Every year, from a quiet and snowy wood near Lake Michigan, the ever-acroamatic Brad Peterson writes and records an annual holiday song in a hand-constructed garden shed studio. Just a few months after the release of “the unknown album“, comes his 2018-2019 offerings.
With some of the lyrics inspired by a postcard sent in 1912, this song attempts to convey a feeling of a holiday celebration with friends and family.
Written, performed, and produced by Brad Peterson
