from the heart
Our music - Our thoughts
Lorie and Todd Richmond are friends of ours and they love Christmas. We know for sure that Todd does! We don't remember exactly how it went down, but at the end of three months (or so) of writing, we had five original Christmas songs, and we know it started with them.
The thought of doing a Christmas album did anyway. Coincidentally, the Indie label we do our projects with did a promotion for a Christmas EP. Because we did projects in the past, we knew that all artists have to record original songs, so obviously if we were going to take the deal, we had to write original stuff. However, apparently the common practice is to record re-worked Christmas songs, you know, the ones we all grew up listening to. Well, we didn't.
The producer was surprised (impressed?) that we did. We are hoping that everyone is truly blessed by the project. The songs focus us to the real reason for Christmas, "That First Christmas" as the EP is entitled.
