Peter Furler Christmas Featuring David Ian
Peter Furler, David Ian
Composed by: Peter Furler, David Ian
THE ARTIST. Grammy Nominated Australian Singer-Songwriter, PETER FURLER delivers his debut Christmas record. He has over 7 million album sales to his credit alongside extensive worldwide touring throughout the course of his career. With an international perspective in mind, he collaborates with 2013 Wall Street Journal favorited, Canadian-born David Ian whose unique affinity for the Vintage Christmas sound reaches a new level. Using singers and musicians from around the world including America, Armenia, Lebanon, Russia, and South Africa, the artists bring you an unparalleled cultured Christmas experience ringing sounds of the holiday season from ancient past to present.THE ALBUM. From the traditional orchestration of ''O Come All Ye Faithful'' to the deconstructed ''O Come O Come Emmanuel'', the arrangements reflect a solemn respect for these timeless Christmas classics. For example, Furler’s introspective vocal delivery on ''We Three Kings'' coupled with haunting melodies of the Duduk (Indigenous Armenian wind instrument), reinvigorates the often dismissed Christmas carol. The signature vintage sound of David Ian stays true and develops as he draws from his own cultural background. This album equally suits a meditative evening by the fire, or a dinner party with family and friends.
