This is Karl's biggest endeavor to date: an all original CD with award winning songs, performed by an amazing all-star cast from around the country including Tim Reynolds, Eddie Williams, Dan Martier, John Toomey, Elaine Dempsey and many more. Release date: May 8th, 2015.


Karl Werne's single release, "It's Christmas" is a thoughtful exploration of the Holiday season, balancing between the joyous feeling of celebration in the air and the cynical view of greed and commercialism that can often go with it.
Karl calls on his madrigal choir experience to create an instant classic Christmas song ... that quickly takes a left turn to illustrate the disharmony of a world at odds and its warped treatment of such a revered holiday.
This reflection helps to refocus and strengthen the writer's intention, and by the end, the song becomes a beautiful and uplifting anthem which glorifies peace and kindness.     Watch the video
