Get Christmas today.
It’s release day for a rather important project for me. Here I offer my meanderings on a few Christmas favorites.
(Add this to all or your holiday playlists now so you don’t forget to listen to it when the season arrives!)
Having worked for some years on the production end of the album-creation process, it’s fun to be here as the music maker.
Thanks to Dan Merceruio and Aaron Campbell without whom this collection of tunes would have been a ghost without a body—an idea without a home. Thanks to my wife Briana for the gentle (and not so gentle) encouragement along the way and her “just do it” attitude in creative matters.
Thanks also to the team I work with every day at Sono Luminus: Collin J Rae, Daniel Shores, Allison Noah, Jessica Shores. I’m inspired by the great music we get to nurture. The knowledge and insight I’ve gleaned along the way have helped lead to the creation of this album.
Additionally, each artist who has come through Sono Luminus has taught me something about making music in a constantly-evolving industry. I’m grateful for every little lesson.
Thanks to Antoinette Van Beck for the cover photo and to Ariel Nei and Lori McKinley for documenting the creation visually.
To my children, Ariel, Ellis, and Issac: thanks for being amazing and loving Christmas.
