Please help us finish our next 2 albums and promote them!
In January, Ben and Stephen Lynerd recorded 2 albums in a day and a half. Pulling together some of our favorite musicians to work with, we assembled a team we thought could best represent our musical creations. We were right. It was truly humbling to work with such fine players and singers, as well as a first rate engineer.
"All Together" was titled because it reflects the culmination of hours put into composing and arranging music, practicing, and developing friendships. Put all of that into a room and it's an incredible experience. A mixture of sacred and non-sacred jazz, "All Together" original material, as well as some tunes from dear friends, like Shawn Maxwell and Jonathan Gilley.
"Christmas" again contains original material, and arrangements perfect for the Christmas season.
