Maple Mars’ “Christmas Time in the City.” Over a sea of guitars that simultaneously ring, crunch and chime, Rick Hromadka plaintively spins a holiday tale of Christmas in California, set to an absolutely unforgettable melody with superb backing vocals. One of the finest songs I’ve heard this year in any genre, to be sure". - John Borack (Goldmine Magazine)

DUE MID-NOVEMBER!!! ACCEPTING PRE-ORDERS NOW!!!! When was the last time a great pop Holiday record was released? With contributions from both artists currently or soon to be on Kool Kat, this quite possibly could be just what the pop masses ordered! This 12-song Holiday Pop Fest features contributions from Maple Mars, The Jellybricks, The Smith Brothers, The Goldbergs, Parallax Project, William Duke, Keith LuBrant, Frank Royster, The Britannicas, The Strand, John Wicks, and The Sun Kings! $5 FROM EVERY CD SOLD WILL BE DONATED TO THE SUSAN GIBLIN FOUNDATION: The late wife of Mike Giblin of Parallax Project, Susan Kroah Giblin held degrees both as a Paralegal and as a Certified Veterinary Technician, a degree that she obtained after going back to school at the age of 35. As one of Central PA's greatest friends to cast-off and wayward animals, she was a 17 year volunteer at the Helen O. Krause Animal Foundation, and served as its medical coordinator for nearly a decade. She also maintained a fostering room in her home which was rarely empty, and was well-known for her compassion, empathy, and personal connection with both patients and their owners. The Susan Giblin Foundation for Animal Wellness and Welfare was formed to honor the memory and continue the work of Susan Giblin, a Certified Veterinary Technician and noted animal advocate, who passed away from leukemia at the age of 46. The Foundation's mission is to raise and dispense funds to support animal caregiving organizations, to foster awareness and education of complementary therapies, and to support the continued education of those in the animal medical field. We sincerely hope this this goes well, we're already planning "Volume 2"! GREAT MUSIC FOR A GREAT CAUSE!!!!!
