTH & NAIL DEBUT
Anyone who’s done some close research on And Then There Were None will find the band used to write songs within the metal genre. These days the group has completely switched its sound toward the dance/pop genre (Joy Electric anyone?) and has signed with Tooth & Nail Records for its label debut Who Speaks For Planet Earth?

AUGUST BURNS RED RARITIES
Hard rockers August Burns Red may be in between proper studio CDs at the moment, but fans will likely be appeased in the meantime with Lost Messengers: The Outtakes EP (Solid State). Expect a seven-song sampling of b-sides and demos from the band’s 2007 CD, Messengers, including a cover of AC/DC’s “For Those About to Rock (We Salute You),” which is re-titled “To Those About To Rock” on this effort.

JUMPING FOR JOY
She may only be 18, but Joy Lippard actually started her songwriting career at a mere 11 and already scored a first place songwriting victory at GMA Music In the Rockies (in the pop/rock category). On her self-titled debut (KOCH), the introspective tunesmith bears similarities to Joy Williams, Sara Bareilles and Leigh Nash.
