In addition to the all-new seasonal set, an original holiday special also premieres exclusively on Facebook Live tonight, Nov. 12, at 6 p.m. CST. More The Merrier: A Sarah Reeves Christmas Special serves up a 15-minute visual companion for the record as Reeves, clad in festive attire, performs in a series of classic holiday vignettes. Backed by rich brass and string sections, she brings selections from her latest holiday album to life with a hint of sparkle and a dash of old-world glamour. Watch the Facebook Live premiere HERE.
From the timeless elegance of traditional favorites like “Winter Wonderland” and “My Favorite Things” to the nostalgic spark of originals like “Sentimental” and “Snow Globe,” Reeves’ holiday offering is sure to be the soundtrack for many Christmas parties this year and in years to come. “More The Merrier is quite possibly my favorite project of my career thus far. It is a timeless collection of Christmas songs, both old and new, that I hope you enjoy listening to as much as we enjoyed making it. I tapped into a side of my artistry that I’ve never known before, yet it felt natural and effortless,” Reeves shares of the album produced and arranged by Ben Schofield and Mark Campbell. “The energy in the studio was electric as we brought jazz musicians in to bring these songs to life. I hope you feel the magic, the joy, and a touch of nostalgia and warmth this holiday season as you fill your home with these Christmas carols.”
Reeves previously teased More The Merrier, dropping two songs in advance of today’s release: a Big Band rendition of “Go Tell It On The Mountain,” followed by a duet-style version of “Winter Wonderland” with soulful singer and “American Idol” finalist Clark Beckham.
Reeves’ fresh holiday collection combines the unmistakable vintage charm of Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole with the warmth and nostalgia of the Vince Guaraldi Trio, allowing the revered songstress to experiment in the studio where she tracked her vocals alongside live horns and lush strings on four originals and four holiday favorites.
