1King Music is primarily the vision of Richie Gardiner who has been working in the broadcasting industry for 10 plus years, and a background in working with Youth & Children’s ministry in a discipleship and outreach context.

It’s a new thing. About the artists we adopt not about the label. Adoption is a great thing, and we recognise all the work emerging unsigned artist have done to get them this far. So 1King Music chooses to adopt these quality artists and give them a label behind them to push them forward. We will even stand up for them when they sometimes get things wrong. We want our label to be a safe place to encourage the emerging unsigned artist to protect their mission.

1King Music is about the mission of the artist. A tour is not just a gig but part of something much bigger. Imagine a tour with a mission team doing outreach in a local church setting, helping the church make a big impact in their community. 1King Music partners with the likes of Wildfire teams in Ireland to provide teams that help make a difference in your community. Learning and growing together in the Kingdom of God.

1King Music is founded on christian missional values but with a heart to see people won to Jesus through inspirational music. We believe our artists have influence on their fans and that should be for positive impact and where possible to edge people to know Jesus.
