2016 JUNO Award winner Dan Bremnes will perform in Williams Lake next week.

Bremnes is touring with his album Where the Light Is that just won the 2016 JUNO for Best Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album.

Bremnes, together with another talented young band, The Color will give a concert at Cariboo Bethel Church on April 13.

“I love music,” Bremnes says. “I love hearing it, writing it, performing it, arranging it, and recording it.”

A singer/songwriter from Salmon Arm, Bremnes was just 10 years old when 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 mission trip in Australia with Youth With a Mission 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 honour his mother’s memory than by throwing himself wholeheartedly into music.

He began to share his songs with anyone who would 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 #1s in Canada, eventually attracting the attention of Nashville’s Capitol Christian label.

Tickets for the concert are $15 and available at the Cariboo Bethel Church office (250-398-6731) YFC, online @ danbremnes.com or at the door.
