NASHVILLE, TN. (August 19, 2021) - Award-winning pop singer/songwriter and Broadway actress Carla Bianco is set to release her first contemporary Christian EP, You Love Me As I Am, Fall 2021 through Ivory Note Records/BFD/Sony Orchard. The title cut and debut single is slated to impact radio and streaming services everywhere on September 10, 2021. To pre-save Carla Bianco's new single, "You Love Me A I Am," click here.
Best known for her starring turns as Maureen in the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, Rent, on Broadway and the West Coast, Bianco was discovered by legendary producer and manager Jellybean Benitez (Madonna, Barbra Streisand, Paul McCartney, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, and Sting), who signed her to a management and publishing deal while she was still in college. The powerhouse pop vocalist soon inked a distribution deal with Sony/RED and released two albums as a recording artist on Ivory Note Records. She went on to become an ASCAP Award-winning, No. 1 Billboard chart-topping songwriter.
Bianco's crystal-clear vocal is set to a backdrop of shimmering pop instrumentation on her upcoming CCM single, "You Love Me As I Am." Penned by Bianco and produced by Sam Hart (Aaron Shust) with an infectious groove that will hook listeners from the first note, the song is a nuanced anthem of revelation, humility, and devotion to Jesus.
The song was inspired by Bianco’s own spiritual reawakening following the death of her parents, when life-long feelings of self-doubt and insecurity threatened to take over her mind and heart.
While still wrestling with her recent losses, Bianco participated in a spiritual retreat, where she says she was overwhelmed by the grace of the Savior she has called her "Best Friend" from childhood. She began to experience the unequivocal, unconditional love of God in a brand-new way.
"Something just broke loose," she explains. "During that retreat, I was immersed in scripture and felt His love and reassurance comfort me and distill a new sense of identity and purpose unlike any I've ever felt before."
A lifelong Christian, Bianco’s spiritual re-awakening stirred new creative passions within her. She felt God calling her in a new direction artistically, leading her to pen songs of worship, praise, and self-reflection.
This new direction marks a stylistic shift for the acclaimed singer/songwriter/performer.
The result is her stunning new EP, You Love Me As I Am. The title cut from that project is slated to impact radio and streaming services on September 10, 2021, with the full EP following in the Fall.
"We are thrilled to continue working with Carla on her new album!" says Bob Frank, CEO of BFD/Sony Orchard. "Her songwriting is inspiring, and we are proud to be involved with her and this project."
"I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share this wonderful assurance I have discovered as if for the first time," says Bianco. "I can't think of anything I'd rather sing about than God's unconditional, unshakable love for me."
"From the moment Carla sat down at the piano to sing me one of her songs, I knew she was a gifted and talented artist," says hit music producer, John "Jellybean" Benitez.
