Antje Kohler presents her new solo album of beautiful Christmas songs with all new interpretations. In Kohler’s first solo album, Because it’s Christmas, she and her band give new life to seldom heard Christmas songs and craft new renditions of well known seasonal favorites. Known for her performances with the Zuckerwatte Combo, The Alpine Carolers, and as background singer to Andy Lee Lang, Kohler steps to center stage with this solo release.

 
On this Christmas album, Kohler carefully reimagines songs from Dolly Parton, Irving Berlin, Whitney Houston and other great artists. She is supported by her 3-piece band and is joined for a few songs by guest singer, Megan Crain, and guest saxophone soloist, Horst Hausleitner. Kohler leaves behind the traditional style of Christmas music and combines her own favorite genres. The result is a combination of exciting, soulful, thought provoking, and very personal songs in the styles of pop, musical theatre, and jazz.
 
Each track on the CD is close to Kohler’s heart and reveals something of herself. These tracks reflect her outlook on life and are in many ways an homage to those she loves. “I am absolutely a Christmas person. To me, this time of year means slowing down and reflecting on the important things in life. With this CD I want to capture and pass on the greater meaning of the holiday,” says Kohler about the motive behind the Christmas theme of her first solo album.
