About

Everybody wants a penguin and some fresh new Christmas songs. 

I'm a December baby and so was my daddy. Maybe it was because our Christmas presents always said "Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas," but Christmas always seemed like our holiday, like it belonged especially to us.

My love of Christmas has led me to write countless Christmas songs. It's my favorite subject to write about.  I have written TOOOOOO many for one project, so this EP is simply the best I have to offer. My top 6 Christmas songs of all time. 

Mike Farona, who produced Your Cigarette with me, shares my love of Christmas. We started planning this EP in October, but we need your help to see it through.

This is going to be a Christmas to remember and I want to share it with my friends and fans. I want to share one-on-one time with the most important people in my world! I have included the kinds of rewards I would want to experience, special unique things and experiences you can't get from any other project. 

I'll show you around Nashville, paint something fancy for your wall or write and record a song with you. I can come to your office or house and sing Christmas songs. If there's a reward you can think of that I didn't, let me know! I'm eager to share the holidays with everyone in my circle in 2019!

Risks and challenges

Some of the more personal rewards will be hard to schedule, so some of these may not be able to fit in before Christmas. Don't worry, though! I will jump through hoops to make everything happen as well as we can! I want to see you this Christmas!!!

    Cutting Carols

    Come to my home studio and record a song with me!

You'll be responsible for travel and lodging. If you want to schedule before the CD is done, no problem. As soon as the project goal is met, scheduling will be open.

    I'll Be Home For Christmas

    I'll come sing at your Christmas Party at your house! I know hours and hours of Christmas songs, not just the ones I'm recording on this EP. I can entertain your family and friends for your personal home party or your office party. I will bring my guitar and sound system and we'll sing carols all night.

    First come first served for the schedule!

    House concerts outside of a 100 mile radius of Nashville cost extra depending on travel and time consumed. All extra travel, food and lodging expenses will be additional. If I have to fly to you, sound system rental fees may also be incurred, but we can make this happen. I'm not afraid to travel.

    My Christmas schedule gets tight, so purchase immediately if you want to make this a Christmas party. Otherwise, I can come any time after the project goal is met. A summer BBQ in 2020 or your 40th anniversary are also valid scheduling options.

    Includes:
    • Digital Download with bonus track
    • Gift wrapped CD
    • Homemade Christmas ornament
    • A public thanks in the liner notes
    • Invite-only FB live video footage of studio sessions
