Land of Color announces the release of their newest album, “Show Me What It Means,” featuring ten songs. This release comes after their recent single, “Warriors,” which has almost 1.2 million streams just on Spotify.
Land of Color is composed of South Africa native Gary Rea and Colorado-born Thomas Ewing, who were both worship leaders and solo artists who felt like the Lord brought them together to create something unique, something greater than the sum of the parts. Their different cultural and musical backgrounds have resulted in a unique sound that is a blend of African rhythms, singable melodies and tight harmonies. Audiences all over have fallen in love with their unique sound and laid back vibe.
“Land of Color offers just what their name implies: music that paints the sadly, often stagnant CCM landscape with a bold, vibrant palette that brings a sense of refreshed wonder and joy,” said Chris Llewellyn, of Rend Collective.
From those humble beginnings of two worship leaders and friends writing songs together, Land of Color burst onto the scene in 2018 when they were discovered by Tenth Avenue North and Sony/Provident. They quickly signed their first record deal with Remade Records (Tenth Avenue’s imprint label) and it was off to the races. They toured extensively in 2018 and 2019 as a support act to Tenth Avenue North, Rend Collective, Zach Williams, Unspoken and others. They were also invited to play at most of the major festivals around the country, including Spirit West Coast, Fish Fest, Creation Fest, Kingdom Bound, Joyful Noise and more.
Jeff Owen, from Tenth Avenue North and co-writer of their previous single, “Warriors,” said, “If you haven’t heard of Land of Color, they are a band with an honest and unique voice.”
The song, “Show Me What It Means,” featured on the album, showcases Land of Color’s laid back vibe mixed with a powerful message about love. If love is the most powerful force on Earth, if love changes everything, if love is all we need, and if God is love, then we should be asking this question and praying this prayer: Show me what it means to love. And that is exactly what this new single does!
Gary Rea said, “If our lives are going to be marked by love, we’re going to need some help and guidance. How do we live lives that are not merely centered around ourselves, our needs and our desires? How do we put others before ourselves? How do we help others win, even if it means that we may lose?
