Dissonant Reverberation Records (D.R) is an independent Gospel record label, hailing from Winston-Salem, North Carolina founded by Taylor Oliphant in 2016. The name is a representation of a supernatural move by God. The definition of dissonant is “harsh” or “clashing.” The definition of reverberation is “the action of a created sound being built and absorbed by objects in the space of the sound created.” Dissonant is a metaphor for clashing with anything that is not of God; the reverberation is God’s spirit, which is within our music, building in the atmosphere and absorbing within the audience of those who (appointed by Him) listen to our music.
The goal of D.R is to enlighten, uplift and motivate all who need a helping hand or motivation. This company is founded heavily on the foundation of God’s principles; inner strength, love and compassion for one another. Our goal is to ensure that all parties involved are encouraged to seek Christ with their whole heart and follow his teachings. We are here to¬ spread the gospel of Jesus Christ through praise and worship. ¬¬¬We plan to be innovators, utilizing our different gifts and talents that God has given us to praise Him, worship Him and give Him the glory.
