Local Grammy Contender from Valparaiso Indiana, Keenan Baxter, started creating Christmas song original versions when he was asked to perform at the Historic Candlelight tour in Laporte Indiana. “I was bored with traditional sounding music, so I started improvising live during the Candlelight tour. Nobody knew I was improvising, but it was the beginning of my Christmas cd compilations,” stated Keenan. After several years of performing, the cd was finally ready.
