Guitar Player staffer Katie Garibaldi — she transcribes many of the artist interviews that you read — just released a wonderful holiday album, Home Sweet Christmas. As you'll see, Garibaldi is a gifted singer, a folky acoustic guitarist, and an emotive songwriter.
Today, we're premiering the video of her song, "Star In the East" — a joyous journey back into the past to those jolly claymation Christmas specials of the 1960s.
"'Star in the East' is a song I wrote about the biblical story of the three kings traveling by the light of the star guiding them to Bethlehem to the newborn Jesus," says Garibaldi. "The lyrics are written from the perspective of the three kings, and because of its storytelling style, I was envisioning a video that was a throwback to the old school claymation/stop motion children's Christmas movies. I couldn't get the idea out of my head, and I was so lucky and excited to find Mac Morgan by discovering some of his amazing work online. He happily took on the project, and I love the personality he put into the characters and all the special details. He blew my expectations away!"
