About Lecrae

Lecrae relishes his purpose-driven career arc as inspired ‘catalyzer’ - going “from artist to architect” on the new album, widening the close-knit comfort zone of Reach Records (the label he co-founded) by partnering with Columbia Records and expanding his creative outreach. “I sought influences and collaborators I never imagined I’d have the opportunity to work with,” he says. The patient growth process was born out of a “gumbo” of more than 50 songs, “some to just get off my chest,” he says - “I don’t know if they were all meant to be heard but I know they were meant to be written.”

One song that has already seen the light of day is the powerfully uplifting “Blessings,” (featuring Ty Dolla $ign) which iHeartRadio chose for their ‘On The Verge’ platform which connects breaking artists with new listeners. Lecrae cites a refreshed perspective throughout the making of the new album after surviving one of the most tumultuous years he’s experienced since his turbulent teens. Among the hardships was the passing of his longtime friend and collaborator DJ Official, some “painful personal” ramifications after the publication of the unvarnished‘Unashamed,’ trusting friendships that went south, andchronic social media sparring from those attacking Lecrae for his candid and heartfelt perspective in response to theheartbreaking social justice issues making headlines in 2016. “Some people felt that maybe I shouldn’t be articulating the pain when it comes to the structural and systemic issues that have created barriers and disparity in regard to race,” he says. “But I came out of it feeling more confident in making this album then at any other time in my life.”

About Andy Mineo

For some time now, Andy Mineo has been blazing his own path, broadening his influence and walking unapologetically in his calling. Since releasing his debut mixtape under Reach Records—2011’s critically lauded Formerly Known—he’s proven to be both consistent and unpredictable in his approach.

This commitment to staying the course has earned him a slew of Billboard-charting records, high praise from his hip-hop counterparts, and sold out tours across the United States and Europe. His colossal hit “You Can’t Stop Me” not only won an ESPN Whammy Award for MLB’s Top Walk Up Song, but also went RIAA ® certified gold, selling over 500,000 copies worldwide. 2015’s Uncomfortable saw Mineo hit another stratosphere, artistically and in terms of commercial recognition.

In 2018, Mineo is set to make his greatest impact yet. His most recent project The Arrow is the first installment in a four-chapter EP that, taken together, will culminate into his third LP. Thematically, The Arrow is a refreshing take on a host of pressing topics that will resonate with new listeners and longtime fans alike; it candidly explores doubt, disillusionment, love, loss, and what it means to navigate an ever-changing world as a person of faith.
