October 2016, GRACO Music releases a classical crossover album by a remarkable new artist: Geoffrey Andrews - CHRISTMAS with the London Symphony Orchestra. Producers Kent Hooper and Phillip Keveren with Geoffrey, traveled to London in July 2016 to record at Abbey Road Studios with the London Symphony Orchestra. The unmatched acoustics of the world famous Studio 1 caused Geoffrey to state: “It was simply amazing. I would have never guessed how great the sound could be if I hadn’t had the opportunity to be there in person.”
The project was conceived in early 2016 when the team sat down to discuss the creation of a definitive classical crossover Christmas album. To gather inspiration for which songs should be considered, the meeting took place at a snow-covered ranch in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. “Seeing the snow on the ground and falling from the sky really put us in a Christmas mood,” Geoffrey said. “It was nice to be away from a busy city and to be inspired in that atmosphere.”
The album includes Geoffrey’s co-written original, “Candle in the Window,” as well as a duet version of “Who Would Imagine A King?” featuring new artist Libby Smallbone.
Geoffrey’s versions of “White Christmas” and “Christmas, Baby Please Come Home,” were played on multiple radio networks and Sirius XM Radio for the past 3 seasons. For the radio release in 2016, Producers mashed the classic, “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” with Tchaikovsky’s “Waltz of the Flowers” to create a unique new song.
So, who is Geoffrey Andrews?
Geoffrey was born in Lubbock, Texas, home of Buddy Holly. He started singing at 5 years old for himself and family. At 21, having realized his talent, he began training with private coaches. Even though his roots were home to country and folk legends, his aspirations were toward great classical artists like Andrea Bocelli. “I have always been a fan of music in or near the classical theme. When I discovered my abilities, I wanted to find out if I could make it in that realm.”
Believing he has been blessed in his life, Geoffrey hopes to influence others with his music. “My hope is that when people hear me sing, it will give them inspiration. And if someone is blessed by what they hear, it will be that much more rewarding for me.”
