Marc Martel Music

If there is anyone that has the vocal range for an amazing Christmas album it is Marc Martel. As one-half of the amazing “How Many Kings,” Martel has always been a favorite of mine when it comes to Christmas music.

The tender roll of lyrics and subtle tone of the soundtrack of “Ava Maria” are amazing. His duet with Plumb on “It’s Beginning to Look Like Christmas” is full of holiday cheer and sure to warm your heart. There is a very respectable remake of “Mary Did You Know” with Buddy Green and the CD ends with a rousing “The Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah.

I believe the project was funding through a kick starter or something similar and so unfortunately, it is only six tracks long. I could think of a whole lot more I would like to hear in his range and with his passion.
