Description

Star Song Communications is a Christian record label that was started in 1976 by Wayne Donowho, who recruited his friend Darrell Harris. It gained notoriety when it issued The Resurrection Band's ground-breaking debut album, Awaiting Your Reply, in 1978. Originally a distribution deal was made with Benson Records.

From 1983 until 1986 distribution was done by Word Records. After that, a deal was made with Sparrow Records. Independent distribution was started in 1989 and picked up distribution for ForeFront Records records and DC Talk in 1991. This distribution was maintained until the sale of the company to (#invalid label link ID#) and the launch of Chordant Distribution in 1994.

Pure Metal Records was acquired from Refuge Records in 1990.

In 1998, it was announced that Star Song would only be used to issue reprints and their artists would be transferred to Sparrow.

An alternate history:
Star Song was founded in 1976 in Pasadena by Darrell Harris as a division of Jubilee Communications. The label's office moved several times early on: from several locations in Pasadena to one in Houston. Early distribution was handled by Benson Records until 1983 when the label switched to Word Records, and in 1987 to Tempo Records and relocated to Nashville in 1989.

1994 brought about the sale of the label to EMI Records. Shortly afterwards, Star Song would cease operating as an independent label and become closely associated with Sparrow Records. By 1998, Star Song was relegated to a label imprint of Sparrow for use only on reprints.
