Power pop vocal group 1GN is back with an energetic, fun and more mature sophomore album Unite. With a musical style reminiscent of many top mainstream
superstar acts - but without the negative messages. 1GN showcases an upbeat blend of confident, catchy Christian pop music with lyrics intently focused on
overcoming hate with love and having fun, while living a life of authentic faith. After causing a stir with its 2013 self-title debut album 1 Girl Nation,
which produced such catchy pop hits as "While We're Young," the dance-infused "Vertical," and the heart-filled "Count Your Rainbows," the girls became an
instant sensation with teens and tweens. The debut album reached No. 2 on Billboard's "Heatseeker Albums" chart, and No. 9 on its "Top Christian Albums"
list, causing a response so dramatic that the group earned a "New Artist of the Year" nomination in the 45th Annual Dove Awards.
This time around, after losing two members and enduring many challenges, the girls have reemerged with a powerful and more focused message. Now a trio,
comprised of Carmen Hadley, Kayli Robinson, and Lauryn Taylor Bach, the group changed its official name from "1 Girl Nation" to "1GN," reflecting the act's
maturing sound and appeal to ever-widening audiences. As the girls gear up for the release of their second full-length album, 1GN is more unified than
ever. "We have been through so much together," notes Lauryn Taylor. "We have shared great times and really dark times. But through it all we've come out
stronger." The album's first radio single "Get Hype," is an undeniably hooky pop track that gets into your soul and makes you want to dance. "As
Christians, we have more to hope for and more to celebrate than anyone can imagine," explains Kayli. "A song like 'Get Hype' is just a modern expression of
the joy and excitement we should feel as members of the body of Christ." Also included is the artful and hooky "Cinema," in which the girls consider the
thought-provoking contemplation, "What if my life was a cinema, what would the story tell?" as well as the anthemic "Guard Your Heart," a kind of slogan
for the girls to their fans. "This world is throwing so much at each of us, and it's very easy to get drawn in and deceived by the messages and values we
are hit with," explains Lauren Taylor. "'Guard Your Heart' is an encouragement for everyone to protect who God made you to be, to be strong in who you are,
and to keep your spirit from being corrupted by the world."
