Not many people think of Christmas in early August, unless you’re Rusty Matyas (Imaginary Cities, Waking Eyes, Weakerthans) and his wife Savanna, who asked Rusty to record some Christmas songs as a gift for family and friends. The project quickly grew to be a larger venture for everyone involved. Rusty arranged and performed all of the instruments on the record while guiding Savanna through her first recording sessions ever.
The Christmas album includes old classics redone with friends such as Jean Guy Roy (Federal Lights), Grand Davidson (Slow Leaves) and Joey Penner (Waking Eyes) who lent their voices for the record. The couple also wanted to create an original song “Under the Mistletoe”.
