ATHENS, Tenn. - July 28, 2014 - PRLog -- Verb Records is happy to officially announce the addition of Alterative Christian artist, SafeHaven.

SafeHaven is comprised of Kayla Saunders, Caleb Bolen, and Brian Sexton.  The three have been leading worship together at a large youth group near their hometown in Beckley, WV.  SafeHaven is now the fourth artist signed to the Verb Records label imprint of Merit Music Group, LLC and is the label’s first female-fronted band.

Kayla Saunders is the band’s front-woman and has had a passion for music since she was a teenager.  However, her main focus during her high school career was athletics.  In fact, all of the band members were heavily involved in athletics and were even offered scholarship’s to play their respective sports at the college level.  While they are all still attending college, they decided not to accept the athletic scholarships, thus allowing them to have more time to focus on their other ventures.  Without a strict extracurricular schedule, they began writing and rehearsing for their new album.

Since 2011, when her friend secretly created a YouTube account to post videos of her singing, Kayla has been gaining notoriety on her social media outlets.  In fact, social media is partially responsible for their addition to the label. Verb Records co-owner Corey Brooks saw multiple clips of Kayla singing on Instagram, and the 15-second video clips caught his attention.  He commented on one of them and they scheduled a meeting that very day.

“I was very impressed by Kayla’s powerful vocal ability and control.  I didn’t know at the time that she would be working with a band and that Caleb Bolen would be part of the band.  Years ago, he was my guitar player in the Corey Brooks Band.  It is nice to be able to work with him again.” – Corey Brooks

“I feel extremely blessed to have been given this opportunity to glorify God within the realm of music, and I desire to use music as a channel to spread His Word to as many places as He would allow me to.” – Kayla Saunders

SafeHaven is currently recording their debut EP at Tornado House Studios in Athens, TN. Austin Huelsbeck is producing this album, with T.K. King and Corey Brooks as co-producers; T.K. is also engineering, and Corey is serving as the studio manager for this project.

“I am extremely excited to help produce the first EP for SafeHaven, a recent addition to Verb Records. Being somewhat familiar with pop punk, this is the first EP of that genre I have been able to work on, and I am absolutely loving it!” – T.K. King
