Singer/songwriter Matt Wertz offers the perfect holiday soundtrack for tree-trimming, treat-baking and gift-wrapping with Snow Globe, his first Christmas album, available on Handwritten/Essential Records October 25.
Blending Wertz’s signature acoustic style with strings and horns while adding a little holiday flare, Snow Globe features timeless Christmas classics including, “Walking In A Winter Wonderland,” “White Christmas,” “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” and “O Holy Night” made angelic by the lilting voices of The Nashville Children’s Choir. The 12-track album, produced by Ben Shive, features guest vocals by Amy Grant, Brandon Heath and Dave Barnes.
“There is a reverence to making Christmas music,” says Wertz. “Instead of making the song serve me, I tried to serve the song. I wanted to make a Christmas record my grandkids would listen to someday.”
The project will be supported with a radio single and a 10-city Christmas tour throughout the Midwest and Southwest this December. Visit www.mattwertz.com for a list of tour dates.
