With its acclaimed roster honored with more New Artist of the Year GMA Dove Awards than any other label since 2013, Centricity Music is intentional about signing, developing, and launching the best new talent the Christian music industry has to offer. The label’s latest success story is RIAA Certified Gold®-selling, Recording Academy-featured Chartbreaker Katy Nichole, who became Centricity Music’s third New Artist of the Year during the 54th Annual GMA Dove Awards.
Nichole’s award follows RIAA Platinum-selling pop recording artist/songwriter Jordan Feliz receiving that trophy in 2016 and multi-Platinum-selling, two-time GRAMMY Award-winning Lauren Daigle garnering the award in 2015. Daigle also picked up her 12th Dove Award for Short Form Music Video of the Year (Concept) for “Thank God I Do” during the awards show.
“Everyone is so excited for Katy and Lauren to be recognized with these GMA awards,” says Centricity Music CEO Caren Seidle. “Lauren’s video is such a special piece of artwork, and it is an honor that others see it that way as well. The New Artist of the Year award recognizes the creativity and the commitment of the entire Centricity staff as well as Katy’s undeniable talent. Winning three awards over the last decade confirms the foundational aspects engraved in the culture at Centricity Music.”
Along with Centricity Music, Centricity Publishing songwriter Kyle Williams gathers a Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year Dove as a producer for TobyMac’s Life After Death.
