"I have always wanted to record a Christmas album and started writing Christmas Child back in '96. To have it finally come to life has been like Christmas morning for me. Away in a Manger was the first and only song I knew I would put on the EP because it was the first song I remember learning for our Christmas morning church service. I remember being in the dining room with my mom teaching me the melody and lyrics. When I was a child, Christmas just wasn't Christmas without that song, so I wanted to put my own spin on it. With O Holy Night, my grandmother had me sing it every Christmas so I decided to include her favorite as well.” says Teri Tobin.
CHRISTMAS CHILD–EP will be available worldwide for digital download on December 13, 2011 at CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, etc. For a sneak peek of Christmas Child & Away in a Manger visit Teri Tobin’s Bandcamp site at http://teritobin.bandcamp.com/track/christmas-child.
About Teri Tobin
Born on Valentine’s Day, this Arizona-born songstress, songwriter & producer had sounds of soul music flowing through her veins at an early age. While voice training in those days started at her grandmother’s church, her professional singing career began as a child when she was chosen to sing background vocals for the legendary Jeffrey Osborne and for the Rock Band Yes. Although most of her influences are male singers like Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, Prince, and Donny Hathaway, Tobin is reminiscent of the sultry sounds and richness of R&B or Jazz singers of yesterday.
