Christmas: God With Us (Jeremy Camp) and GIVEAWAY (ends November 1st)
Christmas: God With Us
GRAMMY-nominated and BEC Recordings’ artist Jeremy Camp will be releasing a Christmas project this holiday season titled Christmas: God With Us. This is Camp’s first full-length Christmas project in his 10-year career, and it will be available on September 25. The album is produced by Brown Bannister and Ben Shive along with Camp. Camp’s Christmas album is filled with holiday classics as well as the original title track “God With Us.” Fans will hear favorites such as “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Joy To The World,” and “Mary Did You Know.” Although these are traditional songs, Jeremy takes a fresh approach to the arrangements on his album.
It was quite the contrast driving down the road with Jeremy Camp's Christmas music playing inside the car while pumpkins and scarecrows lined my neighborhood, but I can assure you that none of us minded. As a tradition, our family buys a new Christmas CD each year so we are quite picky in our choices. Whatever we choose is what we will likely listen to a lot over the season which means we must all agree and we must all like it. I knew they would be the perfect audience for reviewing Jeremy's new album. From the first notes of "Jingle Bell Rock" we were all hooked.
Ten years was definitely worth the wait for Jeremy's Christmas project. He took his time and made each song his own without taking away its own original virtue. I love that.
This is as close as you can get to sitting around a fire while Jeremy plays his guitar singing all of these songs. As a matter of fact, I can't wait for it to be cold enough to build a fire, make some hot chocolate and turn up Jeremy's Christmas CD to enjoy every last note!
