Notes and Editorial Reviews

A Family Christmas features The Piano Guys unique twist on Christmas classics such as “Let it Snow,” “Winter Wonderland” and “Silent Night” as well as two original compositions from Jon Schmidt and Steven Sharp Nelson. And, for the first time since their breakthrough video of “What Makes You Beautiful,” all four of The Piano Guys perform together for a remarkable version of “Angels We Have Heard on High,” which will be supported by a new YouTube video. Says Schmidt, “We spent a lot of time crafting the album so that there’s something for everybody. It’s an opportunity to jam and dance around the house while decorating the tree as well as the chance to sit back with somebody you love and look at the fireplace.”
