Internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter/recording artist Jean Watson releases her highly anticipated new Christmas album, For Unto Us, today, November 1, 2019, from Shadowlands Records.
For Unto Us was an unexpected gift to me," says Watson. "I got to sing some of my favorite Christmas songs with some incredible musicians and guest artists! What a thrill to work with Phil Keaggy and Matt Slocum again, and to meet and work with Russ Taff and David Meece for the first time. I always say each new CD is my favorite, but I am over-the-top ecstatic about this one! Some tracks are mystical and pensive, others are joyful and exuberant, and a few are fun and folksy."
"Some of this music was recorded at the iconic Sound Kitchen in the Nashville area, while we recorded other songs as an ensemble at The Castle in Franklin, Tennessee. We created the music together as a group, which was a brand new, exciting experience for me. I believe the result is a vibrant, creative Christmas experience that does not sound artificial or contrived."
