Biography

Land of Color started when two singer/song writers Gary Rea and Thomas Ewing met in the mountains of Montana in 2015. Before the band started, they were both worship leaders and solo artist in their own right but they feel like the Lord brought them together to create something that is unique and greater than the sum of the parts. Gary was born and raised in South Africa and Thomas is from Colorado and their different cultural and musical backgrounds have resulted in a unique sound that is a blend of African rhythms, singable melodies and tight harmonies. 

The guys talk about how the band was birthed out of community and that it was at family gatherings in the early days of their friendship that they would grab their guitars and start writing songs. "The songs came quickly and easily" says Thomas "and they were simply an overflow of what the Lord was doing in our lives individually and as a community." In 2016, they decided to record an album of the songs that they had been writing under the name HOLY MNTN and before long they were getting invites from all over the country for them to perform their music. 

 

 Bryan Duncan has 18 solo albums, featuring 16 number-one radio hits and more than 1.2 million records sold. His music, which spans PopGospel SoulBlues, CCM, Smooth Jazz, and Christmas genres, has garnered numerous awards, including a Grammy. He released seven albums with Sweet Comfort Band and three with the NehoSoul Band.

      Duncan's latest album is Shine. He is doing concerts and releasing videos in support of his new album.
