Solo Volume 2 is here!!! Subscribe To My News (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

hey there. wanted to make a quick announcement that Solo Volume 2 is done & now available right here on Indieheaven. It's a 7 song collection of very acoustic tunes. I played a 1905 Steinway & Sons piano. Basically just sat down at the piano & sang the songs & hit record. Very cool way to make a record. I hope you enjoy it as much as i do. Really pleased with the way that it came out.

thanks so much for listening & downloading. thanks especially for supporting independent christian artists.

all the best,

The Love of Jesus - Indie Song of the Year 2011 Subscribe To My News (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

NEW YORK, Feb. 2, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Dave Pettigrew with his current single "The Love of Jesus" has been selected as the Grand Prize winner in the Indieheaven Indiesong 2011 Song of the Year contest. The contest was based on a combination of fan voting, and critical review from a large panel of song expert judges from the CCM Industry and Indiestry including former VP of publishing for WORD, Cindy Wilt Colville, Brad Matthias of BEMA MEDIA, Mark Giles of Hit Radio Promo, and many more.

"I'm honored to be involved with an organization like Indieheaven, they have a true heart for the independent Christian artist by equipping and helping us take our ministries further," says Dave.

Dave Pettigrew is an independent Christian recording artist from New Jersey. His multiple releases show that he is a consistent and lyrically wide-reaching breath of fresh air in Christian music as he pursues his ongoing ministry mission through song to bring the "rubber meets the road" realities of everyday life into focus with God.

His previous single "There Is Hope" has been played nationally on stations like KLOVE and Sirius XM's "The Message" and was featured in hundreds of churches across the nation for the 10th anniversary of September 11th.

The Rhode Island born singer/songwriter adds this accolade to a long list of others. He was selected among the Top 20 new emerging artists in contemporary Christian music, has opened for the likes of Mercyme, Addison Road, Thousand Foot Krutch, Lincoln Brewster, Tenth Avenue North and Mark Schultz. He's also a World Vision Artist Associate & a worship leader at his home church, Liquid Church, in New Jersey.
