A couple of weeks ago, as part of the propeller blogger program, I was able to download FFH's latest Album, One Silent Night, free of charge so that I could check it out and let you know my thoughts. Before we get to those, however, I'd like you to check out the press release.
Press Release for FFH:
(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Sept. 30, 2011– Best-selling pop group FFH will usher in the holiday season with its first Christmas album. One Silent Night, available Oct. 18, is a mix of original songs and Christmas classics.
Produced by FFH founding member Jeromy Deibler, One Silent Night has been four years in the making. Giving in to the persistent appeals of loyal fans, FFH has crafted a project worthy of your holiday music collection.
Listeners will recognize favorites like “Winter Wonderland,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” and “Jingle Bell Rock,” among others, while being introduced to new tracks including “The Birthday of a King,” “Glorious Impossible,” and “One Silent Night.”
Deibler comments, “We just feel blessed to be able to make this record and wanted to do the kind of Christmas music we like to listen to, something that’s not trendy but more of a classic style. For us Christmas is about remembering… slowing down to see what is important. And being reminded of the glorious impossible that was the birth of Christ. We hope this album reflects that desire and inspires others to do the same.”
FFH plans to support the album with singles “One Silent Night” and “Baby It’s Cold Outside” to radio Oct. 1 as well as select tour dates in November and December.
Pop vocal group FFH has released thirteen projects, sold more than two million albums, and garnered 24 radio hits, including seven No. 1 singles and ten Top 5 radio singles. In addition to multiple Dove Award nominations, FFH has been recognized at the Inspirational Life Awards as well as the Billboard Music Video Awards. The group has performed more than 1000 dates since 2000 and continues to be a favorite on the tour circuit. FFH is also known for its work with the “Make-A-Wish Foundation,” Kurt Warner’s “First Things First Foundation,” and for its contributions to national ad campaigns for Coca Cola and IBM.
You know, I'm sure that since FFH has had so much success I've heard some of their music, but to be honest, I am not familiar with their work. I really had no idea what to expect from this album. However, it's Christmas music! How can it not be good! LOL I don't know why, but even though I have some very specific ideas as to what kinds of music I like, I am simply just not all that picky when it comes to Christmas music. Perhaps the holidays make me more open-minded, perhaps it's just the spirit of the season, but I pretty much like any style of Christmas music. Period. As the years go by, I find myself beginning to dread the hectic, materialistic side of Christmas, so I have to crank up the music to get in the mood. Somehow it works!
So I checked out the album, and sure enough, I started to feel "Christmasy!" Would I like FFH's other albums? I'm not sure. However, I do feel that I can recommend this album for anyone who likes Christmas music. I mean, it's Christmas music, how can it not be good! LOL
