House of Power kicks off the Holiday Season with an inspiring Christmas album for the ages..."House of Power presents Christmas Presents for Christmas: Christmas Songs for the Holidays, an Evening with Eggnog in the House of Power". (or, for short, HOPPCPC:CSHEEHOP)
The project was initially conceived by Merchant (vocals, bass) to be a cover album of Christmas songs meant to highlight his unique vocal stylings and love of Christmas music. Band mate Bjornstad (vocals, guitar) added a twist and proposed that the band make it a duet, include some acoustic guitar, and record the entire album while drinking eggnog. The two donned Christmas sweaters and turtlenecks on a cold and snowy December evening; eggnog filled the House of Power, and the magic was born. Recorded in just over 5 hours, the album "House of Power presents Christmas Presents for Christmas: Christmas Songs for the Holidays, an Evening with Eggnog in the House of Power" is an ingenious collection of covers and original interpretations of your favorite Christmas classics. The tracks appear on the album in the order in which they were recorded to capture the eggnogual effects and bring you straight into the studio session. Most tracks were completed in just one or two takes, and the results were so honest, so brilliant that very little to no mastering was needed - it might be thought of as just one screaming audience away from a live album.
House of Power has finally found out what you get when you combine 1 Evening, 1 Jug of Eggnog, 1 Bottle of Bourbon, 2 Turtleneck Sweaters, a dash of talent, and a heaping pile of passion for singing Christmas classics. This Christmas, do not miss House of Power's "House of Power presents Christmas Presents for Christmas: Christmas Songs for the Holidays, an Evening with Eggnog in the House of Power".
