Coast Highway Christmas celebrates the beauty of our region, and our “California sound” of jangly, chiming 12 string Rickenbacker guitars reminiscent of late 60’s legendary band, The Byrds. We added a sort of “Cali Roots Rock” feel with pedal steel guitar ace, Greg Leisz on this one – an instrument that was huge out here in L.A. during the Western Swing era of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, before Elvis and Rock ‘n Roll took center stage. I think you’ll enjoy these arrangements on some of the great holiday classics, a few covers and several originals.
