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.
