Americana Highways brings you this premiere of the album On This Christmas Day by Joe Newberry & April Verch, due to be available on December 3 via Slab Town Records. The album was produced by Joe Newberry & April Verch; recorded by April Verch; and mixed and mastered by Chris Rosser at Hollow Reed Studio in Asheville, N.C. It sports original artwork by Martha Kelly with project design by April Verch.
Musicians on the album are the duo: Joe Newberry on banjo, guitar, lead and harmony vocals; and April Verch on fiddle, lead and harmony vocals. This is a really thoughtful album, with songs that share relatable traditions with pretty vocals and hushed acoustic arrangements.
We began performing as “Newberry & Verch” in 2016 and started doing an annual “Holiday Cheer” tour that same year. From the beginning, it was a magical time for us, being able to share songs and stories that meant so much to us from our respective homes and traditions, with music fans and families around the USA and Canada. It remains one of the highlights of our year today, and we’re so excited to have an album that people can enjoy throughout the season with those they cherish. We hope it will bring lots of joy to those who listen and perhaps even create some new traditions for families and friends! — April Verch
