Nashville, Tenn. — Feelin’ Like Christmas, the debut holiday EP from Dove Award-nominated Curb recording artist OBB, releases at iTunes and other leading digital outlets tomorrow. The three-song set, produced by Justin Ebach, features two original selections penned by OBB and Ebach, as well as a fresh arrangement of “Go Tell It On The Mountain.”
The project’s title cut offers a glimpse into the band’s favorite sights and sounds of the season, while “Christmas Card To You” is a musical greeting encouraging listeners to embrace holiday traditions. “One of my favorite lines in ‘Christmas Card To You’ talks about not being too cool for caroling,” explains OBB’s Zach Oswald. “Don’t be embarrassed— just get out there and enjoy the experience and share the Love God wants us to remember.”
“Our family loves Christmas; it’s our favorite holiday,” Oswald continues. “Being together to celebrate and remember Jesus—God’s amazing gift to us— is what it's all about. We sip eggnog and hot cocoa, watch Christmas movies together, and even get our neighborhood involved in the fun. In that spirit, we hope these Christmas songs help people remember the true meaning of the season as they celebrate.”
All three selections from Feelin’ Like Christmas will be serviced to Christian radio, while "Christmas Card To You" will go for adds at mainstream AC stations this season. In addition, OBB will share the songs in person as part of the “It’s Christmas!” Tour, headlined by Mikeschair. The multi-city tour also features City Harbor and is slated to hit Hudsonville, Michigan; Ottumwa, Iowa; and Cleburne, Texas, among other cities, before concluding December 20 in Kingsland, Georgia.
Bright Side, OBB’s highly anticipated full-length debut, released September 30. Produced by Justin Ebach, the project features 12 selections co-written by the Atlanta-based pop band, including the group's latest single and music video, “That Kind Of Faith.”
Comprised of brothers Zach (lead vocals/keys/guitar), Jacob (lead guitar) and Nich Oswald (drums), OBB rocketed into the spotlight last year with a GMA Dove Award nomination and a slot on NewSong's juggernaut Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, opening for some of the biggest acts in Christian music. Signed by Curb Records in 2012 after gaining national notoriety on CBS Early Show’s “Singing Family Face-Off,” OBB’s acclaimed self-titled EP released last year.

The fig I found in a local big box store had already been trimmed into a lovely miniature tree with an unusual trunk. Little did I understand what it takes to train a plant into a bonsai, and what that process would teach me about God.
