Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising are ending the year just as they started it… with a new album.
In January they released their Lowground CD, and today sees the debut of Spending Every Christmas With You, their first holiday-themed project. The band has been performing Christmas shows in the latter part of the year for some time, with demand growing annually from their fans in the Northwestern states and Canada.
In a twist for bluegrass Christmas records, all ten tracks here are originals, many having been regulars in their December shows over the years. All of the tracks can be previewed at Airplay Direct, and here’s a video the band created as a tease.
Phoenix Rising is Kathy Boyd on bass, Tim Crosby on mandolin, fiddle, and guitar, Tom Tower on banjo and reso-guitar, and Dennis Nelson on guitar. They are based in Taulatin, OR.
Spending Every Christmas With You is available on disc from CD Baby, with downloads offered at popular online resellers.
