ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is a magical Christmas album that offers both original and classic holiday favorites, delivered with so much soul, funk and inspiration, you may be listening well after the Christmas decorations have been taken down and stored in the attic! Whether you’re naughty or nice, this is a “must-have” for everyone’s Christmas Playlist!

Born and raised in Southern California, Carlson grew up in an artistic family. He developed an appreciation for music early on and at the age of ten he began writing songs, playing guitar and eventually found himself performing in local bands throughout high school. Upon graduation, Steve traveled quite a bit, until he fell in love with Hawaii where he lived for over two years. It was there that he honed his songwriting and began playing the mandolin and steel guitar, which he plays on this record. In addition, he plays banjo on the record as well. Along with David Olivas on saxophone and piano, Steve Dress on bass and Tim Jimenez on drums, a few other special guests join in to complete the joyous, short-but-sweet album.

With a legion of fans across the country, as a result of heavy touring, a strong Internet presence has helped solidify Carlson's fan-base. His songs are heartfelt and bursting with freewheeling energy, that make club concerts into sing-a-long events.

Carlson has cooked up a recipe that'll satisfy the appetites of those passionate fans with "An Auld School Christmas." His voice is like sandpaper dipped in Tupelo honey and he wields it like a master chef, adding a spoonful of blues, a dash of jazz, a cup full of folk-rock and a big helping of blue-eyed soul. And food is more than just a metaphor for Steve. He can cook like a superstar too, having been trained as a chef.

Currently residing in Hollywood, Steve has had several original songs placed in film and television projects including "Kinda Crazy These Days" placed in the ABC show "Men In Trees", "Night Time" placed in the WB's "Supernatural" last year. One track on the album, "Now That My Love Is Gone", has been placed in the upcoming film, "Be My Baby". Other films in which Steve's had song placement include "Just Married", "Life Or Something Like It", “Memore”, etc.

As a Steve fan you can'really miss this CD. I'm glad to say that I'll be listening to this up to and on Christmas day now, love his version of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and the original You, Me and a Christmas Tree.

Santa's list...
Ya know, it's sorta nice to know sometimes even Santa has a soft spot for the people who never quite make the 100% nice list. And, in a time, when you get tired of the same old, monotonous Christmas songs, droning on and on, it's nice to hear a newer version, in a soulful and sultry voice. Who needs a hot toddy or hot chocolate for the holidays, when you can get a shot of smooth whiskey via music?

My favorite Christmas album!

Elke

Hooray!
What a wonderful album! And it arrived just in time when I thought if I hear "Last Christmas" one more time I'm gonna scream *g*
Just one teeny tiny thing - it's too short!! Steve, what about Part Two...?

Kat Coll

Wow!
I was reluctant to buy this, given that I really dislike - okay, hate- most Christmas music. However an online friend posted about how she LOVED the album and I thought "what the heck". I actually gave it a listen very early (before Halloween even) and was wonderfully surprised! It's a great album and I'm very glad I bought it! Definitely something I'd recommend.

I'm not really into Christmas songs but could I resiste the Steve Carlson band? Of course not! It's really nice as always and You, me and a Christmas tree has been stuck in my head for the past week now!

Brilliant
I have nothing against christmas songs really, but very few have ever been as worth listening to as these. Another great album from a fantastic artist. Highly recommended.

Just love it!
Just what I need for some Christmas feeling ;)
One of my favorite artists singing Christmas songs... Wouldn't need more christmasy CDs than just this one if it was just a little longer.

It's fun. It's funky. It's festive. And it's Steve. Wonderful vocals and lyrics. Great Job, Steve!!!

An Auld School Christmas
I bought this album in June and have listed to it already. Why I Like It: Listen to Auld Lang Syne. Over the years I had come to dislike this song greatly but Steve and the band have convinced me it is not a bad song. Take a listen and hear for yourself.
