Centricity Music, the No. 1 Billboard Top Christian Albums Imprint for three consecutive years, has signed soul-inspired pop singer/songwriter, pianist and worship leader Natalie Layne to an exclusive, worldwide recording and publishing contract.

From Colorado Springs and currently residing in Nashville, Layne’s latest independent single, "Love Me Back to Life," has gained millions of views on Instagram Reels and on TikTok where she has over 197,000 followers and 2.8 million likes on her videos. The single follows her 2021 Castles EP and 2020 independent debut Be Human that have garnered attention worldwide. The music led to opening concerts for Jeremy Camp, Chris Tomlin and We the Kingdom, as well as sharing stages at festivals with Steven Curtis Chapman, Mandisa and Crowder.

"He's the God of dreams. Unbelievably excited to share that I've signed a record deal with Centricity Music after getting to know their team over the past three years," Layne shares on Instagram.

“I’ve been telling our team for a long time that Natalie was an absolute force of talent and one of the most gifted artists I’ve come across,” says John Mays, Centricity Music’s Senior Vice President, A&R. “At our recent indie artist retreat, we discovered that her level of talent is exceeded only by her heart for God and love for people. We’re fortunate to be able to partner with Natalie and are excited to play our role in getting her music to the world.”

"I'm so proud of Natalie to sign a record deal with Centricity!” exclaims Marcus Rixon, President, Rixon Entertainment Group. “It's been an incredible journey working with her for the past three years, and I'm confident that this partnership will be the perfect fit for her and her musical talents."
