From the recording Songshop 2020

1302 was commissioned to be written for a family Christmas celebration over Zoom.

The couple was really fun to work with and had the idea of creating their own family version of The 12 Days of Christmas. Doing the "12 days of Christmas" was the perfect vehicle to write about such a large and unique family and it was really fun to put together.

For musical references they mentioned the John Denver version and Frank Sinatra so for the arrangement I left it mostly acoustic and outsourced the vocal to my super-talented friend, Luke who has a beautiful classical voice.
