Merry X-Mas, folks!

OK, here it is – this year’s third ukulele christmas album, called “Christmas With U”.

For those that don’t know, I play the ukulele. And for the past two years, I’ve recorded a new ukulele christmas record every year, as a present for friends and family. Now I’ve got a third one, and, with the marvelous help of Lee Noble, it’s done, and filled with holiday spirit, ukuleles, songs you’ve never heard, and lots of kazoos.

  1. Christmas Time’s A Comin’
  2. Christmas With U
  3. Blue Christmas
  4. Jingle Bell Rock
  5. Don’t Know Much ‘Bout Hanukkah
  6. Christmas For Cowboys
  7. Christmas Cookies
  8. A Party For Santa Claus

Produced and mixed by Lee Noble @ Radex Studios, Franklin, TN. Artwork by Pete Holm.

– Songs about cookies!
– Songs about cowboys!
A calypso song about Santa!
– And two new ORIGINAL songs “Christmas With U” and “Don’t Know Much ‘Bout Hanukkah”

Listen to it with your family, friends, enemies! I don’t care, it’s the holidays! Don’t skimp on background music. I’m especially proud of “Christmas With U”, “Christmas For Cowboys”, and “A Party For Santa Claus”, so take a listen, and let me know what you think.

If you like it, you can download the other records at, where you’ll find christmas songs about hippotamuses and in Hawaiian. Plus a secret bonus track that may or may not exist, on every record. FOR FREE! Why? Because it’s the holidays…and I only own the rights to three songs (I also wrote a song called “Christmas Upside Down”). So tell your friends, pass ‘em around, that’s it.

Thank y’all for being friends of mine and Happy Holidays all around.
