CANVAS and “My Light” follow the biggest song of Dixon’s career to-date “Build A Boat,” which, at 10 weeks became the longest running No. 1 Mediabase Christian AC song of 2022, also spawning “Build A Boat (feat. Gabby Barrett),” with MULTI-PLATINUM and award-winning Country star Gabby Barrett. Both tracks follow his Atlantic Record’s debut and No.1 song, “Miracles,” which also boasts over 94 million global streams.
Speaking of the CANVAS EP, Dixon notes how “Life is all about perspective – how we view the various seasons that life has to offer. The twins are such a blessing, and when they came, we realized how precious life is. One thing I’ve noticed is that life is better lived with others. Finding someone who brings out the best in you. Someone who will turn your mess into something beautiful. For me, God has been that constant reminder for our family that we don’t have to walk through this life alone. Every day is a blank canvas to live life to the fullest, and to view the world and the people around us in a new light.”
In addition to “My Light” and both versions of “Build A Boat,” CANVAS features four other songs, including the anthemic “Giants,” written and produced by Grammy-nominee Joe London (Jason Derulo, Lizzo, Thomas Rhett), the piano-driven “Hold Onto Hope,” a fire-filled vocal performance on “Unbreakable,” and the delicate title-track, “Canvas.”
