Mormon Music is a new interactive website that was designed with the music enthusiast in mind, to bring listeners the best in music by upcoming, as well as, seasoned Mormon artists. While lds.org/music is the official website of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with hymns and children's music, used officially by the Church, MormonMusic.org takes visitors on an exciting musical journey as they explore the many avenues of the Mormon music scene.
Artists Featured on Mormon Music
Visitors to the site will discover that “Mormon Music” is more than another rest stop along the information superhighway to listen to Church hymns. Here they’ll discover a melting pot of LDS music artists with varying backgrounds, music styles, and genre selections. More than 170 Mormon artists are already profiled on the site, and more are being added regularly. Some of the featured artists include Nik Day, James the Mormon, David Osmond, David Archuleta, Lindsey Stirling, Alex Boyé, Anna Richey, Bryce Romney, Yahosh Bonner, Jennifer Thomas, Monica Scott, Belle Jewel, Eclipse 6, The Five Strings, Jason Lyle Black, and Marj Desius, to name but a few. Other Mormon artists have expressed their interest in being a part of Mormon Music and will be profiled on the website soon. Some of our most recent additions include rising artists Payton Kemp, a young actor and a singer from American Fork, Utah, and Reese Oliveira, a young soprano who sings with the ever popular One Voice Children's Choir.
Features of Momon Music.org Website
Features of the new Mormon Music.org website include:

Submitting Material to Mormon Music
The key to remember is that all submissions must be clean and “family friendly” – that includes members of the family from the oldest to the youngest. We hope that LDS artists will find “Mormon Music” a fun venue for promoting their music and that they will want to submit some of their own material to help enhance the website.
We also hope that, even though all our featured artists are LDS, fans of all faiths will drop by to visit with their favorite LDS artists.
One thing that all the artists have in common is that their goal is to produce music that is uplifting and has a positive message.
Welcome one and all to Mormon Music!
