Crooner Takes Huge Risk With Traditional Christmas Carols
Professional voice over actor and crooner, Justin Young, will soon release his second album, Solo Noel, where he performs traditional Christmas Hymns...completely a cappella, or no music at all.
Ten dollars from each sale of the album from SoloNoel.com will go to the Capital Fund for the Hurrah Players, Inc, which will be used to purchase the historic Chamber of Commerce building in Norfolk, VA, which will serve as a home for the 25 year old non-profit company.
“For a vocalist,” Justin says, “singing without music is like standing naked on a street corner. You put yourself out there, vulnerable and just hope all the work you've put in over the years pays off and people like what they see – or in this case, 'hear.'
“I'm taking a big risk; doing something that has never been done before,” Justin continues. “This was not an easy project. Not only am I trying to get it released before Christmas, but I never realized how difficult Christmas Carols are to sing without the music guiding me along. But it's for a good cause and I'm happy with how it turned out. It's like having me right there, singing to you in your own home… but not in a creepy way,” he jokes.
Justin's experience in television and radio, along with his sense of humor, will provide you with a great interview for print or broadcast, giving your audience information that will keep their interest while making them feel good at the same time. Solo Noel will be available for immediate download December 24th at SoloNoel.com as well as the CD's themselves. The album will also be available on iTunes, AmazonMP3 and other sites within the next few months.
Bio and Q & A sheet available upon request.
