Sacred Strings Records Inc. was founded in 2009 by Del Ray and Kelli Grace and later incorporated in August of 2012. The record label is headquartered in Toledo, Ohio and is known as the mecca of Sacred Steel Music & History.
Sacred Strings Records Inc. is also a one of a kind, independent record label designed exclusively to record and preserve compilation albums produced from our annual sacred steel concerts.
It is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that serves as a face and voice for the sacred steel community and is dedicated to exposing, promoting and preserving the legacy of the many pioneers and tradition bearers of the sacred steel movement.
Sacred Strings Records Inc., is the production umbrella in which all of our major events are sponsored under.
We exist to protect the sacred steel tradition from extinction. By reviving this music, we hope to fill the unfortunate void created when our most prominent pioneers and tradition bearers began to pass off the scene with no record or documentation of their musical contributions.
Because of our efforts many tradition bearers will have their rightful place in church history and future generations will be able to appreciate the rich history of sacred steel music.
SSRI, is committed to covering the total sacred steel experience through interviews, Cd & DVD recordings, Hall of Fame inductions, TV programming, photo exhibits, and live performances.
Sacred Strings Records Inc., will possess the largest and most advanced digital repository collection of sacred steel music in the world.
It is our intention to preserve the legacy of sacred steel music and history in digital archive and publicly present the full history of sacred steel in America.
Our archive contains original audio and video, interviews, music files, publicity materials, photographs, film, and articles.
In over two decades we have spent much time and effort acquiring the world’s largest archive of live sacred steel recordings from the 1960’s to the present day. This material is not available anywhere else.
Our entire vault consists of exclusive photos, audio and video recordings.
