New Christmas Project!!!

OK, I’m way behind with my updates, so I’ll try to catch you folks up just a bit.

The Christmas project, tentatively titled Christmas Stories, is well under way. Here is the song list. The first 4 on the list are the traditional/covers, and the other 7 are songs that I wrote:

The First Noel
Jingle Bells (a very fun duet with my wife!)
Joy to the World
Angels (this is a variation/re-work of “angels we have heard on high”)
Song of Gabriel
Merry Christmas to All
Rise Up (co-written with Michael Farren of Pocket Full of Rocks)
My Christmas Eve (co-written with Jimmy Needham, and also a very fun duet with my wife!)
All Things New
Macy’s Parade (a very strange song which may end up being titled “Weird”)

Some of you may remember "Song of Gabriel" from way back when I had it for free download on my old site. And you may have heard "All Things New" here.

One thing that I'm really excited about is that, even on the songs that I didn't write, I added/wrote/re-worked something on the song to make it seem more personal and creative to me. Don't worry, I didn't ruin any classics (I don't think). I just did some fun little tweaks and additions that I think/hope people will enjoy.

I’m very, very excited about the record. I plan to release it on November 1. I’ll give more updates asap. Tell your friends!

But I will say that I’ve already got some Christmas concerts lined up, and I’ll be looking for more dates very soon. I’ll post about that asap.

That’s all for now. More updates soon!
