About the Artist
Continuing with their tradition of creating modern interpretations of timeless Christmas carols and hymns, Future of Forestry has released Advent Christmas EP Volume 3, which successfully blends old with new in a truly unique setting.
The EP features alternative renditions of some of the most classic and revered Christmas songs, including: Silent Night, Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring, Carol of the Bells, O Come All Ye Faithful and Still Still Still.
Vol. 3 is designed to be a cohesive piece that merges seamlessly with the EPs that were released in years past. With epic sound, creative interpretation, unique instrumentation and traditional values, this Advent EP, like the ones before it, hope to honor and enhance this most holy of seasons.
Eric Owyoung, the creative mind behind Future of Forestry, explains, “In all reality, the inspiration for this album came from each of the individual songs; each one evokes a different aspect of the Christmas experience to me. There are some key moments throughout the album where I had to interpret these songs so that they could exist in the dynamic and emotional ways I've always wanted them to. A characteristic of Future of Forestry is the band's desire to transcend beyond the limitations of a standard rock band, and this album really explores a space between post-rock, electronic music, and a rich orchestral setting. Since my musical background was birthed out of a classical training, it was so creatively fulfilling to be writing, arranging, and composing with the timbres of an orchestra in mind."
