Coming Home For Christmas Album
December 08 ,2017
Today I’m proud to release my first-ever holiday album, Coming Home For Christmas. This record has ten original Christmas anthems I wrote earlier this year. I holed up in Orleans, Massachusetts for six days in November and wrote one song per day. Within two days, I tracked the entire album alongside my producer Jon Evans at Brickhill Studios with Jon handling upright bass and Mathias Bossi on drums.
In my family, we’ve always had a strong tradition of caroling and sharing songs on Christmas. My Uncle Bob and I used to lead the family through all of the traditional carols as well as rock ‘n’ roll hits like ‘Summertime Blues’ and ‘Steamroller Blues’. After my Uncle Bob passed, my brother-in-law Juan and I have continued the tradition. There was one of those Christmases back in the day when I got the flu or something and missed the family gathering, so I was home alone and wrote a couple of Christmas carols. ‘Christmas Blues’ and ‘Christmas Cookies’. It was then that I decided I would like to complete a full album of homegrown Christmas carols.
I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it. You can grab it HERE, on Brushfire/Republic Records.
