ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The long-anticipated Christmas album from Striving Artists is finally here! After 8 months of recording sessions, producer Greg Luzitano unleashes a whopping 50 tracks over the span of 2 CDs. With SAC friends old and new, including studio versions of 19 songs from the first three years of Striving Artists Christmas shows, Greg Luzitano's arrangements aim to reinvent perennial favorites, while drawing from a multitude of genres and styles to make what he calls a "mixtape for people who don't ordinarily listen to Christmas music". For those people, the album should convince them to give these songs another chance. And for those who love Christmas music, the album will give them new and inventive ways to hear their favorites.
