Christmas is getting closer, and we’re excited to keep sharing more of our brand new holiday music with you guys!

He captured all the behind-the-scenes action at The Tempermill and produced two really cool music videos.

Here’s the first one, featuring Drew Seeley singing “Stowin’ Away (In Santa’s Sleigh).” Please share and enjoy!

“He Never Lost The Fight” opens new play starring Tony Todd

Hello Friends!!

We hope 2015 is treating you well, and thanks for checking in with us! We’ve had some cool things going on around here as of late, and we thought it was about time to send out some updates.

We love collaborating.  And we love telling stories.

In April we were excited to collaborate with L.A.’s Working Stage Theatre, T-Dog llc, and Kutztown Unitversity  as they brought GHOST IN THE HOUSE, a brand new play, to Pennsylvania. Directed by Frank Megna and starring Tony Todd, the play chronicles the life and times of Jack Johnson, America’s first African-American heavyweight champion. Our story song “He Never Lost The Fight” opened the performance at Shaeffer Auditoruim on April 9th and featured Kutztown University music students. Big thanks to Kevin Kjos, head of the KU Jazz Department!

Check out the live performance of Daniel Noel and the band performing “He Never Lost The Fight” here:
