Thank you Josh

I already know what I am going to be listening to this winter season -- The Holiday Sounds of Josh Rouse! His opener "Mediterranean X-Mas" is more autobiographical than early work, and this is Rouse inviting us to spend time around his Christmas tree and enjoy a sip of champagne. Soon you will find yourself present in the company of Rouse's great storytelIing skills, like "Red Suit" or "Sleigh Brother Bill", or his ability to cut a great groove, like "New York Holiday". This effort all comes together in this album's best single "Hearbreak Holiday"! Beautiful artwork, too, like a present under the tree. Rouse has also invited his friends: Producer Brad Jones is on hand! The musicians are some of the best from Nashville and Spain! And Daniel Tashian co-writes some cuts. As usual, Rouse delivers great songwriting and arrangements, and every track is of high quality! And that's what Rouse is known for -- high quality. This album warms me up, like listening to Rouse's "Christmas Songs" and instantly being close to loved ones by a crackling fire on a cold, clear, starry night. I will not only add this to my collection of Rouse's other great works and my go-to favorites of the season but to my steady stable of great listens. Playable the whole year round.
