Renowned Nashville based a cappella group Street Corner Symphony has announced the group’s A Street Corner Christmas album with a nationwide holiday tour to follow.

A Street Corner Christmas is a 9-track album featuring the group’s dynamic choral production of holiday favorites, such as “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree”, “White Christmas”, “Happy Christmas (War Is Over)” and more. View full track listing below. The group, featuring brothers Jeremy and Jonathan Lister says of the new album, “Music truly brings this season to life. We are so proud to share these songs with the world. The holidays mean so many different things to so many different people. We hope that there is a little something for everyone on this album whether it be joy, nostalgia, celebration, humor, community or even hope itself. Happy Holidays and may it be full of love.”

Street Corner Symphony is an internationally acclaimed a cappella group founded in 2010. After receiving runner-up on the second season of NBC’s “The Sing-Off”, the 5 piece embarked on a global tour around the world with spotlight performances in Italy, Nashville’s TED Talks and appearances at schools to provide clinics benefiting cancer. The group has aligned themselves with Grammy Award-Winning artist Alison Krauss and Ben Folds.

With a repertoire of music ranging from country, barbershop, rock and pop, the group seamlessly blends styles of music to create a unique blend of music that can appeal to any audience.

Gabe Dixon released his sophomore solo album, Turns To Gold, on April 8th, 2016. Produced by Paul Moak (Mat Kearney, Third Day), engineered by Devin Vaughan (Marc Broussard), and mastered by Brad Blackwood at Euphonics Mastering (Allison Krauss & Union Station, Luther Dickinson), the LP marks Gabe’s first official collection as an independent artist. Following the release of 2011’s One Spark, the Nashville-based troubadour changed almost everything. He was focused on starting from scratch, and parted ways with his longtime management and record label, Concord Music Group. The one thing that didn’t change was that honest, heartfelt approach to songwriting that countless fans fell in love with when he first emerged in 1999.
 
Turns To Gold addresses some weighty subjects—mortality, what’s important in life, and the value of love. “In many ways, my new music is about learning how to be in a committed relationship, leave immature ways behind, grow, evolve, and move on from habits that aren’t necessarily who you are anymore,” he says. The album was recorded at The Smoakstack recording studio in Berry Hill, TN with Jano Rix on drums (The Wood Brothers), Viktor Krauss on bass (Lyle Lovett), and Kris Donegan on guitar (Cam). “I wanted to go in with musicians and get performances that were inspiring and inspired, and take it from there. Producer Paul Moak was completely on the same page. We cut everything to analog tape with no click track. What results is an album that feels very natural. Since One Spark I learned to trust myself, and the sound of Turns To Gold is the most representative of who I am. It’s warm, laid-back, acoustic, and live.”
 
The opener and first single, “Holding Her Freedom,” out now, coasts between a shimmering piano melody, organ swell, guitar rumble, and heavenly vocal performance from Gabe. It also conveys a cinematic narrative. “It’s a story about a woman who has been burned by love, and she’s afraid to let herself be vulnerable and fall in love again,” he explains. “She’s figuratively holding her freedom like a cage. That same ‘freedom’ keeps her trapped and unable to love again.” The album’s second single, “The Way To Love Me,” features Natalie Prass and will be released on February 5th. “Natalie’s voice has the perfect delicate and vulnerable qualities that the song required,” says Gabe. “She recorded it while passing through Nashville to play the Ryman Auditorium, part of a long tour opening for Ryan Adams.”  
 
Throughout his career, many other notable artists have taken note of and supported Gabe’s immense talents. He’s opened for and toured with the likes of Loggins & Messina, Gavin DeGraw and Delta Rae, as well as held side gigs as the keyboardist and vocalist for Paul McCartney, Alison Krause & Union Station, O.A.R. and Supertramp. His songs have received placements on major television shows including Parks and Recreation, Grey’s Anatomy, and Vampire Diaries, and his song “Find My Way” served as the title for the box office hit The Proposal starring Sandra Bullock. Fans have seen him perform twice on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, as well as The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and on festival stages everywhere from Bonnaroo to High Sierra Music Festival. However, it’s with Turns To Gold that listeners will hear Gabe Dixon as he always meant.
