MORE ABOUT DAN BREMNES: When this singer and songwriter from Salmon Arm, British Columbia was just ten years old, he played drums at his local church while also learning guitar and discovering a passion for songwriting. As years passed it was a six-month missions trip in Australia with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) that re-shaped his perspective: "While I was there, something happened in my life, and God started working on my heart," Bremnes shares. "I started thinking about making music that was really intentional about reaching people on a spiritual level. I wanted to come right out and speak about God and my relationship with Him."
As he was pursuing his professional dreams, Bremnes' faced the tragic news that his mother was
killed in a car accident. An event that truly turned his life upside down, there was no better way to honor his mother's memory than by throwing himself wholeheartedly into music. He began to share his songs with anyone who'd listen and continued to hone his songwriting craft. It wasn't long before people took notice. In his career to date, Bremnes has collected a host of awards and accolades as well as No. 1's in Canada, eventually attracting the attention of Nashville's Capitol Christian label.
