Conceptualised and written during the chaotic fall months of 2020, O Come All Ye Faithful is a meditation on grace, loss, hope and community. Hiss Golden Messenger leader, songwriter and vocalist M.C. Taylor talks about the inspiration for O Come All Ye Faithful: “Big, brash holiday music—the type that we hear in big-box stores in the middle of December—has never resonated with me, and this past year it felt absolutely dissonant. I wanted to make a seasonal record that felt more in step with the way that I, and so many others, experience this time of year: quiet, contemplative, searching and bittersweet.” Taylor adds, “The intention was to make a seasonal record with vibe.”

Contributors to O Come All Ye Faithful include members of Hiss Golden Messenger’s extended family, as well as special guests that include Grammy Award-winner Aoife O’Donovan, Nathaniel Rateliff, Erin Rae and Buddy Miller.

O Come All Ye Faithful features three new songs written by Taylor, traditional classics, and new renditions of “Shine a Light” by Spiritualized, “As Long As I Can See the Light” by Creedence Clearwater Revival and “Hanukkah Dance” by Woody Guthrie, all arranged in the distinctive Hiss Golden Messenger style.
