Hope of All the Earth

Written by: Jami Smith

A collection of Christmas music, balancing traditional favorites with original works. Features guest appearances from Shane Barnard of Shane & Shane and Robbie Seay.

Review by Christianity Today: As produced by Will Hunt (Shane & Shane, Apt.Core), Hope’s rootsy pop/rock sounds sharp, immediately apparent from an awesomely funky banjo-driven “What Child Is This?” that also features clav and accordion. There are also nice acoustic pop/rock renditions of “Away in a Manger” (featuring Shane Barnard) and “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” (featuring Robbie Seay). But Smith originals like “Draw Near Emmanuel” and “Birthday of the King” also shine with resplendent harmonies similar to Alison Krauss, and the poetic ballad “Song of Our Savior” could easily become a favorite performance piece at churches. Hope could well be Smith’s best album.

Produced by Will Hunt.
