FiveTwenty Presents: RISE Collaboration with BRM & BrodieDaVinci

Life has a way of pulling us down and trying to stop us from reaching the pinnacle of God’s path for us.

It is in these moments where we discover who we are. Do we remain beaten, or do we RISE?

With the latest collaboration between Rapture Ready North artists BRM and BrodieDaVinci, that is exactly the moments that are put under the microscope. The duo partnered with Christian media platform FiveTwenty Collective to release the new single through the FiveTwenty Presents service.

FiveTwenty Presents offers artists the ability to partner with the platform on a music release.

It provides services such as graphic design, marketing, and promotion. As a part of the collaboration of the release of RISE, early access to the record will be available via FiveTwenty Collective’s Audiomack page beginning on Friday, August 5, 2022. The single will release across digital music providers the following week on August 12.

FiveTwenty Collective founder Eric N. Boston had this to say about the release of RISE, “When BRM reached out to me about partnering up on this release, there was no hesitation. He is a guy that we have built a great relationship with over the years. We respect his work ethic and skills as an artist. BRM and BrodieDaVinci have built something special at RRP North and I’m excited to come alongside of them for the drop of RISE. Hopefully this is just the first of many opportunities to work with these guys.”

“We all have stories, a testimony of where we come from,” explains BRM. “It might not always be a quick redemption story. It may be a roller coaster. But it’s time for us all to RISE!”

Tentmaker Music artist A.K.A. Fisher has teamed with Christian media outlet FiveTwenty Collective on the release of his newest single, Gervin.

Writing and producing music since the age of 12, A.K.A. Fisher incorporates an old-school flavor to many of his compositions. He combines hard-hitting beats with lyrics that reflect his Christian faith, using a unique audio experience to promote the gospel of Jesus Christ.

For Gervin, Fisher enlisted the help of fellow artists Xay Hill and Ayomilly to bring a touch of cool to a record that is scorching hot.

Inspired by George “The Iceman” Gervin, one of the best scorers in basketball history, who was always cool, calm, and collected on the court, the trio is claiming victory over the gates of Hell without breaking a sweat. The ease and cool demeanor are possible because Jesus Christ has already won our battle for us. Now THAT’s cold.

The A.K.A. Fisher produced track is initially being released via FiveTwenty Collective Presents, a release partnership available through FiveTwenty Collective that provides creative services to indie, faith-based artists allowing them to do what they do best. Create banging records! 

Gervin drops on December 7, 2021 exclusively on the FiveTwenty Collective Audiomack page. Listen here: audiomack.com/fivetwenty-co
