About the Artist

"The Holly & The Ivy" is a new Christmas album from singer-songwriter Josh Bales. "I wanted to make a Christmas album that captured the longing of Advent and the hope of Christmastide," Josh said. "I recorded most of the album in my home, and in my counseling office. As a part time mental health therapist, it was very meaningful to sing the lyrics "He comes to make his blessings flow far as the curse is found..." in a place where the waiting of Advent is often felt more than the joy of Christmas. So these songs reflect that mixed spirit of longing and hope. I think that's what Christmas probably SHOULD feel like in a broken world."

This is Josh's first Christmas project, and it comes on the heels of "Count The Stars," a collection of songs he released in 2013 with multi-award winning producers Ed and Scott Cash.
