Presenting: A Very Ohio Christmas

MP3: Children Go

Those of you who have hung around this website over time may know that I have an unhealthy appetite for Christmas music. I love it. From the obscure to the mainstream, I am always trying to add to my collection. I’ve always wanted to put out a holiday compilation of my own, and with the help of Joel Oliphint and Joe Long from Each Note Secure, we’ve done it!

A Very Ohio Christmas is a digital-only release and features 16 songs of brand new Christmas songs, a few recognizable favorites, and a few great semi-obscure classics. Featuring bands from all over Ohio, everyone donated their time and put in a lot of hard work to make this happen in a relatively short time period. In addition, Clinton Reno did the album artwork and Electraplay mastered the album as well as let many of the bands record at their studio.

100% of proceeds will go to Gracehaven in Columbus OH. Gracehaven is a 501(c) 3 organization that raises awareness about the issue of domestic minor sex trafficking and also seeks to provide shelter and rehabilitation to girls who have been victims of commercial sexual exploitation.

We’re asking you to pay $10 for the album (a bargain), but if you’d like to donate more, you’ll be able to do that at check out.
