Way back in 2005, Chris and I came up with an idea for an album project. We wanted to highlight some of Vancouver's amazing local musical talent, as well as raise funds for charity and bonus - make some really cool indie, holiday music; and that's how the Very Vancouver Christmas album project got it's start!
Since that time we have released 5 albums of original holiday music from over 50 artists, we have raised thousands of dollars for the BC-SPCA and the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, our artists have performed at loads of holiday events and shows and we have made so many new friends!
Our artists are mostly local to Vancouver, British Columbia or Canada, but we have had a few special out of town guests, as one often does at the holidays!
