about

We usually look for the Christmas and holiday season to be a time of joy, excitement and good cheer.  And hopefully that's the case...

However, it can also be a time when loneliness, struggle, grief and disappointment are also present and often unacknowledged.

For many, the holidays are a mix of both.

“The Longest Night” is an eight song collection of well-known instrumental carols and original compositions exploring themes of longing, lament, nostalgia and hope that are experienced around the holidays.

With introspective and thoughtful arrangements, "The Longest Night" is a comforting companion along the journey of the holiday season.

Track Name: Some Of Us
Some of us have
Some of us don't
Some of us will
And some of us won't

Some of us hope
And some of us try
Some of us miss
And some of us sigh

Some of us long
For a place to call home
Some of us have one
And still feel alone

Some of us hurt
When some of us leave
Some of us smile
And some of us grieve

Some of us dream
And some of us ask
Why all this waiting
And when will it pass
