South Carolina Christian rock group Emery is offering their Christmas EP We Wish You Emery Christmas on a free or pay what you want basis through their independent label, BadChristian Music. The EP features 8 newly recorded songs that includes Christmas hymns (such as "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and "O Come All Ye Faithful") and nand originals ("Jesus Gave Us Christmas").
What makes this EP unique is that some of the songs were recorded from their tour bus, from Toby Morrell's garage, and a couple live tracks featuring a jazz trio. You can download it here:http://badchristian.com/emerychristmas/.

Emery was founded in Rock Hill, South Carolina by Toby Morrell, Devin Shelton, Matt Carter, Josh Head, Joel Green and Seth Studley, and moved to Seattle in order to reach a more music centered scene.
Before signing with Tooth & Nail Records, Emery recorded two EPs, The Columbus EEP Thee and The Weak's End demo that they used to attract attention from labels. With Tooth & Nail, they have recorded five studio albums, and two EPs. The Weak's End, their debut album, was released in 2004, followed by The Question in 2005 and I'm Only A Man in 2007.
The latter fulfilled Emery's contract with Tooth & Nail. However, the band re-signed with the label and released ...In Shallow Seas We Sail on June 2, 2009. The album, We Do What We Want, was released on March 29, 2011, and the band's most recent album, You Were Never Alone, was released on May 19, 2015 via BadChristian Music.
