The Down East Boys will be releasing their brand new Christmas album on October 11. They are sharing the nativity story on Comfort And Joy, their Christmas EP featuring classic songs, smooth harmonies and a high-energy medley. The voices of lead Ricky Carden, baritone Daryl Paschal, bass Zac Barham and tenor Doug Pittman set the tone for a season of rejoicing in Christ's birth.
Beginning with the title track, this collection reminds that Christmas is about celebrating Christ's birth and the joy and salvation it brought - and still brings us. The lyrics of "Comfort And Joy" say each year, Jesus makes the weary world rejoice, and we should praise Him.
"Glorious Impossible" follows, recounting the miraculous nativity story, telling us to open our hearts and souls to receive His love. The Down East Boys' rendition of the classic "Little Drummer Boy" is joyful in its message. With happy hearts, we can serve Jesus with whatever gifts we have, no matter how small they seem. The collection also features an upbeat, quartet version of "Children Go Where I Send Thee" and a Celtic feel to the old world tune "Wexford Carol."
Comfort And Joy closes with "Carol Of The Bells Medley," a festive, high-energy song that shows the Down East Boys' vocal talent. The voices come together to create a moving medley, that ends on the note, "Christmas is here!"
