You found our 2016 Christmas release! Our drummer's Dad wrote this song 30 years ago, about the donkey carrying Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem. It survived on a lone cassette tape and when we heard it we immediately decided to cover it.
And so it came to pass, one snowy night in Brooklyn we gathered in our underground studio, hit the record button and hoped for the best. We think we got something pretty special and are really excited to share it!
Some major thanks are due for delivering this in an unbelievable turnaround time. Like Danny who answered the call and made it through the weather with his double bass. Jon for mixing straight through the night(s) non-stop. Cara Kerwin for some awesome artwork, Brian Kerwin for writing the song and Mairead Kerwin who had the foresight to capture it on that cassette tape!
And finally thanks to the donkey, for never giving up. Whatever you celebrate this season, sometimes we could all use a little help from a donkey. Thanks donkey!
