Paul Parnell captures joy and inspiration behind the holiday experience with Pretend It’s Christmas
INDIANAPOLIS, IND. – (Dec. 19, 2011) Paul Parnell’s recently released Pretend It’s Christmas, his first album of original Christmas music, is receiving high sales numbers in Japan. Parnell has written a collection of songs drawing from the inspiring memories we attribute to the holidays.
The songwriting began in 2010 when Parnell asked friends and family to share with him their cherished memories about Christmas. After gathering stories from these conversations, Parnell expanded on these perspectives and began working on lyrics and music to conjure up the many emotions that accompany the Christmas season.
The idea of Pretend It’s Christmas is to capture that feeling, any time – of special memories and traditions of a holiday that can transform one’s mood.
Parnell, who comes from a Christian family, has an extensive background working with church choirs as a music director. He also has professional work experience in various other musical programs, from local choir groups, the Indianapolis Men’s Choir, to an off-Broadway show in Las Vegas with singer and actress Debbie Reynolds and a stint doing piano accompaniment for television evangelist Tammy Faye Baker.
Parnell’s love of various music styles and ballad songwriting is prevalent in this compilation of 11 Christmas songs, following Parnell’s belief that, “music should tell a story, leading you to an undiscovered or remembered emotion.”
Parnell, originally from Lafayette, Ind., has lived in Indianapolis for the past 28 years. His interest in songwriting, singing and playing piano has opened doors for him in creating original music scores and offering an enhanced website experience beyond just a visual and written content of a web page.
Review CDs available upon request for promotional use only.
Pretend It’s Christmas is available for purchase on iTunes or Amazon.com.
