NASHVILLE, Tenn. ----- Lucid Artist, a renowned artist management company, content creator and distributor based in Nashville, TN, readies the release of All is Calm, All is Bright: Songs of Christmas, a thirteen song multi-artist holiday recording bowing October 21.

Produced by Dove-nominated singer-songwriter Andrew Greer, All is Calm, All is Bright features some of the most enduring names in Christian music, including GRAMMY® Award-winning icon Sandi Patty, multi-platinum mainstay Jaci Velasquez, Dove Award-winning singer-songwriters Cindy Morgan, Ginny Owens and Nic Gonzales (of Salvador), acclaimed duo Seth & Nirva, Greer, plus American Idol’s Melinda Doolittle and R&B veteran-turned-worship leader Montell Jordan.

“The lights, the trees, the gifts, these beautiful aspects of Christmas are meaningful because of God’s love,” Greer shares. “So it was an honor to work with artists whose core desire through music is to share that love. This record is more than a collection of holiday songs, it is the story of God with us.”

Distributed nationwide through an exclusive partnership with Parable Christian Stores, the all-new studio recording offers pristine arrangements of eleven time-honored seasonal songs, along with two originals, including “Heartbeat of a Baby,” a stirring advent anthem recorded by Velasquez and co-penned by Greer.

“In bringing together some of the most celebrated artists in our industry, who are also my friends, I wanted to gift retailers with a Christmas offering that is personal, yet timeless,” Greg Lucid, President, Lucid Artist, explains. “All is Calm, All is Bright seams together the classic sounds listeners expect from a Christmas record with each artist’s unique giftings to create a record fit to backdrop every scene of the season. I hope buyers enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed creating it.”

All is Calm, All is Bright follows Lucid Artist’s #1 record streak, including this year’s piano hymns recording, All Creatures of Our God and King, 2013’s big band holiday set, Let Heaven & Nature Swing and All Things Bright & Beautiful: Hymns for the Seasons, also produced by Greer. The latter topped Nielsen Christian SoundScan’s Instrumental chart for 25 weeks while earning a 2013 GMA Dove Award nomination for Instrumental Album of the Year.
