Dream Records brings with it a distinguished roster of talent, such as Press Play, Darrell Evans, Cindy Cruse Ratcliff, Shake The Nation and Warr Acres.

Founder and President of Dream Records, David Hanley, shares, “Dream Records’ goal is not only to develop and release remarkable artists and songs but more importantly to mentor, train and release ‘music missionaries.’ Dream’s mission is to release the heart of an artist who is passionately and sincerely in tune with their Creator and recognizes that it’s Christ who is on stage.”

“We believe in the vision of Dream Records,” says Greg Bays, EMI CMG Distribution’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “EMI CMG Distribution is excited to partner with Dream and to help share their passion in supporting the ministry of their artists.”

Dream Records is anticipating a strong release schedule this Fall, such as sophomore projects from rock group Submission Red coming in October, and a Spanish language worship album from Evan Craft in September. More information about these new releases may be found at emicmgdistribution.com.

“We are very excited about our new relationship with EMI CMG,” adds Lance Brown, General Manager of Dream Records. “As we move forward together, Dream Records will continue to bring great music with the sheer focus of delivering the Gospel to encourage other Christians, as well as help others, discover the power of Jesus Christ for the first time in their lives. We are hopeful for the future.”
