Nashville, TN (July 10, 2019)
It was announced last week that BEC Recordings‘ Christian music artist Tasha Layton has released her new EP, Love Running Wild. The music video for the EP’s current single, “Safe Here,” also recently debuted exclusively with CCM Magazine.

“I wrote this song in a very unsafe season in my life,” Layton explains. “I felt a lot of anxiety and the weight of the circumstances around me really weighing on my chest in a way that I felt like I couldn’t get a deep breath. I needed to be reminded that God is the lifter of my head as David states in Psalm 3…it wasn’t all up to me. It is in His strength that lifting my head would change my perspective.”
It was last fall when BEC Recordings announced their signing of the singer, songwriter, worship leader, speaker, and author. Her previous radio single, “Love Lifting Me” reached Top 25 on both the Billboard Christian Airplay and AC Monitored charts, and Top 20 on the AC Indicator chart. Her debut “I Belong To You,” which was touted by listeners as “beautiful with an amazing message,” and “excellent lyrically and musically,” is also featured on the brand-new EP.
“In Matthew 13, the Kingdom of God is likened to a mustard seed… it’s small in seed form but grows wildly,” shares Tasha about the title of the EP. “I wanted to reference the uncontainable, unexplainable, contagious love of God that flows into our lives and ends up affecting everything we do. We carry His fire and love within us wherever we go and it spreads fast and wild like the mustard seed!”
Singing since she was a young teen, Tasha’s voice has taken her all around the world. From appearing on American Idol to singing backup on tour with Katy Perry for four years, Tasha is more than ready to be on her own sharing her solo music. She already has fans in artists such as Jesus Culture‘s Chris McClarney, Colton Dixon and Rend Collective, to name just a few.
