“Over the past couple of years, I have been modernizing Christmas carols, almost like remixing them with modern day production,” says Joth Hunt. “As I was thinking about what I could do next, I thought it would be cool to have a modern take on ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas,’ so I wrote this original track. While producing ‘A Very Merry Christmas,’ I invited two of the greats in the industry, Mateus Asato and Jesus Molina, to lend their talents on guitar and keyboard respectively. The culmination of all this has become one very fun track to listen to and sing along with!”
“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."
“My prayer is that as you listen, your heart will feel the surrounding warmth of the presence of God,” shares Kim Walker-Smith about this live recording. “I pray that your ears would be open to hearing that still small voice speaking love and hope to you. I pray that every burden you’ve been lugging around would be gently lifted off with the very first notes you hear. And most of all, I pray that you encounter Jesus and you are radically and forever changed by it."
