JLT Records / About
Brian Danter comes from a gold album selling, classic rock band from Canada called Teaze. Teaze had 5 great albums and experienced their greatest success in Japan. After leaving the band due to personal convictions of faith, he accepted a call to ministry as a worship leader for 25 years. Now equipped and wanting to reach out to those he once left behind... he's back.
He has teamed up with a friend and musical compatriot named Jael over the last 30 years. They have been writing together, asking God for the timing and the right project and Traitors Gate spans the entire time, representing all changes from the days of pure classic rock (in those days known as heavy metal) to a few brief nods to current production values. More of this progress is yet to be seen in the sequels. Wicket Gate and Heaven's Gate are coming.
The performing band Danter includes the next generation, including both children and cousins and may have up to 5 Danters on stage. Staging and effects have been designed by Dynamic Displays, a company that has done work for Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, Chicago and the Grateful Dead among many others. The band Jael has anywhere from 8 members down to solo performances. They come from the current roster of studio musicians we regularly call on but Jael and Danter are fixtures in the JLT firmament.
And now I get to reveal more exciting news. Featured on this page is our drummer Iven's band called Salt of the Chief Cornerstone. Salt is a two piece, Brandon & Iven and is an act that stands out in a world where too many people imagine themselves to be artists... but don't take my word for it. We are posting a track.
In fact all of the artists on our page have been working interchangeably through each other's bands much the way the Funk Brothers, the Wrecking Crew and the Muscle Shoals bands did. The label is Canada's unknown Christian music refuge. We take those needing a home, artistic freedom, and have put enough ego aside to be part of the team.
