CANVAS and “My Light” follow the biggest song of Dixon’s career to-date “Build A Boat,” which, at 10 weeks became the longest running No. 1 Mediabase Christian AC song of 2022, also spawning “Build A Boat (feat. Gabby Barrett),” with MULTI-PLATINUM and award-winning Country star Gabby Barrett. Both tracks follow his Atlantic Record’s debut and No.1 song, “Miracles,” which also boasts over 94 million global streams.
Speaking of the CANVAS EP, Dixon notes how “Life is all about perspective – how we view the various seasons that life has to offer. The twins are such a blessing, and when they came, we realized how precious life is. One thing I’ve noticed is that life is better lived with others. Finding someone who brings out the best in you. Someone who will turn your mess into something beautiful. For me, God has been that constant reminder for our family that we don’t have to walk through this life alone. Every day is a blank canvas to live life to the fullest, and to view the world and the people around us in a new light.”
In addition to “My Light” and both versions of “Build A Boat,”CANVAS features four other songs, including the anthemic “Giants,” written and produced by Grammy-nominee Joe London (Jason Derulo, Lizzo, Thomas Rhett), the piano-driven “Hold Onto Hope,” a fire-filled vocal performance on “Unbreakable,” and the delicate title-track, “Canvas.”
ABOUT COLTON DIXON:Colton Dixon turns personal truths, stories, and experiences into universal anthems. He first emerged as a phenomenon after finishing in the top seven on Season 11 of Fox’s American Idol. Delivering a series of fan favorite albums, 2013’s A Messenger achieved “the biggest first-week sales by a new solo Christian act” and catapulted into the Top 15 of the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Billboard Christian Albums Chart, not to mention, joining the iconic company of Harry Connick, Jr. and Billy Joel as a Steinway & Sons artist. A year later, Anchor yielded his third and fourth #1 hits on Christian Hot AC with “More of You” and “Through It All.” In 2017, he returned to #1 on the Christian Albums Chart for the third time.
