Josh Rouse released a new collection of holiday originals called The Holiday Sounds of Josh Rouse via Yep Roc Records. Offering a fresh approach to the season, Rouse’s first-ever holiday album showcases his effortless blend of folk, pop and rock, with beautiful harmonies, infectious melodies and transportive, emphatic storytelling.
Pick up the First Edition of The Holiday Sounds of Josh Rouse on CD/LP here. Included with the nine new songs are bonus three classic holiday songs & three demo versions of album tracks. The LP arrives on limited edition red vinyl and includes a bonus 12″ with the additional tracks.
Josh has become one of this generation’s most revered songwriters, delivering insightful lyrics with a warm, effortless style for more than two decades. The Holiday Sounds of Josh Rouse illustrates themes of childhood nostalgia and holidays spent away from home with the kind of lighthearted, upbeat instrumentation that can be enjoyed year-round, yet still fits comfortably alongside more traditional yuletide classics.
“I decided that if I was going to make a holiday record, I didn’t want to load it up with sleigh bells and choirs and sing the same old standards that everybody else has already sung. I wanted to write something that folks hadn’t heard before, something they could listen to year-round… I approached writing these songs like I was soundtracking a film. I was trying to bring all these little holiday scenes around the world to life with humor and heart.”Josh Rouse
