New Holiday Songs -AND- Remixes

ccMixter has an annual holiday remix project.  As an enthusiastic contributor on ccMixter, I wanted to do my best to participate.  You may be aware of my lack of holiday spirit.  Well, one of the great things about ccMixter is the open-mindedness of its community.  Last year, I wrote a song called "Please Don't Wish Me a Merry Christmas."  It was received quite well AND it was included in this years double album release The Best Time of the Year (which you can download for free). 

Okay, so long story short, I wrote two songs and I hope you dig them.  Below you can listen and follow the links to download the tracks.  There are also a few awesome remixes.  (Thank you, remixers!!!)  I wish you the happiest of holidays.  If you don't celebrate (like me), I wish you love, patience, and a happy, happy New Year!

Kara Square Songs Included on "The Best Time of the Year" Double Album

The-Best-Time-of-the-YearI am extremely happy to share that two Kara Square songs were included in the double album The Best Time of the Year by ccMixter and Jamendo.  I also lent a hand in producing the album (with Snowflake, Copperhead, sackjo22, and go1dfish) and creating back cover art.

Guess what?  You can download BOTH albums for free on TuneTrack and on Jamendo!  My songs are part of the second side- the one called The Best Time of the Year?  The-Best-Time-of-the-YearMy little atheist ditty "Please Don't Wish Me A Merry Christmas" is the first track.  "Our Last Christmas" is the fifth track.  It was composed by Snowflake and Vladimir Sterzer.  Snowflake wrote the lyrics and sings the lead vocals.  I added backup harmonies, glockenspiel, and mixed/produced it.   You can learn more about the albums on the ArtisTech Media's official press release.

Small White Dog - Blog Mention!

Tony Russell


My dear and talented friend, Moira Waugh, is writing a novel about a small white dog named Tony Russell.  In the novel, this incredible little pup can verbally impart his observant canine wisdom to us human-folk.  To help coach us along, he has started a blog called Small White Dog (also the name of the forthcoming novel)!  I feel completely honored that Tony Russell has picked my tune "A Heart With Your Name On It" as his song of the week!  How kind!  (And wise!)  

So hey- all you dog and pet lovers, please check out and comment on Tony's blog.  It's quite clever and very humorous... and ya' might just learn something.  There will be regular updates every Sunday.  I'll definitely be checking in.  Thank you, Tony and Moira!
