After making a surprising No. 1 debut last week on the Christian Billboard album chart with the release of Every Nation, Lindy Conant & The Circuit Riders is holding towards the top of the album chart this week at No. 2, while jumping three spots to No. 6 on Billboard's independent album chart. Lindy Conant & The Circuit Riders was also featured on Billboard.com last week, touting the success of their chart-topping album.
A previously unknown independent worship artist, this significant charting has been a surprise to the industry but not to RMA (Rogue Music Alliance), the team behind Lindy Conant. RMA, the brainchild of worship industry mainstays Gabriel Wilson and David Staley and fueled only by Wilson's production, Staley's social media marketing hackery, and grassroots word of mouth momentum from the Circuit Riders, Every Nation also debuted on the Billboard Top 200 and at No. 19 on the Billboard Digital Albums Charts - completely independent of physical retail distribution.
Every Nation was produced by Gabriel Wilson (Bethel Music, KXC, John Mark McMillan), mixed by Sam Gibson (UNITED, Delirious, etc.), marketed by David Staley and released in partnership with RMA. The members of Conant's band, The Circuit Riders, are Gem Ceniza, Spencer Brennt, Chloe Brennt, Daniel Bryan and Kendall Fowler.
