Music Monday: Gift Horse

This Music Monday is a little different.  Johnny and I have a little band we play around with sometimes called Gift Horse.  We decided to record a little Christmas diddy this year for fun.  :)



We recorded live vocals and guitar (meaning guitar and vocals happened at the same time, standing around a couple of microphones), and then I laid down some very simple organ and accordion backing tracks.  Johnny added a little extra guitar (because he can't help himself) and then we were done.  It was very simple, quick, and fun.  

If you are interested in downloading it, you can find "Blue Christmas" on iTunes here,  or Amazon here. 

 Happy Monday!  xoxo Katie

    For our Christmas card this year, my husband and I and our 3 young kids did a re-make of "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" It was SO fun! Here's the link if you would like to watch it:
