Christian music powerhouse Natasha Owens is delivering holiday cheer this season with her upcoming album, Christmas Memories (Deluxe Version). Produced for Radiate Music by GRAMMY-nominated and multiple Dove Award winner Ian Eskelin, the new deluxe version featuring four additional songs will be available everywhere on November 12.
Last Christmas, Owens released her debut holiday album, Christmas Memories, featuring the new holiday classic, "Too Much Christmas." The all-new deluxe version includes the brand new songs, "That Spirit of Christmas," "Christmas Vacation," "The Twelve Days of Christmas (Owens Family Version)," and "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year." The first two and the title track "Christmas Memories" have been released as singles in advance of the album.
"When we started talking about doing a Christmas album, the number one topic that I wanted to write about was Christmas memories," says Owens. "I wanted to capture Christmas memories from my childhood and honor my Dad. He lived for Christmas, and he was all about making memories."
In addition to Owens, Christmas Memories includes an all-star list of writers, including Ian Eskelin, Tony Wood, and Francesca Battistelli. "Christmas projects are fun because there aren't any rules allowing me to bounce in and out of musical styles," Owens continues. "From the quirky, fun pop original 'Too Much Christmas' to the contemplative and emotive 'O Holy Night,' to the retro dance party vibes of Dancing Santa Claus,' I really got to explore some new territory for me as an artist."
Owens exploded onto the Christian music scene with her 2016 debut, No One But You. She suddenly found herself touring as the opening act for Christian music's most iconic artists, including Michael W. Smith and Jason Crabb. Her 2017 follow-up, We Will Rise, was named "Inspirational Album of the Year" at the 2018 We Love Christian Music Awards. And in 2019, Owens signed to Radiate Music and released her third album, Warrior, produced and co-written by award-winning producer Ian Eskelin.
