1. What inspired you to record a holiday song?
I Love Christmas music. “Christmas On The Moon” though was inspired by the fact that peace seems to be something that only exists on a dead moon. “Will we ever have Christmas on the moon?” The moon is a metaphor for peace.
2. What is your fondest holiday memory as a kid?
Frolicking in my Captain Kirk underoos and brand new Superman watch Christmas day.
3. Do you still get excited about seeing gifts under the tree? What was your most favorite surprise?

My father’s pancakes.
5. What is your favorite Christmas/holiday song (that isn’t yours)?

Flaming English Christmas pudding. I don’t know the recipe unfortunately.
7. What are your fondest musical memories associated with the holiday season?
Playing my parents’ “Nutcracker” and St. Martin In The Fields vinyls.
