“With all the perils in this world we believe that God’s Love is not only eternal but can change lives. We wanted to do this contest because with all the news that’s out there rarely are there a lot of positive messages of people doing random acts of kindness, love and encouragement out there so we’d like to do our part to change that through this contest.” Dave Hanley, PRESS PLAY
“My favorite part of what we do, is building relationships with fans after the shows. Hearing stories, and getting to know them personally. Seeing how God has impacted there life. Whether it’s for the first time that night or there journey has been ongoing. Loving on people is our goal.. If we can spark love, we will change lives.” – Nicole Croteau, PRESS PLAY
“Being a Christian is not just about knowing love but about being love. Love himself has led by example and all I prayis that this music can reach beyond just good music and become love in the open.” – Jonathan Thulin, PRESS PLAY
With the concept of the album along with the contest , #LITO is a hopeful project full of songs ranging from the up tempo self-titled cut, “#LITO” to the slower yet hugely emotional, “Songs For The Broken”. PRESS PLAY recorded the album in Minneapolis, MN, where the group teamed up with producer, David Thulin, who also worked on World Anthem.
The band plans to announce a new tour in connection with the album’s release soon. For more information about the group go to www.DreamRecords.org and to enter the contest today go to www.ThisIsPressPlay.com
