In 2008, ex-Billions/current solo artist Sam Billen recorded, released and gave away for free an album of traditional Christmas songs. This year, Billen has teamed up with Josh Atkinson to release another Christmas album, and they’re raising funds through Kickstarter to press the CDs.
“It’s not your standard ‘raising money to make CDs to sell’ type project,” says Billen. “We’re actually raising money so we can make these CDs to hand out to people for free. It’s a Christmas present!”
