I started this project one afternoon when I wrote "Raining in Martinsburg". Incidentally, it was raining that day, and as I looked out my bedroom window the first verse hit me. After writing the song I decided to do a live recording of the song in my living room that evening. As I was setting up my recording equipment in front of the Christmas tree I thought I might try recording a couple other songs as well, and behold, the LIVE Christmas EP was born! I think I recorded, mixed, and mastered these three songs in about 4-5 hours and then immediately started planning the release. I loved recording these songs the way I did with just a microphone, guitar, and my living room. It really is an inspiring way to capture the energy and love in a song and its performance.
I hope you all enjoy this little record and I thank my family, friends, and every single person who has helped and supported me thus far in my career. I hope you all will continue with me on my journey!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Track Name: Raining in Martinsburg LIVE
It’s raining in Martinsburg
In the cold winter air
There’s fog in the trees
Down by the stream
I look out my window
To the evergreen trees
Ever so alive
In the chill of the cold

Here I know I can see
Families buying trees
To decorate at home
Holly and wreaths on their doors
For all they stand for
With love and joy

It’s raining in Martinsburg
In the December breeze
There’re smiles all around
On this Christmas eve
Nothing competes
With the smiles from the kids
Watching satellites
In hopes it’s Saint Nick

Here I know I can see
Families buying trees
To decorate at home
Holly and wreaths on their doors
For all they stand for
With love and joy

It’s snowing in Martinsburg
On this Christmas day
The tree is alight
And the star is in place
The fireplace is glowing
With the embers that still burn
As families get their presents
All around the world
