How it all began….
Steve Darmody began a concert and recording ministry in 1979 with the recording of Steve’s first CD recorded in Nashville, TN. In 1982 the name, Morning Song, and the logo was adopted and and a greater vision began for Morning Song’s ministry in the field of church and Christian artist ministry. As Steve’s ministry grew, the name Morning Song emerged for a while as an umbrella name that represented Steve Darmody’s ministry as well as a ‘coop’ of like-minded inspirational artists. This allowed Steve the privilege to mentor, train, counsel, manage and aid these artist in developing their personal independent ministries. As time passed, each artist grew into equally successful independent ministries and the need for the coop ended. These artists – Vonda Beerman, Jennifer LaMountain, Rudy Micelli, and James Rainwater – have gone on to establish successful international ministries. While Morning Song, as a coop, is no more, we all, as friends and fellow artists continue to associated through the Morning Song Music Group and continue to work as a family of artists, helping each other, touring together and much more.“Morning Song Music Group” serves our label artists as well as many other artists associated through the eStore, Morning Song Concerts, and other MSMG activities and companies. Many of the same relationship and activities are still in place but in an enlarged form to include other artists. We still work together in shared ministry activities that included shared convention participation, touring with Morning Song Concerts, joint concerts, and investing in mutual advertising and marketing projects. Each artist that has worked with Steve, has contributed significantly to the growth of what is now the Morning Song Music Group. We could not be more appreciative of their contribution.
