Nashville, Tenn. (TBD) – Ending their brief 2-year hiatus following, the Generation Exodus Foundation has re-launched with the assistance of James “Jamie” Nixon. After more than 7 years as the Director of Touring and Marketing at Blackhawk Audio, Nixon joins Generation Exodus as General Manager alongside president Kevin Braun.
"While working at Blackhawk Audio, Jamie provided production for many of the Christian music industry's biggest artists, including Skillet, Casting Crowns, Tobymac, and For King and Country," remarked Braun. "We are incredibly fortunate to have him join our team at Generation Exodus and are excited about our future together."
As a registered Nonprofit Public Charity, the Generation Exodus Foundation has promoted events in 24 states with some of the highest selling hard ticket dates in Christian music touring. Including in excess of 10,000 people for both Chris Tomlin and TobyMac, and Casting Crowns at nearly 13,000 tickets sold. Located outside of Pittsburgh, PA, Generation Exodus also promotes events that are free of charge.
August 2015 marks the foundation's official relaunch, including a self-branded “Club Tour” in major markets in partnership with Capitol Christian Music Group. Kicking off in November, the club tour will feature DJ Promote, Capital Kings, and NF. Generation Exodus will be producing and promoting the “Resolution 2016” tour for early next year. More details to be announced soon.
"I am very excited about this opportunity with Generation Exodus," commented Nixon. "I have worked with the foundation several times in the past and I've always admired what Genex was committed to accomplishing. My passion is to lead Generation Exodus beyond being a normal concert promotion company. We want to align GEF with people who still believe that together we can change the world."
