Christmas Time Feel the love tonight Feel the love It's Christmas time Oh it's Christmas time I like the way it feels When everyone's home And when we gather around the tree We drink our minds down It makes us warm Before we have that big feast Enjoying some gracious company Family, friends, and a lover Reminds us that Love is everywhere And everyone should feel it Everyone should feel love tonight Feel the love tonight Feel the love it's Christmas time Oh it's Christmas time Come on down we're gonna be Having fun Getting in the spirit of the season We hear those songs We sing along Put up those decorations Turn all their lights on The smell of pine, peppermint and gingerbread Wood fireplace is burning Reminds us that Love is everywhere And everyone should feel it Everyone should feel love tonight Feel the love tonight Feel the love it's Christmas time Oh it's Christmas time

Winter Love 03:43
Winter Love December comes along You slip your mittens on Take a scarf from the rack Throw a coat upon your back Lace up the boots that you'll wear Step into the winter air And as your soft cheeks turn to red I say that smile fits you well Angel You're beautiful We should dance In the snowflakes that surround us My winter live You're the height of my soul And you are the feeling That calms and warms me A touch of cool against A kiss in elegance And the voices that sing Christmas songs Bring our hearts back to the season And in the days we'll take a walk 'Til the drapes of falling dark And when the sun's final rays Go back to bed It's time for A fireplace Coffee mug We can play In the warm blankets around us My winter love You're the height of my soul I cannot believe you've fallen for me

about

Christmas has always been a special time of year for me. It’s often the only time my whole family is together. Childhood friends are in town to catch up. There is time to reflect on the year and unwind before embarking on a new one. There’s something peaceful, comforting, and romantic in the lit decorations, cool air, and familiar melodies that ring through the season.Over the years, I wrote some Christmas songs that I thought would be fun to record, but I always had other projects and recording something for Christmas wouldn’t occur to me until it was too late to get it together.

Earlier this year in August, I had a few days off from shows. My brother, Jeff, wanted me to take that time to visit him in Miami and record some acoustic demos so he could shop it for gigs in South Florida. I agreed it was a good plan, but mentioned I’d also like to get my Christmas songs down since we would have access to a studio and it was early enough in the year to get something recorded before the holidays. (Yes, it occurred to me that would mean singing about snowflakes in the blistering August heat in South Florida, but I saw an opportunity!)

As we planned our studio sessions, we pondered how we would record the Christmas songs. Since Jeff had been working with a studio engineer buddy who knew some great musicians, we decided to schedule some session players to come in and add some flavor.

What happened over those next few days of recording was extraordinary. It wasn’t just the combination of all the right talents coming together to make each song come to life in just the right way. It was the mingling of beautiful spirits to create a transcendent experience through their unique God-given gifts expressed through music. It was a blast. Each session ended around 4am, but there wasn’t typical fatigue because everyone involved was energized by the process.

In all honesty, I didn’t know if this was even something I would release to the public. My initial thought was that it might be a cool thing to share with family and my most supportive fans to show my appreciation over the holidays. However, the songs came together in a serendipitous way so the logical next step was to share the magic. I hope you enjoy listening to these songs as much as I enjoyed writing and recording them.
