NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Husband and wife folk-pop duo, Jenny & Tyler, will release a new holiday album, Christmas Stories (buy), Nov. 4, 2016. Produced by Ben Shive (Rend Collective, Brandon Heath, Andrew Peterson), the project features eight Christmas classics and one original song written by Jenny, Tyler, and Trent Monk, “Christmastime,” which is the single going for adds at Christian radio on Nov. 24, 2016. Christmas Stories marks the first time the duo worked with Shive, and the end result is a jazz sound with a nostalgic feel that is reminiscent of Bing Crosby, Simon and Garfunkel, and The Swell Season. The record is being released by Centricity Music’s new independent label, Residence Music, and will be distributed by Caroline/Capitol Music Group.
“Christmas Stories is our attempt to rekindle the wonder of Christmas,” explains Jenny. “It’s how we felt when we were kids waiting impatiently for Santa, reliving the Christmas story, and listening to our parents’ holiday albums.”
Adds Tyler, ‘The older you get, the more difficult it seems to be truly amazed by something. We recorded this album to give ourselves a reason to pause and reflect, to get back to that childlike wonder.”
“On Christmas Stories, I think Jenny & Tyler really capture the nostalgia and memory that we all have of the holiday season,” continues Andrew Lambeth, Director Artist Development, Residence Music. “Whether it’s the classic Bing Crosby holiday feel of ‘Christmastime’ or the old British hymn ‘Maker of the Sun and Moon,’ Jenny & Tyler have made an album that will be great for the family, young and old.”
