Last year I released Christmas Time Vol. 1 on this day Dec 15th.

It took 3 weeks working with some incredibly talented people to bring the vision together. I am extremely proud of that album and we have received amazing reviews all year long. People continuing to ask “are you going to do another one?”.


As long as I’m capable, I’m going to be rounding up folks to make sweet holiday jams 😀

This year we had around 20 musicians take part in recording these songs over a 4 week period and I can not explain how truly talented, humble, and professional everyone is. It lifts my spirits and brigs me more joy than most things in life to spend so much time cooped up in the studio working on music with these people.

Since I can not be everywhere at once, and as always I give myself a short, unrealistic deadline, I had several people record some of these tracks on their own. Shout out to Bill Snyder III and Peter Koenig for the engineering support on a couple of the songs.

I can’t say enough nice things about the people that were a part of making this album happen, I hope you all know how much I appreciate you and I look forward to making much more music with you.

We already have plans for the next two years of albums so be sure to tell your friends.

Thank you all so much for listening, working with me, sharing this, and enjoying these songs.
