Welcome to Tinsel and Fire, an alternative christmas album for all those nonbelievers out there.
Yes, it might sound a little odd, a contradiction, even a bit crazy, but I’ve always wanted to write an album for this wonderful time of year, even though I don’t buy the whole christmas story or subscribe to any of the religions built up around it.
I personally see this time of year as an opportunity to spend time with family and friends, exchange presents and generally enjoy myself. I love all the christmas movies, I even love those bad christmas songs as well, but for a long time I’ve searched for festive music that was a little darker, a little edgier, but to no avail.
And that’s what led me here, to Tinsel and Fire. I was inspired to write all these pieces for the many people out there who share the same excitement for christmas as me but without any of the dogma.
So sit back and enjoy these songs, and more importantly, have a great christmas however you choose to celebrate.
