Everyone needs an awesome holiday album that they love to listen to. Well Cadence is working hard on that holiday album.
We're Aaron, Carl, Kurt, and Ross - the Cadence boys - and we've got an exciting project in the works that we'd love to share with you.
After three albums, thirteen years, and lots of encouragement from fans, friends, and family, we've decided that's it's time to put out a holiday album. The mixes are sounding fantastic so far! We're sure that you're going to love it!
For those of you who don't know, an a cappella album takes a lot of time and a lot of money to record. Our last album, Speak Easy, took three years from beginning to end, and cost us tens of thousands of dollars!
"Where does all the money go?" you ask. No, we're not taking limos to the studio everyday, and eating caviar by the poolside. Studio time is expensive. We have to hire engineers, rent equipment, and pay for studio space. Let's not forget photography, album design, post-production, mastering, printing, publicity, and all the royalties to cover. In short - it is a major undertaking.
Why do we do this? Because we love creating new albums! It has been such a joy to work up this new material, to experiment with new sounds and exciting new arrangements, and to share the studio with our talented production team. Finally, we are doing this because over the years we've received so many requests to put out a holiday record. Thirteen year later, and we're finally taking you up on it! The final product will include seasonal favourites, some jazzy re-interpretations, and a few more surprises.
We would be so grateful if you would forward this video along to your family and friends. Any support you can give would be greatly appreciated! And for your support? Excellent swag! Whoever heard of having your holiday shopping taken care of in September?
Thank you so much for taking the time to watch our video, and for your continued support.
Yours in harmony,
The Cadence boys
