JODY MCBRAYER - Christmastime
One of the most recognizable voices in Christian music, Jody McBrayer is ready for the holidays
with "Christmastime," the album he says he has always wanted to record. As a jazz quartet

production is as inviting as an easy chair by the fireplace on a snowy December night. Produced
by StowTown Records, the album delivers a variety of eleven Christmas tunes that showcase
McBrayer's tenor vocals while delivering lyrics of hope.
"Christmastime" is an album that McBrayer wanted to record for a long time, and he wanted it to
have a timeless sound that could connect with a variety of people. That wish starts with the first

McBrayer and producer Wayne Haun also added traditional favorites, "What Child is This?,"
"Ave Maria/O Holy Night," and the 16th century French carol, "Bring A Torch, Jeanette,
