Ghosts of Xmas Past CD cover

"Ghosts of Christmas Past" continues to be available in limited quantity through this website as well as iTunes, Projekt, Amazon and CD Baby. This unique, ethereal collection combines 5 original alongside 5 seasonal holdiay classics, including the Dr. Seuss' classic "Welcome Christmas," as well as an orchestral melding of Pachabels Cannon with "The First Noel," and a haunting and beautiful rendering of "Silent Night."

 

The new collection of Christmas recordings "Dead of Winter" is finally available after many unforseen delays. This makes a wonderful companion disc to "Ghosts of Christmas Past" and continues where the previous CD left off, though there is only one original holiday ballad on this collection of carols. Still beautifully arranged with a hint of darkness, and featuring (as always) soprano female vocals over lush synth textures and softly stummed acoustic guitar. Enjoy ethereal interpretations of classics like "O Holy Night" and "Angels We Have Heard On High" as well as electronic soundscapes of "Love Came Down At Christmas" and the pagan "Gloucestershire Wassail."

The New CD features new vocalist Jennifer Jones and new guitarist John Guffey. This new pairing is working together with founder Matthew Ervin on a new collection of cover songs featuring mostly interpretations of songs from the eightees, with a few from the surrounding decades sneaking in there as well. Songs from artists as diverse as a Flock of Segulls, U2, Grandaddy, Red Rockers, and the Violent Femmes are all being explored and reworked, but not in the way you've heard them before.

Don't forget you can stream or download free songs online at Download.com, The In dependant Artist Company, Amazon, CD Baby, MySpace, Pure Volume, Band Space and Indie 911. Please visit the Music page of this web site for free and exclusive music downloads. This month's free song downloads are Isolation & Atmosphere by Joy Division and Pearly-Dewdrops' Drops by the Cocteau Twins

Other downloads have/will include covers of "Black-Eyed Dog" by Nick Drake, as well as Gary Numan's "Down In The Park" and the Pixies "Wave of Mutilation" to name but a few. We will attempt to switch out songs every few weeks, so stop back frequently to look for new music to listen to...and we are also looking for more friends on MySpace, so please add us!
