Christian Urban/Dance Pioneer Chuckie Perez Signs With Tag Artist Group
15 August 2005

Christian urban/dance pioneer Chuckie Perez has inked a deal with Christian music's fastest growing upstart TAG Artist Group. Originally scheduled for release last May through another distributor, Perez decided to delay the release and pursue a partnership with TAG.

Beginning his career as "Chuckie P", the California-based artist helped open the doors for urban artists in Christian music. Releasing English and Spanish-language projects on a variety of labels including Essential and Diadem/Benson, Perez toured the U.S. with artists like dcTalk and the Newsboys, and launched numerous tours internationally.

In recent years, Perez has been busy penning tracks for immensely popular network television shows including One Life to Live, All My Children and notable programming throughout Italy. He also penned and recorded the title track for Before I Wake, the biopic of slain rapper Tupac Shakur. In addition to his successful music career, Perez pastors West Coast Community Church in Fontana, California.

It's been nearly ten years since Christian music fans last heard from Perez, so it’s no wonder that his forthcoming release A Page From My Life has been met with so much anticipation.

"I accomplished a lot in the first phase of my career," says Perez. "And I'm coming back from a genuine place, hoping someone else may be encouraged or inspired. I want to be authentic. It's time for the next chapter."

In addition to the September 27th release of the A Page From My Life CD, TAG is releasing A Page From My Life: The Process, a DVD that takes fans into the studio for a behind-the-scenes look at the recording process. The DVD also includes exclusive interview footage and home videos of the Perez family's vacation in London.

Marketing highlights include advance copies of the CD and DVD to key media outlets, radio promotion to multiple formats, and numerous television appearances including JC-TV and The Jim Bakker Show. A music video for the song "My People" has also been shot and will be distributed to Christian music video outlets in September.

Perez joins the TAG roster alongside such artists as Clay Crosse, Bryan Duncan, Phil Keaggy, Leon Patillo, Steve Archer, Kent Bottenfield, Joy Oliver, Chronos, Substance and Bruce Carroll.

“When I first heard Chuckie's new project, I was stunned by the production quality and taken in by the lyrics," says Dan Huisinga, President of TAG Artist Group. "After meeting this gifted artist, I knew TAG would be proud to promote him to our partners at Christian retail.”

TAG Distribution is a subsidiary of TAG Artist Group, LLC. The company was formed in 2004 by industry veteran Dan Huisinga, whose broad experience includes a recording contract with Warner Bros., and his previous role of Director of International Sales and Marketing for Provident Distribution. TAG is a part of his continuing personal mission statement, "To increase the sales and marketing of Christian music throughout the world."
