Major label Provident Distribution announced a partnership today with Pinnacle Entertainment for U.S. and Canadian releases.

“We are pleased to welcome Pinnacle Entertainment to the Provident Distribution family,” states Don Noes, senior vice president of Provident. “We have the privilege of working with some of the highest caliber people in the industry, and Marc Harris (founder and CEO of Pinnacle, 2003) is no exception. We know he will bring his creative expertise to the business side of the label and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with both Marc and Pinnacle.”

The first two projects from Pinnacle, scheduled for release early next year, include the debut album from singer/songwriter Kim Rutherford and Pinnacle Project – Volume 2, featuring well known collaborators of Harris such as BeBe Winans and Michael McDonald.

“As Pinnacle continues creating and fulfilling consumers’ demand for more cutting-edge gospel/Christian music, Provident offers Pinnacle's product line the necessary placement and reach within both the CBA and general retail marketplaces,” says Harris.
