Capitol Christian Music Group announces the debut LP from award-winning singer/songwriter Dan Bremnes. Titled Where The Light Is, the album is set to release Tuesday, June 9, and is the follow-up to his April EP of the same name. Featuring 11 tracks, the record will include six new songs, his first radio hit “Beautiful” as well as his current single “Where The Light Is.” Bremnes’ music video for “Where The Light Is” will premiere with Christian Post Wednesday, June 10.
Bremnes’ desire for Where The Light Is is to be a collection of songs that people can relate to and make their own. “My hope and my prayer is that these songs will reach people,” states Bremnes. “I want to make music because I believe God uses music to reach His people’s hearts. I hope that these songs can speak to people and be a part of their journey and be a blessing in people’s lives.” Last week CCM Magazine had an exclusive stream of the full album.
Since Bremnes released his debut single “Beautiful” in 2014 with Capitol CMG, the Canadian-born artist has achieved numerous honors. He won four awards at the 36th Annual GMA Canada Covenant Awards show for Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Pop/Contemporary Song and Recorded Song of the Year for “Beautiful”. The song, which was the biggest radio add week of any new artist in Capitol CMG history, also peaked at No. 14 on the National Christian Audience Chart and garnered over 4.8 million impressions weekly.
Bremnes has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Along with appearing on Crowder’s Neon Steeple Tour this spring, he supported Steven Curtis Chapman on the 2014 Canadian “The Glorious Unfolding Tour,” joined labelmate Josh Wilson on a U.S. tour last fall, and was recently a part of the “Here For You Tour” with The Afters and Hawk Nelson. He just wrapped up “The Burn Bright & Beautiful Tour” with Starfield’s Jon Neufeld where they visited 11 cities across western Canada. Bremnes will continue touring this summer in support of his new album and will be on Tenth Avenue North’s fall tour, which will also be joined by Sidewalk Prophets.

ABOUT DAN BREMNES: When this singer and songwriter from Salmon Arm, British Columbia was just ten years old, he played drums at his local church while also learning guitar and discovering a passion for songwriting. As years passed it was a six-month missions trip in Australia with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) that re-shaped his perspective: “While I was there, something happened in my life, and God started working on my heart,” Bremnes shares. “I started thinking about making music that was really intentional about reaching people on a spiritual level. I wanted to come right out and speak about God and my relationship with Him.”
As he was pursuing his professional dreams, Bremnes’ faced the tragic news that his mother was killed in a car accident. An event that truly turned his life upside down, there was no better way to honor his mother’s memory than by throwing himself wholeheartedly into music. He began to share his songs with anyone who’d listen and continued to hone his songwriting craft. It wasn’t long before people took notice. In his career to date, Bremnes has collected a host of awards and accolades as well as No. 1’s in Canada, eventually attracting the attention of Nashville’s Capitol Christian label.
