Taking a Quick Breather

Dec 15, 2011   //   by bcp   //   News  //  No Comments

Just taking a breather before our last Christmas show tonight. It’s been a pretty good season– we’ve enjoyed playing for some large groups in a variety of places over the past week and a half– a posh country club, a large church, and even a jewelry store. We’ve enjoyed the audience interaction and positive comments at each one, but I think last night’s has to move to the top of our list. We were at a Rehab/Rest Center for a Family Night Holiday party. The tables were nicely decorated and snack buffet set up in an adjoining room. Family members brought in their loved ones, most all in wheel chairs. We greeted a few “regulars” we knew from our monthly visits, where we sing with the residents on Sunday afternoons. It was wonderful to hear people singing with us– they especially seemed to enjoy “Jingle Bells,” where we had everyone with keys become our percussion section, “Frosty,” “Rudolph”, and the “12 Days of Christmas.” One man came to us after returning his wife to her room and said, “Thanks a million. You got my wife to do something she hasn’t done in three years– sing!” Other family members commented on how their loved ones had sung every word of the songs. It felt so good to spread some Christmas cheer! We have a small party to sing for tonight of mostly kids– should be fun! Then onto more practice and the Christmas Eve service at church.

Even before its release, “Long Awaited King,” The Braeded Chord’s 5th CD, is getting good reviews! Here’s what Andrea Guy from “ReviewYou” has to say:

“The Braeded Chord have given listeners the best Christmas gift of all with Long Awaited King, an album of holiday music that is simple and powerful in its message. Through classic songs and new material, the real meaning of Christmas shines through. This is an album that will be a must-listen when you are trudging through the mall looking for the perfect gift and wondering what the season is all about. The music on Long Awaited King is the best reminder.”

Old and new are blended and rearranged, providing listeners with a pleasing mix of folk, rock, pop and jazz. Have a listen at the “rocking-est” track of the project:

TBC Christmas CD Goes Into Design & Production

Oct 17, 2011   //   by bcp   //   News  //  No Comments

Last Friday, after what seemed like weeks in the studio, we said good-bye to our friends at BIAS Studios and walked out with final mastered tracks in our hot little hands. We are really excited about being to this stage. Now, we’re working with designer Erin Kuhlenbeck to put the “package” together for the CD production company.

The CD, “Long Awaited King,” features artwork on the cover by California artist Anne Moore, a printmaker. Her linocut, “Sanctuary,” depicts a lush green garden as seen through a closed gate. Inside, Sharon writes, “There is a desire in every heart, a longing to enter the lush sanctuary of God’s love. Many times, it is in the waiting that we feel closest to God and can hear His voice the best. So as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, we also honor the season of waiting, particularly in waiting for his return as King. May this season be one of awe, wonder and excitement!”

Ten tracks of original compositions and innovative arrangements of traditional music for the Christmas season, “Long Awaited King” is everything from intimate acoustic piano and guitar stylings to celtic fiddle jig to joyful rock, all framing the tandem harmony of The Braeded Chord. We’d love for you to hear a sneak preview of one of the tracks.
