AN ORIGINAL CHRISTMAS
Angela C. Howell worked with an array of very talented Friends to create this festive release.
An Original Christmas includes nine new original holiday songs and two very re-imagined traditionals.
You are sure to enjoy the title track, which Angela co-wrote with Bob McDonald. They also composed the fun "Snap Me a Selfie, Santa," the video for which has become a YouTube favorite, featuring Madison White (as the spunky little girl) and Jayson Elliott (as Santa Claus). Two of Arthur J. Howell's originals, Beautiful White and Stranger in Bethlehem, also brighten this recording.
Recorded in New York City (at Kilgore and Bass Hit Studios) and at Black Hill Studio in Plainfield, CT, this music is sure to add joy to your Christmas. Grammy award-winning engineers Dave Darlington, John Danny Madden, and Michael Hopkins helped mix the tracks.
Featured musicians include Eric Anthony, Scott Hopkins, Angela C. Howell, Dave Lang, Chris McBurney, Phil Palonen, Lloyd T. Salisbury, and Brandt Taylor... with added vocals from Madison White and backing vocalists Sam Tambe and Sophia Redfearn.
This CD contains all original music and continues to be a favorite amongst buyers. The music blends a number of styles from folk to pop with a hint of Latin and a dash of Blues.
Included on this album are a number of songs that have become fan favorites. Angela wrote a number of songs on this album (Daffodils, Dreamin', Love for Boys - medea's Lament) and co-wrote Fools Love (with good friend and mentor Bob McDonald).
