For years, at least since the first Projekt Records Christmas record, Excelsis-A Dark Noel was released, I wanted to write some original Christmas tunes. I even tried to do it.
I tried. But the songs were ...well...crap. Earlier this year I wrote some I sort of liked. I set up some studio time with William Faith. Then I decided the songs needed work and I wasn't in the mood for that.
I was, however, saved by the bell. William's band, The Bellwether Syndicate, was about to go on tour and he didn't have time. I thought "GREAT, I can rewrite these."
Of course, being me, I didn't.
The day we rescheduled to record I was hit by an inspiration and completely rewrote both songs. Even I think they came out well. Scary Lady Sarah even sings back up on one while William and Sam Rosenthal add their musical talents.
There are also two "old standards." on the EP. Be sure to look at your favorite streaming site on the release day. There is even a video (more on that later).
