Olivia Lane Inks With BEC Recordings
Olivia Lane has signed with BEC Recordings.
Having been added to the SiriusXM The Message team of hosts, alongside industry vet Al Skop earlier this year, Lane is prepping for the release of new music in 2024.
“Back in 2020 the Lord whispered to my heart to ‘make the music’ and that He would handle the rest,” says Lane. “Today I stand amazed at the team the Lord has placed in my path. I’m thrilled to be joining the BEC family as I truly feel they honor where I’ve come from as an independent artist and see the vision for where I need to grow. I can’t wait to see what else the Lord has in store!”
Lane, who documented her transformation from a non-believer to a faithful follower — or, as she calls it, “from atheist to amen” — in viral TikTok videos, joined SiriusXM’s Contemporary Christian channel, The Message as host of a new morning show in July. The Olivia Lane Show airs every weekday from 5 a.m.–11 p.m. CT, with Lane sharing faith, hope and music, along with stories of encouragement.
