A couple years ago my friend Michael Gruber invited me over to co-write a tune. We had a title and imagined ourselves writing a new Christmas classic. Somehow the session devolved into playing Foosball, drinking beer, and spinning vinyl. But we did eventually find our way to writing a folk gospel holiday song; a look at the nativity scene from the wisemen's perspective. Let the angel chorus proclaim Hallelujah!
Last year we got around to recording a four part harmony rendition, with some guitar, bass, and percussion. At that point, we thought we'd had our say.
This year, Michael added some more drums and percussion, slide guitar, organ, piano and mandolin samples. An epiphany indeed! A 2012 remix!
The result is now available on CdBaby.com. If you're willing to drop a couple e-bucks you can download a copy to add to your favorite Holiday Playlist. Can you dig it?!
Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!
