Done!

Good news! The Christmas record has been completed after much hard work in plenty of time for its release in September. We're calling it "How Many Kings". We'll likely add ":a Christmas album", or something like that to the title to better describe the record's contents. Marketing. It's important. So I have to say that the record sounds like Downhere, and it sounds like Christmas... kind of a Christmassy, Downherey type deal - with a couple of stylistic surprises. There are epic moments, quiet moments, lighter moments - everything to suit the many moods of the Christmas season. Usually, after we finish a record, I'll send it to my family and some close friends. But this time it's different. If some other artist said me "hey I just finished my Christmas record, wanna hear it?" I think I'd be inclined to respond "hey, um, I'm really happy for you, but let me enjoy the summer and fall first... but I CAN'T wait to hear it!" But truthfully... I can wait. And so must you, my friends, and even my family.
