Last, Maker Studios delivered one of my favorite videos of the holiday season, a network-wide rendition of ‘Deck the Halls’ conducted by Mike Tompkins. This year, the top MCN has managed to outdo itself with an entire album of Christmas favorites titled A Very Maker Music Christmas.
Maker Music is rolling out individual music videos one song at a time as a ’12 Days Of Christmas’ program. Each video features a different creator, with BaracksDubs kicking things off. Out of the videos that have been released thus far, I’m partial to The Gregory Brothers‘ soothing cover of ‘Away In A Manger‘, which shows a side of the musical quartet that doesn’t involve silly covers of auto-tuned news clips. Andrew Gregory gets bonus points for his blingy guitar capo.
Since Christmas is a time for giving, Maker will also donate proceeds from the album sales to the Grammy Foundation. Consider picking up a copy before The Gregory Brothers finish lulling you into a deep, wintry sleep.
