Would It Still Be Christmas is a song I wrote in 2000. As I was recording the tracks for it I experienced a massive hard-drive crash and lost almost all of my files. All I had left of this song was a quick mixdown of two guitar tracks and the vocals that I had saved as a .wma file and emailed to a friend for comments.
But that .wma file served me well - it won some prizes on a "Battle Of The Bands" website and in a radio competition in Toronto. Not bad for an unpolished sparse little tune.
This past Sunday (Dec 13 '09) I sang it with SoulJourn (the church band I play drums for) at our services and our minister asked me why she couldn't find the song on youtube. So I used the recording from that Sunday's service and quickly put together this little video.
I hope you like it.
