Josh Wilson Embraces the True Spirit of the Holidays with Christmas Single “Jesus Is Alive”

Sparrow Records’ Artist Creates a
“Unique Christmas Experience” on Christmas Tour
Set to Launch November 27

On November 18, Sparrow Records’ artist Josh Wilson will embrace the true spirit of Christmas as he releases “Jesus Is Alive,” available on iTunes ®.
Wilson will be performing  “Jesus Is Alive” on his Christmas tour this winter titled “Josh Wilson Presents Noel: A Unique Christmas Experience.” This 18-city tour will be unlike any he has done before, as he will showcase his diverse musical talents by operating over 20 different instruments throughout the evening. Inspired by the recording process of See You, where Wilson played over 15 various instruments one at a time, he will use computers and pedals to record all of the sounds from each tool in front of the audience. This allows every sound to be recorded as the night goes on. The end result is an extraordinary and magical holiday experience for the whole family.  Watch and listen to Wilson as he demonstrates what fans can witness live this Christmas here. For a full list of tour dates, see below.
“This is one of my favorite tours I’ve ever been on,” explains Wilson. “It’s fun and unique because we’re essentially bringing a recording studio to the stage.
Throughout the night, we’ll use over 20 instruments to record Christmas carols in front of the audience.  I’m so excited to share these songs that remind us, as C.S. Lewis said, ‘The Son of God became a man to enable men to become sons of God.’”
While “Jesus Is Alive” will impact radio this holiday season, Wilson’s current single “Fall Apart” is continuing to climb the radio charts, presently at No. 12 at AC Indicator, No. 16 on the National Audience Chart and No. 18 on AC monitored.

HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
