Mandeville is one of Christian music's most acclaimed songwriters, writing and producing hits for artists such as Avalon, 4HIM, Point of Grace, and Tammy Trent, among others. Prior to his 2009 solo hit “Glorify,” Mandeville was awarded six certified Gold Records, wrote multiple #1 songs, and was nominated for three Dove Awards for Song of the Year with “Jesus Will Still Be There,” which was included in CCM Magazine’s 100 Greatest Songs in Christian Music.

After several years of silence, 2009 marked the beginning of a solid new relationship with radio and the music scene for solo artist/songwriter/producer John Mandeville, and his I.P.O. Records indie imprint.

Mandeville found a strong show of support at radio for his debut single Glorify. In the States, this first single from his solo debut titled We Belong To Heaven spent 14 weeks in the Top 10, climbing to #2 on the U.S. Billboard Soft A/C charts. Glorify ended the year as one of Christian Music Weekly’s Inspirational Top 10 songs in 2009.
Mandeville’s video single for Glorify also aired on all major Christian Music video shows including JCTV, Gospel Music Channel and Daystar TV.
As the year closed, Mandeville’s debut project We Belong To Heaven was honored with an Independent Music Awards nomination for Contemporary Christian Album of the year, which he later won at the turn of 2010.

The 2009 Holiday season brought John another unexpected gift - his second Top 5 single for the year. Mandeville’s first Christmas single, Christmas Is You, found immediate support, climbing to #3 in only four weeks on Christian Music Weekly’s 2009 Christmas Chart; soaring among 200+ current Christmas singles.

Mandeville’s highly-anticipated follow up single Who Is Like You Lord was serviced to radio in July 2010, expanding his reach and momentum. (email radio@ipo-records.com).
