Good news: We’re going to let you unwrap your gift from us early this year. Megatrax has tucked SIX new Christmas releases under the tree, and we’re not going to make anyone wait until December 25 to open them! Joining the three that dropped earlier this year, MX308 A Cappella Vocals, MX317 Christmas Shopping 2 and ZST019 Warm & Wonderful Zestmas, are three new servings of holiday cheer: MX320 Orchestral Christmas, MX324 Country Christmas Songs and BIB046 Ho Ho Ho.
Turn to MX320 Orchestral Christmas for magnificent festive and heartwarming Christmas themes featuring a live 60-piece orchestra and solo vocalists. Let MX324 Country Christmas Songs take you home for the holidays and spike the eggnog with moonshine while you crank up original and classic Christmas songs, cooked up Southern-style with fiddles, pedal steel guitars, and full vocals. And rock your shopping with BIB046 Ho Ho Ho.
Country Christmas Songs executive producer JC Dwyer shares that Brett Boyett contributed the original “Redneck Family Christmas” to the down-home album. Valerie Peterson helped turn up the heat with “It’s Christmas Time We’re Havin’ A Ball,” a country rock original, as well as the amazing Texas Swing cuts “Honky Tonk Holiday” and “A Texas Merry Christmas.” And all full vocals on the album were recorded by the “Nashville Dare Devil All-Stars” in Nashville. Merry Christmas to YOU!
Ron Mendelsohn, executive producer of Orchestral Christmas, is excited about Megatrax’s first ever Christmas release featuring live orchestra. Ron says: “There is a wide-ranging mix of arrangements and original pieces. Some of the arrangements are quite contemporary, including our ‘trailerized’ version of ‘Carol of the Bells.’ The album was recorded in Europe, in Bratislava (Slovakia), with live 60-piece orchestra. Electronic sweetening was added for several tracks back in our studio for the hybrid tracks such as ‘Carol of the Bells.’ We also recorded the magnificent live vocals for ‘O Holy Night’ at Megatrax Studios.”
Orchestral Christmas was composed, arranged and orchestrated by renowned Hollywood composer Peter Bateman.
