The Christmas spirit that coalesced effortlessly between the two of them made the fact clear: this needed to be recorded for the ages. Thus, by a twist of fate and an act of God (i.e., a snow storm), the Fa-la-lattes were born. They produced their first album (“Welcome to Christmas”) in less than a week. And, in one more week, all the copies were sold. The Fa-la-lattes have been prolific. Producing a Christmas album annually since 2004, when they were formed. Their latest efforts have been made available for free download on their web-site (falalattes.com). Individual Bios (from the web-site) Daniel Michael: Daniel has trained in the art of Christmas music his whole life.
He has been jingling bells since he was in the crib. Daniel is the both the back-bone and the spleen of the Fa-la-lattes. He supplies the Fa-la-lattes with subtle guitar, haunting bass, trickling mandolin, laughing ukulele, bouncing accordion, sliding dobro, picnicking banjo, enigmatic harmonica, ghastly drums, blistering trombone, and vocals. In that order. Marcus R: Winston Churchill once said of Marcus, “Never hold discussions with the monkey when the organ grinder is in the room.” He was right.
Marcus is the spirit of Christmas past, Christmas present, Christmas future, and Christmas hypothetical time. Marcus is a delight. He is the shins and shoulders of the group. Marcus supplies the Fa-la-lattes with heat-seeking vocals, candid verbalization, inspired utterance, orange articulations, juicy harmonies, and Christmas choruses.
