Another Christmas season is in the books, and we’re so thankful that we got the opportunities to play a few concerts together. Thanks to the churches and organizations that brought us in!
Here are a few photos, and an excerpt from the tour press release, thanks to Biscuit Media in Nashville TN:
Smalltown Poets is unique, as all five-band members are scattered across the country, living in five different cities on both coasts. Only in the first two years of the band’s existence did the band members live in close proximity to each other. Now, on this new Christmas project, all of the original members were able to record together in the studio for the first time in years.
“Through the miracles of modern technology and recording, we have been able to still create music as a band, even though the 5 of us all live in different cities across the country,” states Michael Johnston, lead vocalist. “This opportunity to all come back together to record has been an amazing experience. It felt a lot like coming home.”
After the success of the band’s debut Christmas project “Smalltown Poets Christmas” in 2011, this second holiday album was a welcomed concept. Filled with traditional holiday carols, favorite songs and a few new originals, the album is already receiving rave reviews from those who supported the Pledge Music campaign and received the project before its official release date.
