Come Holy Ghost
In 1988 Artie was discovered by a well known producer who signed him as an artist with Virgin Records. The project showcased his vocal abilities. It also revealed his creative talents, which were tapped to contribute to his first published works - on Motown Records artist Basic Black. Artie was also featured on the Motown release The Hard & Soft by the A. R. B. Says Artie, 'I learned a great deal about the music industry in those days'. And he has certainly put that knowledge to good use. Artie developed his production skills and was featured on several albums. Credits include RCA artist 5XI, Pebbles, Mario Winans and more recently Tamia's debut album. His repertoire includes a wide variety of musical styles. R&B and hip - hop dominate the list, but jazz and gospel influences are also present. For the past ten years Artie Hoyle has been leading praise and worship, first at his home church in Woodstock, Georgia and more recently at Abyssinia Missionary Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida. An accomplished musician and director, Artie is best known for his soul-stirring vocal performances which cause many to wonder aloud where they can find a copy of his music to take home. Now, with the encouragement of his family and friends he is offering up this very personal collection of self-composed music for everyone to enjoy. Artie hopes that his gospel music debut will bless and inspire all who listen, and that this effort will be pleasing in the sight of God.
