Capitol Christian Music Group

Influence Music is an independent artist collective and record label composed of artists Matt Gilman, Melody Noel, Whitney Medina and Michael Ketterer. It was birthed in April of 2017 out of Influence Church in Anaheim Hills, California and is dedicated to the creation and release of music that glories God. The movement attracted some of LA’s most gifted songwriters, producers and creative who laid aside successful careers and high-level positions to help build what Is now “Influence Music”. The collective gained momentum following a five-daywriting retreat in Big Bear, California where the team created over 25 songs together. Their first released was the song “I AM”, which quickly reached over 1 millionviews and 22K shares on Facebook. This immediately caught the attention of TBN and IHeart Radio who have both featured “I AM” on their programming.

Since then, the collective has released a full-length album titled “Touching Heaven” which has been a Spotify favorite, with some of their tracks gaining features on playlists such as“New Music Friday”, “Top Christian” and “Best of Live Worship”. The album released #1 on iTunes, #2 on Billboard Christian Charts, and #7 on Billboard emerging artists.
