Jeff Stice has just released his brand new Christmas album "Christmas By Request." This is a Christmas album with a difference. In a brilliant move, Jeff decided to let his many fans have a part in deciding what he recorded, besides, it could be fun. So, the name of the album is "Christmas By Request."
Stice commented, "I started to wonder if my idea was so brilliant after all. I had a hard time choosing from my favorites, but now I had to whittle done 1,500 songs to just twelve. It was all fun. Some of the songs I knew would be on the list, but others were fresh new ideas that I think make this album special."
Jeff Stice was the pianist for Triumphant Quartet. He began with the Monitors Quartet in the early 1980's. Jeff then went on to the Blackwood Brothers in the mid 1980s, then worked for a while with the Nelons and then played piano for Perfect Heart from 1990-1998. In 1999 he joined the Kingdom Heirs. Three years later he left to become one of the founding members of Triumphant Quartet, where he remained until May, 2014.
The project was produced by Jeff Stice and Shannon Newman at Under The Fan Studios. The "Whistler" on "White Christmas" is Kirk Talley and the "Singer" on "What Are You Doin' New Years Eve" is Kathy Karnes.
