Fresh Carols from Josh Garrels

As the snow (or rain) begins to fall, the days get shorter, the lights get brighter and we are forced to acknowledge that it is “that time of the year” again.  The holidays are among us, and every year, along with the gift buying, turkey eating and tree cutting comes what might be the best part of it all -- new holiday music. One yuletide album we are especially charmed by is from our very own Josh Garrels.

The Light Came Down is a new kind of quintessential holiday album. The perfect break from the same old carols, Garrels’ voice gently croons tidings of comfort and joy. Soft acoustic guitar, distant synths and orchestral elements meld to craft a sound free of genre, perfect for playing in any company. With a harmonious blend of traditional carols and heartwarming originals, the record unravels like an afterthought of peace, joy and love. Whether you’re on a snowy car ride home or at a potluck with family and friends, these tracks are sure to spread some holiday cheer. Listen below and enjoy.
