Here ya go, the second two Christmas songs from my new EP, “It’s Christmas Time“.
Winter Wonderland is an interesting case as it’s the first “Christmas” song I’ve recorded that’s not really a Christmas song, it’s just celebrating the season of winter but I still associate it with the holidays and it’s just such a pleasant song, I had fun working on it.
Silent Night is one of my very favorite Christmas songs, in the top 5 for sure. I struggled a little bit with my rendition, I went for a capella at first but it just didn’t feel right, then I went way over the top with the arrangement and it got too busy so I had to tone it back down. I think it came out alright, the mood of the song is the most important part to me, the atmosphere. I hope you enjoy these both
Remember you can do whatever you want with these, download them for free, share with friends and family, post on your website/blog/facebook/whatever, put them on your Christmas mix, they’re yours to do with what you will. Don’t forget that while you have the option to pay nothing I’m also accepting donations in whatever amount you feel led to give and I’ll be donating any and all proceeds from this Christmas album to Child’s Play, Compassion International, Blood Water Mission, and Angel Tree.
If you’ve already downloaded the tracks but you feel the desire to donate then you can always use the donation button over there on the right! (Also right here!)
So thanks a lot, tune in next week for the last batch of songs, I’ve saved the best for last, trust me! Pleasant Winter to you or, as they say, Bon Iver!
