American Idol's Season 11 finalist Colton Dixon's powerful and iconic voice quickly earned him a loyal and enthusiastic fan following among the shows 20 million viewers that kept him from placing in the bottom three until his last week in the competition. Following a shocking early elimination, Colton hit the road with the other Idol finalists for the American Idol LIVE! Tour, where he performed in front of over 360,000 fans across the country.
Colton's musical journey has been a long time in the making, beginning with piano lessons at seven years old. A lifelong fan of Christian music, Colton remembers his first concert at age 13 performing "I Can Only Imagine" by MercyMe. That's when he knew he had found his calling. With a humble spirit, Colton answers the call, to be a messenger for a purpose greater than himself. His debut album, A Messenger, carries that message of hope and God's unyielding love to a massive audience eager to hear it.

We first met Jenny Simmons as the front-woman for the Dove Award-nominated band Addison Road, but after a successful decade together, the group realized it was time to pursue new dreams. Now, with her solo debut, Simmons takes the next step in becoming exactly who she was meant to be.
Fittingly, The Becoming is about moving forward, taking risks, and trusting God to be there to catch us after those frighteningly big leaps of faith. The songs, each penned by Simmons, are refreshingly authentic, using spare arrangements that highlight the raw honesty of her vocals. Tracks like "Heaven Waits For Me," with its make-the-most-of-each-day message, and "This I Know", a great reminder to put aside our perfectionistic ways, will resonate with anyone and everyone. But it's the anthemic "Broken Hallelujahs" that really highlights how far Simmons has come. She's no longer the idealistic college student who started Addison Road. Her faith has been tested and her Bible is well worn, giving her stories to tell of lessons learned and a God who is more faithful than we could ever imagine.

RED is back with its monstrous fourth album entitled Release The Panic.
Coming off a hugely successful album Until We Have Faces, which saw them achieve no. 1 radio singles (Not Alone, Faceless, Who We Are, Buried Beneath), a massive year on the road tour with Winter Jam, P.O.D., and Thousand Foot Krutch to name just a few, RED is poised to take its high-energy, rocket fuelled music to new heights in 2013.
Release The Panic contains even more guitars, programmed elements, and, if you can believe, it, rocks even harder than ever. Lyrically, RED has always dealt with darker parts of the human experience in a real and authentic way - but always with redemption in view. This album is no different. Song themes include facing our mistakes, facing our mortality, and not being afraid to show our true selves.
RED's zealous fan base is ready for new music and efforts will be made to build anticipation and excitement starting in November with radio singles to Active Rock, CHR, & Rock formats as well as an all new website with glimpses into the new album. RED delivers the rock. RED delivers the message. RED delivers the show. RED delivers what their fans want. RED delivers.

Rather than simply glossing over struggles, Sanctus Real has never been afraid to shine a light on challenges and hardships. On the band's sixth studio album, Run, Sanctus Real have written songs that promise to become encouraging anthems of hope and healing that listeners can cling to in their own trying times. Through both their struggles and victories, the guys in Sanctus Real have come to realize there's only one place to run, and that's into God's arms, and to his word and promises.
The band continues to build on their best-selling and 2010 Grammy® nominated album, Pieces of a Real Heart, that carried the breakthrough song of their career. "'Lead Me' was a cry from the heart that resounded with families everywhere. We've devoted the better part of our lives writing songs that we pray will matter. Hearing countless stories of how God can use a song has been both humbling and inspiring," says frontman Matt Hammitt.
It's songs like "Lead Me" and the first single from Run, "Promises", that have a way of finding people exactly where they are, songs that can't simply be fabricated out of thin air but rely upon the life story of a band that wears their heart on their sleeve.
"Lead Me", spent nine full weeks at no. 1 and became 2010's no. 7 most downloaded Christian song and #8 most played song at Christian radio.

Ft. Worth-based singer-songwriter Kyle Sherman recently signed on as the flagship artist to brand new label RayLynn Records, an opportunity that presented itself during a time period when a record deal wasn't even on his radar.
"It's crazy how God works," Kyle says. "Five years ago, I pushed pretty hard to do my own thing as a singer-songwriter, but every well I approached would dry up. It clearly wasn't the right time." So Kyle continued on a path of leading worship, taking on a full-time role as worship leader at Lifechurch.tv's Ft. Worth campus under the leadership of renowned pastor/author Craig Groeschel.
Just three years later, Kyle made it back to Nashville, pouring his heart into a microphone at a Sony studio with veteran producer and country singer-songwriter Mark Collie making his first album. God is faithful. Hear Me, the result of those sessions, is an eclectic and authentic mix of rootsy, southern soul.
RayLynn Records is founded by Major League Baseball's Texas Rangers owners Bob and Janice Simpson.
The album is produced by Mark Collie.

There comes a time in every artist's career where they need to re-imagine, re-invigorate, and dream it all over again. For Third Day, that time was in the fall of 2011. Their touring was never better, their album Move was successful, the fans we super-engaged, and yet they felt it was time to shake things up. As they prepared to write and record their 16th album, Miracle, the band hired legendary producer Brendan O'Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, The Fray, Train) to help them forge a new sound. From the opening track, "Hit Me Like A Bomb", it is clear that Third Day means business when they say they want to bring something new to the table.
Musically, there are sounds that have never been on a Third Day album including layered guitars, layered harmonies, and sing-a-long gang vocals. Music styles range from pulsating rock to acoustic pop-rock, yet the classic Third Day sound everyone loves is still there but refreshed and rejuvenated. Lyrically, the themes are relevant for our culture today. Songs about pressing on in difficult times (Your Love Is Like A River, I Need A Miracle), praying for change (Hit Me Like A Bomb, Believe In Something), and hope for better times (The Victory, Take Me Back).
The first single, "I Need A Miracle" goes for adds September 17th and will be supported with promo tours to radio and retail. Third Day will headline a major Spring 2013 tour and play all major summer festivals. The lead up to the album release on November 6 will feel like a major event to excite fans and build towards a blockbuster street week leading right into the holiday shopping season.

Flyleaf comes full circle on New Horizons, their third full-length album for A&M/Octone. The platinum selling hard rock outfit blazes with a fresh fire and uncontainable energy. Marching to heavenly melodies and incendiary guitars, the group - James Culpepper [drums], Sameer Bhattcharya [guitar, vocals], Jared Hartmann [guitar], Lacey Sturn [vocal] and Pat Seals [bass, vocals] - arrives at another dawn.
There's always hope around the corner. When the night is darkest, sunrise is brightest. Through the toughest trials and tribulations come the best rewards. For every death, there is a birth. At the end of the day, life remains built on cycles beyond our control.
Flyleaf finished touring late 2010 behind their second offering, Memento Mori, and took a break. Throughout 2011, they were writing for what would become their next record. "It was simply about writing and seeing what happened. There was so much freedom in that," Jared exclaims. Sameer excitedly echoes that sentiment. "There was more of a natural feeling, and there were absolutely no boundaries or rules. We've grown as songwriters. It's nothing we try to force. We let the songs be themselves."
At the start of 2012, the band regrouped in Los Angeles with long-time producer Howard Benson [Bon Jovi, My Chemical Romance] to record New Horizons. Having built an unshakable trust with the musicians, Benson captured them in moment, preserving the urgency of the initial tracks without tinkering or altering the initial blueprint much.

Five-time Dove Award winners Group 1 Crew have come through a handful of challenges over the past few years as they have been preparing their new album Fearless. From the departure of Pablo to the loss of singer Blanca's father in November of 2011, to the joys and trials of being newlyweds while dealing with a constant touring schedule including the biggest tour in the world (Winter Jam 2012), Group 1 Crew has gone through it and have emerged on the other side with a message for their fans.
Fearless, their fourth studio album, takes fans on a purposeful journey to encounter the truths that Manwell and Blanca have come face-to-face with over the past few years. The title track declares the message Group 1 Crew wishes to convey on this album that "If You're with me, who can be against me? I have no reason to fear." The soaring ballad "Steppin' Out" reminds listeners that it's not too late to take a chance... that the Maker of their dreams will make a way if it's what He's called them to.
While Group 1 Crew takes the lyrical content of Fearless to a significant new level of depth, they remain true to their signature rap/hip-hop/dance infused style while opening the door to an entirely new fan-base through Christian AC radio with tracks like "He Said" featuring Chris August.

Releasing August 14th, Kings & Queens is the highly anticipated label debut from well-known songwriter and worship leader Eddie Kirkland.
As music director and worship leader at one of the largest and most influential churches in the country, North Point Community Church in Atlanta, Eddie is deeply connected with the current pulse of worship music. Kings & Queens contains songs that resonate both congregationally and personally.
Worship Leader Magazine recently commented on Kirkland's most recent EP, Here + Now (which contained four of the songs on Kings & Queens): "Within an overall palate of modern rock, Kirkland covers a lot of ground - there's unusual instrumentation, aggressive riffing, acoustic intimacy, electronic sequencing, the whole deal... Here's hoping for a full-length project in the future." The full-length project is here, and Kings & Queens delivers a fresh take on Christian music for worshippers and listeners alike.

Known for their creativity, House of Heroes has always taken pride in their ability to blend the experimental and the quirky into hooky, classic-rock-influenced anthems. But with Cold Hard Want, the band has taken the gloves off. It is as immediate, as candid, and as vulnerable as anything the Switchfoots and Anberlins of the world have released to date.
"It takes a lot of cold hard want to just persevere and continue believing in rock n' roll. And if it is dead and we're just fools on the sinking ship, that's fine. We're happy to go out that way." Tim Skipper, House of Heroes

"I won't be caged to the status quo. I'm not afraid to stand and say what people won't." This lyric, taken from the song "Get Up Get Out", off of Rhett Walker Band's debut album, Come To The River, is one of several clues that this is not going to be your typical Christian music band or album. With a bold message reminiscent of Rich Mullins, Keith Green plus contemporaries including Casting Crowns and southern and rock influences like Third Day, NEEDTOBREATHE, The Black Crowes and Tom Petty, Rhett Walker Band not only stands out among the pack but once heard, cannot be forgotten.
The songs on Come To The River have a raw honesty not usually heard and cover relatable themes of grace, redemption and mercy. The album's first single, "When Mercy Found Me", tells Rhett's story of a life headed in a wrong direction compounded with choices that were breaking him which share how mercy and grace radically changed his path and gave him freedom. Other stand-out songs include the opener, "Gonna Be Alright", the haunting, "Brother" and the title track, "Come To The River."
Rhett Walker Band knows you have to work hard and that nothing is handed to you. Upon release, the band will be hitting the road playing numerous summer festivals, including Rock The Universe and then head out on a 35 city fall tour. Rhett Walker understands grace; he's been a recipient of mercy. He loves God, his family and his country.
