Tony nominee and Emmy winner Liz Callaway releases a new holiday album, Comfort and Joy – An Acoustic Christmas, from Working Girl Records.
Recorded during lockdown, the album was made in collaboration with Callaway's neighbor, guitarist and producer Peter Calo. The 10 tracks range from traditional Christmas carols to newer tunes, including songs written by Sara Bareilles and Ann Hampton Callaway (Liz's sister and frequent cabaret partner). Grammy nominee Jann Klose provides guest vocals for one track, duetting with Callaway on "Walking in the Air."
Comfort and Joy follows Callaway's August release of her take on David Shire's "The Morning After," recorded in the wake of nationwide Black Lives Matter protests and rallies.
