"Greater Than Christmas" Lyrics:
- More gentle than snow on my cheek
- Or a kiss beneath mistletoe's leaf
Your love surrounds, it never runs out
- Stronger than well-wishing peace
- In the music that carolers sing
Your hope allows that peace to come now
- Jesus, You're greater than Christmas
- No light shines like the Light of the world
- We sing of the gift of our Savior
Nothing compares to the joy we find in You
- More brilliant than white winter scenes
- Sprinkled with red and with green
I'm covered by grace since You took my place
- So much richer than gifts dressed in gold
- Or laughter from stories that never grow old
My heart will hold and treasure my Lord
- Just like the angels, all of creation
- And every wise man kneels before You
- In every season and after this lifetime
We'll sing Your name and hallelujah
- Lord & Lady combines the vocal and songwriting talents of Scott Oatley and Rachel Panchal. Both have sung for well-known TV/Film projects, including Glee, The Simpsons, La La Land, SING, and more. The duo has received high praise for their YouTube hit, "La La Land Medley," which went viral, garnering 5 million views, and was featured at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics during Kristina Astakhova and Alexey Rogonov’s pairs free skate performance.
- Scott and Rachel met in a classic L.A. songwriter sort of way, through Judy Stakee, a famed music publisher who signed and developed artists like Katy Perry and Sheryl Crow. Rachel was interning for Stakee when she had just left Warner/Chappell to launch her own artist development company, and Scott was enrolled in her workshops. Drawing on her years of experience pairing top-notch talent together, she thought they would make a winning songwriting team.
- With the release of their debut EP, Lord & Lady received many accolades for their original songs, including the International Acoustic Music Award for Best Group/Duo. Their most recent EP, No Ghost, is a collaboration with veteran producer, Steve Shebby (Neon Trees, We The Kings, Hugh Jackman, Iron Man 3). The project was successfully fan-funded on Kickstarter, and contains cool, edgy tracks that are more in the alt-pop vein than their straightforward singer-songwriter leaning debut.
