Inpop Records is an independent contemporary Christian music record label based in Franklin, Tennessee, U.S. It was launched in July 1999 by Australians Peter Furler, Dale Bray, and Wes Campbell. The name was derived from the idea of wanting to highlight the talents of international pop artists, though they have signed an equal number of American artists.

History[edit]

When former Newsboys lead singer Peter Furler and the band's manager Wes Campbell first came to the United States in the 1980s, they had no intention of owning a record label. A decade later, Furler decided he was tired of sharing his tour bus bunk with hundreds of demos piled high, all given to him from artists he met on tour. Deciding to do something about it, he and Campbell and Australian Businessman Dale Bray launched Inpop Records in July 1999. Inpop's stated goal is to discover the best artists around the world that understand the grace of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and who also have something new and unique to offer the world of Christian music.

"Traveling the globe, we've seen thousands of bands and artists. We have a calling to give these musicians the same opportunity Newsboys were given," says Furler.[citation needed]
