The Christmas EP  (Fervent Records/Word)
by Chris August

FOR FANS OF: Danny Gokey, Brandon Heath, MercyMe
Rating: 4 Stars

As is the case on his regular records, troubadour Chris August once again blends the best of soul and pop throughout this breezy, five-track assortment. “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” gallops with jazzy beats, “O Holy Night” showcases his smooth vocals over sparse piano accompaniment, while “Tell Me What You Want For Christmas” is among this year’s most catchy and upbeat new tunes that still promises plenty of hope amidst the playfulness.
