Releases by Marshall Hall, First Call expected.

Discovery House Music, a division of RBC Ministries in Grand Rapids, Mich., is set to launch its own distribution arm, Discovery House Distribution, on July 1,

"Over the past fifteen years, we have grown to the point where we feel we can best serve the retail industry by contacting them directly rather than working through another sales organization," Brian Felten, executive producer for Discovery House Music, said in a statement.

One of the first new releases to go through Discovery House Distribution will be the first solo effort by the Gaither Vocal Band's Marshall Hall, "Boundless," due August 15.

In September, the original members of acclaimed vocal trio First Call will release their first full-length CD in more than 15 years. The band is currently in the studio finishing up a new a cappella project tentatively titled "Rejoice."

Other upcoming releases include new projects from Larnelle Harris, Wintley Phipps, and Brooklyn Tabernacle vocalist Damaris Carbaugh. Discovery House is also working on a new praise and worship product line.

In addition to distributing Discovery House product, Fenton says they are looking to distribute other product as well.
