Where are the new holiday songs?

I have to admit, I really, really love Christmas music.  Specifically, I've always been drawn to the jazzy "couples" songs - "Let it Snow", "Winter Wonderland", etc.  I mean, the cold season has a romance unlike any other time of the year, don't you think?

After singing holiday tunes four nights a week last December at the National Harbor (DC) with Swinglab, it became clear to me that the music world needs some new songs like these.  I was thinking of new songs that feel familiar and in the style. 

I began writing early this year and have five originals ready to record in August, 2012.  I intend to round out the album with some popular and some underplayed covers - each one with something special and with vocals east of Sinatra, west of King Cole.  A big band chart is in the works and a cabaret jazz feeling for most. 

Fans have been asking for an album for two years, and I think this will be the perfect gift debut.

Cost

Recording time: At least two days at Nightsky Studios in Maryland.

Mixing: Done by the producer at Nightsky.

Musicians: In addition to Swinglab, extra soloists, strings, horns, etc.

Licensing: Covers of existing songs

Marketing: Facebook and a press release

CD reproduction: For sale on Amazon.com and CD Baby.  Whatever is leftover from the above-listed will all go here.

Target release date:  NOVEMBER 16, 2012.

Sincerely,

Jason
