Independent pop/worship singer/songwriter Joshua Mills released his Christmas album Christmas Miracle a few weeks ago! Full of heartfelt, poignant and traditional Christmas carols, and a few original melodies, this album is one of our favourite Christmas albums of 2014! I had the privilege of interviewing Joshua via email recently, about the new album. We discussed the album, what he hopes listeners will experience when hearing the well known and not so well known Christmas songs, as well as his goals and dreams for the year ahead. Check out the interview below.
As I mentioned earlier in an analysis post about the nominations, the GMA Dove Awards is one of my most favourite time of the year in terms of Christian music, along with the announcing of the WOW Hits list, and the K-Love Fan Awards nominations. For those of who are not sure as to what the Dove Awards are, let me give you a quick run-down.
Release Date: October 7th 2014

1 Girl Nation, a Christian CCM/pop quartet signed to Reunion Records, released their debut self-titled album last year to rave reviews and positive feedback. Releasing their Christmas EP A Very 1 Girl Nation Christmas tomorrow, the collection of holiday songs features original Christmas songs, traditional carols, and a cover of the popular Frozen song “Let It Go”! I recently had the privilege of interviewing all four vocalists (Carmen, Kayli, Lindsey and Lauryn Taylor) via email, as we discussed the upcoming EP, what they hope listeners will experience when hearing these 5 Christmas and holiday themed songs, and their goals and plans for the rest of 2014 and 2015, inclusive of a brand new studio album of all original songs! Check out the interview below.
It’s time for another Worship Wednesday’s post, where we delve into a popular worship song, speaking about what it means to us.
Seeing that Michael W Smith’s The Spirit Of Christmas released this week (which is one of my favourite Christmas albums ever, by the way), and that there are a few high profile Christmas albums releasing in the near future, inclusive of 1 Girl Nation, Chris August, Everfound and Peter Furler, I thought that it would be appropriate and fitting if we talk about a worshipful Christmas song.
Release Date: September 30th 2014
