Lee Adcock Loved the insert included with the download. Music's excellent too, of course. Passed the "Christmas-music-in-March" test. ; )


My house band of merry robots are back with four more rousing holiday tunes. No singing by them this time around but plenty of old school synth-imbued eggnog mirth and electro-infused sugarplum beats to fill you with yuletide joy.

Out of the blue, on October 7, 2012, I received an e-mail from British DJ Mark Whitby from Dandelion Radio asking if I would be interested in putting together some new tracks for his upcoming December show. I was introduced to Mark and his monthly show earlier in the year by friend and fellow independent producer Paul Foster, aka Dementio13. To my surprise, after sampling my Rauthaz EP Mark decided to play a couple of tunes from Rauthaz during his Spring shows. I had planned on previewing future releases to him but hadn’t planned on new Holiday tunes when his e-mail arrived nearly two months ago. Never one to back down from a musical challenge I said yes!, and promptly set aside my current project to focus on 4 new Holiday tracks for 2012. The catch was that I only had a month due to Mark’s deadlines.

What you are listening to are the results of that months work. Well, only three were done in time for Mark, “Wassail” just didn’t come together in time, but he was grateful for the work and those three tracks became a featured Holiday session for his December show. I’m very proud of these four tracks and I thank Mark for the inspiration to produce them. I hope that you also take some enjoyment from them. Like my 2011 Holiday EP, these are definitely not traditional takes on what are traditional Christmas carols. One of my goals with all four was to take a very seasonal song and make it year-round friendly. Please listen to them again in June and let me know if I succeeded.

As always, thank you for your interest in my music. I greatly appreciate all of you who invest a little time to download or listen to my songs.

Make sure to check each individual song for tidbits and history of each piece.
