Indieheaven is now closed as of April 9, 2019. Thank you to all who supported the organization and website since 2002. Unfortunately, with the website code being 12+ years old, technology has moved on and we did not have sufficient resources to do a complete re-write of the massive amounts of code, and conduct a full redesign.
However, we hired a new tech company early January, 2019 to update the code to make the existing site compatible with the numerous devices people utilize to view content on the WWW, and move us to a secure server. After 4 months of trying, it is apparent that this upgrade is not possible. They simply were not able to do what we hired them to do.
I also realized that most of our members have either stopped pursuing their music mission, or they have moved on to other services. After much prayer, it is best to pull the plug on Indieheaven now.
With that stated, “Being Independent, Together” we kept the lights on non-stop for 17 years (21 including BrokenRecords.com) without ever having an investor!
It was a miracle we were able to stay online all these years! We survived numerous hacking attempts, had to move servers a few times, held our breaths and said a prayer as the various elements that we used on the website were updated (PhP/MySql, Apache, C-Panel, Authorize.net) and each time, the site kept working! At this time, we ran up against a giant that we could not kill. We are dissapointed, but grateful for the mission and opportunity to serve so many wonderful musicianaries!

Rhonda Funk ~ Crazy to think that 17 years later I can honestly say that I was one of those first artists on Indieheaven! Who would know that this little girl from the Pacific NW would end up later moving Nashville to pursue her dreams after originally introducing the world to her songs through the IndieHeaven platform???? And here I am, living in Nashville three albums later still being blessed by you through the opportunities you provide songwriters/artists through Nashville Rising Song. Crazy to see how God has used each piece of our obedience over the decades to bring us to where we are today. Thank you for your dreams, ambitions, and investments that have help change, mold and grow mine! You have provided something that changed the course of my future, and for that I’m grateful!!
David Michael Carrillo ~ Wow!!! I was there from the start. Thank you Keith for giving us Indie artist a voice so we could be heard.
