The Fantastical Amazingly Jesus Christmas album is a collection of beloved Christmas songs that have been fine-tuned over the past several years as my friends and I have played our annual Christmas concerts. We bend well known songs and twist them into some pretty fantastical amazing arrangements. Every year we get the same question, “Are you ever gonna record the Fantastical Amazingly Jesus Christmas music?”

This is the year, but we need your help!

This is the way many music projects work these days. Rather than trying to find a record company to front the money for studio time, production, musicians, artwork, manufacturing and distribution—many artists raise the money for their projects by pre-selling the album and offering their fans, friends and supporters the opportunity to help make the music come alive through various packages and incentives. We live in an amazing time.

The project will be recorded and co-produced by the amazing Alan Doss.
Musicians will also include Johnny Simmons, David Wallace, Mandy Campbell, Rob Leslie, Rob Camper and Kemper Crabb.

The Songs: 
Joy to the World
Hark the Herald Angels
Silent Night
ChristmasDay
Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
O Come O Come Emmanuel
Ave Maria
O Come All Ye Faithful
Angels We Have Heard on High 

The $8,000 gets the project done but we also have a "stretch goal." If we are able to raise $15,000, then we will film the concert and release it as a concert movie.

We hope you will consider generously helping us bring this project to life.
