(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) – Bema Media has announced the signings of singer-songwriter Lara Landon and Canadian rockers Manic Drive, whose upcoming album will be released through a partnership with Whiplash Records. With these new acquisitions, Bema Media is expanding beyond their current teen/tween roster that includes such popular acts as Mission Six, Jasmine, The Rubyz and the iShine Tour.

Manic Drive's latest release Blue will hit stores on August 18th, followed by Landon's debut album Beloved on September 22nd. Both releases will be distributed through Provident-Integrity Distribution, a unit of SONY Music Entertainment.

As one of Canada's most popular Christian bands, Manic Drive earned a record seven GMA Canada Covenant Award nominations this year, taking home two awards for Rock Album of the Year and Video of the Year. Their hit single “Blue” is the first single from the upcoming album, and the accompanying music video has climbed to #2 on Gospel Music Channel's rock video chart. Manic Drive will be touring throughout the summer, including main stage performances at Ichthus Festival, SoulFest, Uprise Festival, Unity Christian Music Festival, Rock the Desert and JoshuaFest.

Lara Landon's debut album was produced by multiple GRAMMY® Award winning producer Michael Omartian (Christopher Cross, Amy Grant, Whitney Houston, Rod Stewart). Landon's songs are full of life and meaning, and Omartian helped to find the right combination of sweeping string arrangements and quiet piano to create the perfect background for Landon's musings about the grandeur and the intimacy of a relationship with a loving God. With instant comparisons to artists like Plumb, Imogen Heap and Tori Amos, Landon's debut is certain to resonate with listeners looking for music that means something.
