Home For Christmas – Preorder Now!

Posted on: 10/16/14

Tom Wopat and John Schneider have recorded a holiday album together, “Home for Christmas,” which will be released on October 28th! You can preorder the album now through Tom’s webstore, or else download from iTunes on the 28th. Here is the link to order: http://tom-wopat.myshopify.com/

 

About the album, Tom said “I think this is a fresh take on the Christmas album. Jazz fans and serious musicians will appreciate what we’ve done with theses tunes. Our arranger John Oddo has a true affinity for that classic 50s and 60s sound. He really nails it. Tedd Firth is a major talent and a creative voice. And, of course, I love singing with John Schneider. The timbre of our voices match, the harmonies blend so easily. Plus, he’s a barrel of laughs.”

 

John also said “Tom and I really bring out the best in each other. We may not sound alike when we talk, but when we sing sometimes you can’t tell us apart. In the studio, I put him first and he puts me first. If that’s not friendship, I don’t know what is.”

 

The guys will celebrate the new CD in New York City with a concert at Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater Dec. 2 at 9:30 PM. You can get tickets HERE.

 

They will also be performing at John’s recording studio in Louisiana on December 6th, stay tuned for more information and a ticket link for that!

 

Listen to “Cool Yule” here, we’ll be releasing more music over the next few weeks. Enjoy!
