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 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 and DC Talk in 1991. This distribution was maintained until the sale of the company to EMI and the launch of Chordant Distribution in 1994.[1]

Pure Metal Records was acquired from Refuge Records in 1990.[2]

In 1998 it was announced that Star Song would only be used to issue reprints and their artists would be transferred to Sparrow.[1]
