How Many Kings Songs For Christmas

How cool is this? Today we release our very first Christmas album. This is also the first album we fully self produced.

You may be wondering what kind of arrangement of these songs you can be expecting. Well of course we have some fun as you'll hear in Good King and We Wish You and 5 Golden Rings. Jeremy has a short solo, a vocal solo that is. Jason's dog makes a brief appearance. This is the second album in a row for us with trombone on it. (That's odd.) I (Glenn) use a Juno award for percussion, as well as a mixer.

You'll also hear songs of praise and songs of reverence to our new born savior. Songs like Silent Night, Glory To God and What Child Is This. Marc also sings in his native French for the first time on this album.

We added some strings to the original version of How Many Kings to update that one a little. Then we thought it would be cool to "cover" our own song. So we recorded a completely different version of How Many Kings with Jason singing. New harmonies new ideas but still the same song. I think it turned out very cool.

So there's a brief preview for those of you who haven't heard it and for those of you who have now you have something to listen for!

To order now you can click here and we'll send you one or you can click here and download it from itunes. If you have the time there are a couple things you could do to help spread the word.
1. Add you review to whatever site you picked it up from.
2. Review it on your Facebook page
3. Let your friends know you just bought the album by updating your Facebook/Twitter status and give them a link to do so too!

Below are a few links to articles and reviews about the new album.

It did. It's my favorite track.

Good job, guys!

This is definitely a cd I want to get! Especially after those sneak peek videos you showed us. I look forward to hearing it!

By the way, are y'all coming to Wakeshua, WI again on the Christmas tour? Please do!

My 4 yr. old daughter loves We Wish You which I sing to here *every* night. Well, my singing has been replaced by your very fine and far superior rendition! Love Gift Carol, What Child is This, and Silent Night especially. Thank you!
