The Old Bear Records crew and I dug deep into some classic vibe and sounds in writing and recording this album. We tried to get to the heart of that thing that draws us back year after year to the timeless classics.
I've been blown away by the early response to the album, and if you're holding out until the day after Thanksgiving to listen to it, I won't hold it against you because that's usually me. I have to say though, that working on Christmas music for the past year (from writing in the bleakness of February to recording in the heat of August) has changed me into a much more festive person because of how much I've been drawn to contemplating the importance of the incarnation of Christ. It truly is of supreme importance and worthy of celebration 12 months a year.
Thank you for your support and interest in the project, I truly hope it will find its place among the favorites you return to every year when you're celebrating with your friends and loved ones.
I'll leave you with the quote that inspired track 3, 'Dickens Song':
