ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Echoes Of The Season is the newest Christmas release from Peter Mayer. It was produced in response to the many requests, after the last two Stars and Promises tours, for instrumental Christmas songs and carols that were being played live, but not offered on any of the existing CDs. We set to work in July and recorded nine traditional and three original carols. As an added feature, we included vocal versions of "Go, Tell It On The Mountain," recorded live in the studio, and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," as well as a choir arrangement of "The Light Of Christmas Day," written by Peter Mayer.

Echoes Of The Season features many of the musicians that have appeared with Stars and Promises over the years: Jim Mayer on bass, R. Scott Bryan on percussion, Mark Holland on flute, Emily Randle on violin, Melissa Streuli on violin, Gary Hodges on cello, as well as guest appearances from Mac McAnally on vocals and guitar, Roger Guth on drums, Chris Walters on piano, Jon Nellen on tabla, as well as Tina Gullickson and Nadirah Shakoor on vocals.

"I hope this collection of carols, old and new, stirs a memory or calls you in some way to the wonder of the Christmas season; a season to be surprised by hope. To be shown the way of peace, to become a child again, like the sound of laughter, shouts of good cheer, and the northwind dancing, may you hear their echoes long into the new year." Peter Mayer

Tamara Turner, CD Baby


Produced in response to many requests for instrumental Christmas songs and carols that were being played live but were not offered on any of the existing CDs, Echoes of the Season, powered by guitarist, songwriter and vocalist, Peter Mayer, beautifully threads unassuming folk with lush jazz harmonies with slight world music coloring as well. Joined by instrumentalists who also appeared with Mayer in his live concerts, this classy and heartwarming disc of Christmas favorites brings on board Emily Randle and Melissa Streuli on violin, Gary Hodges on cello, as well as guest appearances from Mac McAnally on vocals and guitar, Roger Guth on drums, Chris Walters on piano, Jon Nellen on tabla, and Tina Gullickson and Nadirah Shakoor on vocals. Gentle echoes of Mayer's background growing up in India gracefully saturate a few of the songs as do slight touches of Celtic folk and Native American. For a well-rounded holiday album that touches the heart with the seasonal spirit, delicately sentimental while maintaining a solid songwriting awareness, this twinkling 12-track beauty settles ever so nicely into just about any Christmas collection.
