- I have or know someone who has a demo - who do I send it to?
We are unable to accept unsolicited demos or music that we haven't asked for from you directly. Typically, the material we select from for our artists is found by our talent scouts, given to us from our publishing company, or other established contacts including producers and songwriters. We encourage you to keep performing and recording.
The GMA Academy can help you get started in the Christian music industry -- for more information check them out under Events at GospelMusic.org.

- There is something wrong with my CD; My CD won't play; I don't like what I bought...
The store or retailer you purchased our product(s) from is staffed by knowledgeable people that can help you with your questions. If they can't help you, they will be able to direct you to those who can. If you are dissatisfied with the product(s) then you would need to negotiate those terms with them.
- Where can I buy your CD's?
Our products are available right here on our website, in the Store section at http://www.wordrecords.com/store/. In addition, our music is distributed by Word Distribution to Christian bookstores, and general market retail chains through WEA Distribution. Check out the Word Distribution website at http://www.worddistribution.com/. You can find almost any Christian bookstore that will carry music by visiting http://cba.know-where.com/cba/. Our music releases are available digitally at iTunes and Amazon MP3 Store.
- I had an old album and want to find it again - does Word have it?
Older Word Records products, if they are still being manufactured, can typically be ordered through your local Christian bookstore. If you have tried there and can't find it, sometimes ebay can be a great resource. Also, Word Records and its sister labels offers the majority of their materials online via iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, and similar Digital Service Providers. You should check there. If you still can't find it, you should go to http://www.worddistribution.com/ and see if it is still in print.
