Nashville, Tenn. – Indie Extreme/Black Shoe Records recording artist Matt Brouwer’s latest CD, Where’s Our Revolution, produced by Grammy award-winning producer, Michael Omartian, has received nominations for two Covenant Awards by the Gospel Music Association Canada. Brouwer’s first single Beautiful Now, from the just released album Where’s Our Revolution, was nominated for Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year. Matt was also nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year. Winners will be announced during the organization’s annual awards ceremony in Calgary on Oct. 24.

Brouwer will participate in the Canadian GMA week festivities including leading at the kick off “Worship Night” concert at Calgary’s First Alliance Church, speaking at the music and songwriting seminars, and performing “Beautiful Now” at the Covenant Awards Night ceremonies.

“I’m thrilled to be nominated for a Covenant Award and to perform at both the GMA Canada’s opening kick-off concert and the Covenant Awards Show,” said Brouwer, who released the single in June of 2008 throughout North America and has watched it rise to #1 on both the CRW Global AC and CanCon Pop/Contemporary charts.

Brouwer’s has previously landed hits on the Billboard CCM records chart (I Shall Believe); CCM CHR chart (Water); and the New Music Weekly Hot 100, AC, Indie AC, and Top 40 charts (Surrender). Where’s Our Revolution, marks a huge step forward for Brouwer, being hailed by critics as an artistic and production bench mark for the artist. The success of Beautiful Now points to a very successful run as the album is full of radio friendly pop singles.

Black Shoe Records is the first label that Indie Extreme has signed to a management deal.

“It’s an honor working with Matt and his independent label, Black Shoe Records,” said Indie Extreme CEO Kathy Douglas. “The Where’s Our Revolution CD has been a result of years of preparation and growth in Matt, both as a writer and musician. He is a unique individual with a clear yet gently confrontational message to his generation, one of love, hope and authenticity.”
