"December"--a Holiday CD--will be my second release as a singer-songwriter and will feature original songs, carols, and standards.

My Holiday CD -- titled December -- will be ready to ship around Thanksgiving. As a life-long singer-songwriter, I've only recently launched my recording career. My first CD, Bring Love Home, was released two years ago and included ten originals and several standards. Several video performances can be found on my YouTube channel, cahassett49. Just search for Chris Hassett and you'll find me pretty quickly. My version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" is my most popular video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnEWJZenBPM

December will include several originals but there is so much great holiday music that I just had to give the lion's share of CD real estate to the carols and standards I've loved since boyhood. I thought it might feel strange singing holiday music in August and September but it has been fantastic--and a real joy collaborating with my friend and accompanist Drew Massicot day after day, week after week.

We'll be laying down final tracks in the next couple weeks and I'm having final photography and graphics work done this month, too. I'm so excited to hear how Kickstarter can help independent artist and musicians like myself. I don't consider this a handout at all--I plan to give everyone real value for the support I get—signed CDs, with personal messages and a thank you card, sent to the address you provide. Even an international option! Thanks for the help!
