Jd Webb (Jd Webb Music)

I recently had the opportunity to speak with Days of Our Lives songwriter Jd Webb about his upcoming holiday album, his recently released solo album and the songs he creates for the NBC soap.

Jd called while in the middle of mixing his Christmas album, “Home for the Holidays.” When I asked how it was coming along, Jd admitted, “Well, the truth is, until we got to the mix it was going really well. We decided to have a few different producers and they’re in different parts of the country, so getting the mix together has been a bit of a challenge, but it’s coming together and I’m in the home stretch, so I’m really excited.”

Of what some of his favorite songs are and what you can expect on the album he shared, “On this album one of my favorites is, I did “Joyful, Joyful” meets “Joy to the World.” It’s like a really cool arrangement; it’s got like a funky soulful gospel feel to it. I’m loving that. We did a really cool arrangement of “Silent Night” and kind of flipped the vibe for the verses so it’s really heartfelt and from what I’m hearing from people, it’s their favorite “Silent Night” arrangement that they’ve heard. It’s really cool and the string arrangements are great and then the original songs are really fun too.”

Not only has he been working on the holiday album since May, but he has also been busy with his solo album, “The Introduction,” which was released on August 25. In addition, he has been touring and promoting his single “Big For Me,” which has been on the radio for the last few months and is breaking into the Top 40.

If putting two albums out in one year isn’t enough, Jd has also regularly worked on Days of Our Lives, providing the soundtrack for all the love and drama in the afternoon over the past four years.
