Garrels has just released a Christmas album. For many artists, releasing a Christmas album means they’re out of ideas and yet still have contractual obligations to meet — so they pull out the Christmas songbook and throw together yet another version of Frosty the Snowman.
But Garrels has put out a mix of old and new, presenting the story of Jesus through refreshingly unconventional arrangements. Christmas music is quickly becoming as secular as the holiday, but Garrels keeps the focus on Jesus.
His entire album is available on YouTube. This is but a sampling.
You can buy the album at all the usual places, but I’d suggest you buy directly from the artist: Josh Garrels.
PS — Garrels has released free selections from earlier albums on NoiseTrade. You can download some of his best songs for free — with the artist’s blessing.
