Daywind Records is honored to announce the re-signing of 2X GRAMMY® nominated, 3X GMA Dove Award-winning, and 6X Singing News Soloist of the Year, Joseph Habedank to its family of artists. With more than two decades in partnership with Daywind Records featuring multiple critically acclaimed albums and songs, the re-signing marks a continuation of a relationship that has significantly contributed to the Southern Gospel songbook and broadened to the Church at large. Habedank’s career is marked by his captivating performances and powerful testimony of redemption and forgiveness.

“Daywind is not just a record label to me. They are family. After being on their roster for more than two decades now, it made perfect sense for me to re-sign with them. They signed me to my first record deal as a solo artist when I was only 6 months out of rehab, and I will never forget the chance they took on me. I am so grateful to Ed Leonard, Dottie Leonard, Dusty Wells, and the entire Daywind team for taking a chance on me yet again. The best is yet to come,” says Joseph Habedank.

Dusty Wells, director of artist & label relations at Daywind Records celebrates the re-signing by stating, “Joseph’s unwavering dedication to his gift, his redeeming testimony, and his remarkable talent have always been a perfect match for Daywind Records. Joseph has been with us since the beginning of his career, and we are absolutely thrilled to be able to walk alongside him and continue supporting him throughout his journey. We look forward to witnessing and helping get his music, story, and message out to not only his present fans and friends but helping and watching him garner a new audience along the way. We are so excited to be a part of this next chapter of his illustrious career.”
