Frontline Records is home to over 100 recording artists. It became an important label in the development of the West Coast Christian alternative music scene. Their roster included what 7ball magazine would later refer to as “truly classic alternative, rap, metal, and rock” music and HM editor Doug Van Pelt would call “the lion’s share” of classic hard Christian music.
It was founded in 1986 by Jimmy Kempner in Santa Ana, CA and purchased by Killen Music Group (Nashville, TN) in 1998. Some new artists were added on the KMG label until 2002. In 2010, under the direction of Meis Music Group, KMG & Frontline resurfaced with over 300 albums digitally re-worked and prepared for the consumer who just can’t live without this legendary music.
