Hello Terry, welcome back to BuzzMusic, it’s always a pleasure chatting with you. What a beautiful composition of three tracks that you have released for the holidays. “Silent Nite,” carries such gentle components that allow a pleasing listening experience. How is the creative process different from crafting a record geared towards the holidays versus your previous releases?
Thank you once again for the opportunity, as always I really appreciate it. With this musical venture as I sifted thru alot of Christmas songs Silent Nite and Have Yourself, A Merry Little Christmas kept jumping out as my favorites. I knew it was pretty straight forward to produce, play, and record, I just wanted to add my little twist to them.
Do the holidays hold a special meaning to you? What is your reasoning for carrying out a Christmas project in, 'Love and the Holidays,' EP?
When I was little I had a cousin that would have annual Christmas programs at our church. We would have a little play and sing songs, lots of great memories! I just wanted to again put my twist on these three classics.
Is there a particular track on this EP that is a personal favorite of yours? If so, what’s the reasoning behind it?
I love all three tracks but Silent Nite really sticks out as my favorite track. There's just something about this song and being home decorating the tree at nite with this playing softly in the background that I remember growing up.
What words of wisdom would you like to send out to your listeners to end off 2020?
Man, that's a great question! Let's see..live, love, laugh with reckless abandon every day like it's your last day. Then go smile at a stranger, it just may be the light they need to save their day. Oh, and listen to great music from indy artists, it certainly helps! Happy Holidays everyone!
