Without Jesus Christ there would be no Christmas. How dark the winter would be without anything to celebrate. And how dark the world would be without the knowledge of God’s love and the example of how to love each other.

Singer/songwriter, GARETH DAVIES-JONES writes; So officially from Saturday 1st December Nine Lessons is here. Pretty much the start of Advent is a fine time to launch a Christmas album. Many of you will know that for the last few years I’ve been touring in late November and most of December delivering my interpretation of some of our best known and best loved Christmas songs. Mostly in small and cosy venues, the music, the ambience, sharing the context in which the songs were written and often the space to consider the lyrics and melodies afresh has been a treat for artist and audience alike. Recorded at The Foundry Music Lab in Motherwell the album is a fair representation of the intimacy of these gigs, and I hope will bring something of the atmosphere right to you as you listen. As it will be a download only product you can hear samples from all the tracks on the album at http://www.garethdavies-jones.com/shop/nine-lessons/ Webshop site. You can go straight from there to download the full album from our distributor CD Baby. The album is also available from i-Tunes and other reputable online retailers.
