Help Tristen press three of her favorite holiday songs on a 7-inch vinyl record by donating to the Tristen Decks the Halls Kickstarter by November 30, 2011!

Over the past three years, each December recorded a holiday song for Jeremy Ferguson's annual Xmas podcast Battlepod. This year they added a few finishing touches and are asking for donations, with superb incentives, to release a real live artifact that you can touch, feel & most importantly play on your record player as you trim the tree this holiday season!

This record, Decks the Halls, will include Tristen's rendition of the holiday classics Blue Christmas (Billy Hayes & Jay W. Johnson), Winter is Blue (Vashti Bunyan) & Frosty The Snowman (Steve Nelson & Walter E. Rollins). Decks the Halls includes performances by Sharpneck Buddy Hughen, Ponychase Jordan Caress, Sam's Myth Sam Smith & Mr. Jimmy Matt Rowland. Sam Smith also contributing artwork and photography by Bekah Cope.

Proceeds from your donation will pay musicians, artists, and engineers, pay for materials to make journals, knit scarves, screen print posters & lastly, get the dang recordings pressed! THE MOST IMPORTANT PART! So please please help if you can!
