Here is a classic mid-century style Christmas pop album recorded in 2007!
Christmastime holds many meanings and special memories for many people. For me, Christmastime holds the recollection of my very first public singing performance. I'll never forget how nervouse I was warbling "Silent Night" as a 14-year old freshman at my high school's 1983 Christmas program (especially since a kid in the choir behind me kept poking me in an effort to make me mess up)! Nevertheless, I kept my composure and survived the presentation, not realizing that pivotal moment was the beginning of a joyous pastime that would eventually blossom into a gratifying singing career!
For my gifted collaborator and orchestrator of this album Sean Baker, Christmastime holds the fond memory of creating two wonderful holiday songs for the Singing Hoosiers during our college days at Indiana University in 1992: "Hoosier Holiday," a tribute to our Indiana heritage that could easily pass for a promotional theme for the state's tourism campaign, and "The First Gift," which Sean originally created with mutual friends Heather Skiver and Jay Denhart (that has now been reincarnated for this album as "The Best Gift").
Whatever Christmastime holds for you, on behalf of everyone involved with this project, I want to thank you for including us in your holiday activities! The significance of this honor is not lost on us, and for that reason we have striven to do our best to fashion an album that will not only help you and yours celebrate the season, but also create fond memories, too! This collection consists of our own unique presentations of many old favorites (as well as a few new tunes) we hope you'll enjoy for many years to come!
