A fresh, acoustic take on Christmas, recorded over two days in the fall of 2012, this holiday EP marks the debut of Me You & Her, a trio of high school girls, Hannah Rand, Alaina Stacey and Olivia Harris. With lush vocal harmonies and surprising arrangements of holiday classics, along with one new original Christmas song written by Hannah Rand, this album is a treat to listen to, unique and memorable, with a musical sophistication that is unexpected from those so young.
When the girls learned that 1 in 5 children in Chicago don't know where their next meal is coming from, they created a bonus track of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" which was originally only available when you donated to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. It's now included in this NOISETRADE offering.
Last year, and again this holiday, 100% of your tips for the album on NOISETRADE will go to support the work of this organization.
