Merry Christmas from the Downtown Revival Band
We would like to share our latest music for the season with you. We’ve spent several months in the studio after hours and on the weekends to bring life to our new versions of these classic Christmas carols and a few new originals. We are calling it, Our Savior Has Come and the cover looks like this:
A Time to Celebrate
Do you get burned out with pop holiday music starting before even Thanksgiving these days? We do. The band wanted to put together an album that redirects the focus back to the true “reason for the season.” That, to us, means classic carols and some new originals declaring arrival of our Savior and celebrating His reason for being born as a baby- to grow into the man that would die on the cross for our sins. We are saved by His grace. His birth signifies the beginning of the path to His death and resurrection. To God be the glory for His goodness, grace, and love as He sent his only Son to earth to save us all. Amen.
Christmas Carols, Just the essentials, please…
We decided to also include five Christmas carols that were stripped down to the primary essentials- voice and acoustic guitar. It’s our belief that many folks will really enjoy these simple variations of Adam’s arrangements. The title for it is, simply, Acoustic Carols EP.
Official Album Blurb
Above all, to God be the glory for His goodness, grace, and love as He sent his only Son to earth to save us all.
Get ready to journey through a Christmas rock experience with the Downtown Revival Band. Adam and the DRB really find their sweet spot with their melodic rock anthems and modernized versions of classic hymns. Take a little punk, pop, rock and mix it all with some Christmas magic and this might be your favorite alternative to today’s oversaturated pop Christmas market.
