"Stars and Promises" is the title of the new Christmas album, released this holiday season by Peter Mayer.
It features six brand new Peter Mayer songs, including a collaboration with acclaimed hymn writer Herbert Brokering, entitled, "Wings Of Angels."
The album also celebrates traditional carols, such as, "Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel," "Angels We Have Heard On High," "The Little Drummer Boy," and others.
They are performed with fresh arrangements, incorporating a variety of stylistic influences from classical ("Christmas Overture"), folk ("Sing Joy"), popular ("This Christmas") and jazz ("What Child Is This").
On "Stars and Promises," Mayer has added the sounds of Native American wood flute, piano, percussion from around the world, and a string trio, to the distinctive acoustic guitar and vocal work you have heard on his previous offerings, "Spare Tire Orchestra," "Romeo's Garage," and "Green Eyed Radio."
