LIGHTNING RELEASES: New York, New York (8/18/2014) – Imagine powerful songs that ignite a spirited movement of love and squashes violence. LovelIke Violence is a Christian rock band from Canton, Ohio with a heart for accomplishing this mission. They have already gained a faithful following of fans that relish in their music videos and travel across miles to witness their high-energy performances. Their unified vision is to use their engaging music and captivating lyrics to pour out a stream of peace until it’s scattered across the world.
This grassroots music group has high hopes for their soon to be released single and upcoming breakout album. With numerous YouTube videos and a strong social media presence, LoveLike Violence has already begun working on making their vision of peace a reality. The comparisons that have been made to top-tier groups such as Evanescene and Paramore are flattering to the band, but they understand that their commitment to their music and its message needs to reach existing fans and naysayers alike.
Akil Brown is the founder and CEO of Eturnal Entertainment LLC, whose focus rests solely on the overall development and needs of the artist. Eturnal Entertainment LLC is a registered organizational member of the GMA (Gospel Music Association), RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), The Harry Fox Agency, and ASCAP (American Society of Composers). Not only does Eturnal focus on optimal artist development but also equally in creating a platform that is strong and long-term. Akil has held several key positions within Sony Music Entertainment. These areas of expertise include: production, marketing and advertising, serving as the Associate Producer for Sony Music’s Video & Content department as well as Production Manager of Arcade Creative Group (a business unit of Sony Music Entertainment).
Brown has achieved many professional awards that include: winning the Platinum Pixie Award, Silver Telly Awards, Bronze Telly and the Internet Advertising Awards. Commenting on his faith Brown said that the band would soar to great heights while carrying out their faith-based mission all over the world.
Brown shared his background with the group – “I met LoveLike Violence about two years ago and pitched them to every industry professional I knew.” He continued by stating that some doubt this group’s crossover appeal, but he believes in their vision and has put his energies behind them. When asked why he started a label to sign LoveLike Violence, he said, “ He understands the challenges new artist go through, but it’s even harder for Christian artist. Major labels won’t take chances on new artist that don’t fit a particular mold or sound and Christian music is not a huge money making market. After meeting my childhood mentor Mr. Clive Davis, he told me if you believe in them then you must fight for the world to believe too.”
He closed out his comments by sharing, “I wanted to help someone else achieve their dream like Organized Noize, Dallas Austin, and Sony Music gave me. So I committed myself to do whatever possible to help them succeed and live their dreams like I have lived mine.”
The Chairman of the Ohio Alive Festival commented after seeing LoveLike Violence perform. “The high-energy stage shows, combined with the many powerful songs, make LoveLike Violence a must-see live band!”
LoveLike Violence is committed to communicating their joy, love of music, and GOD’s love to the masses as they empty out their gifts through song.
