Byrne Music releases new music video and single ‘Christmas Children’


The purveyor of uplifting music known as Byrne Elliott has released his latest music video and single, titled, “Christmas Children.” It has been released on his popular Byrne Music record label. The video is an animated seasonal feature with a folk-style narrative and a message of love for the people of the world: that there is hope for everyone no matter how grim circumstances might seem, so long as there are people like the Christmas Children to bring friendship and compassion to every corner of Earth.

Byrne Elliott is a composer, storyteller, executive producer and entrepreneur in the Pacific Northwest. He works with highly talented singers, musicians, recording producers, recording engineers and animation companies to bring forth music that fills the hearts and minds of listeners all over the world. He cites as main artistic influences the Beatles and Ludwig van Beethoven. His musical career began as an avid music listener, and moved into songwriting after he spent time studying the theory behind musical composition.

The themes of Byrne Music’s “Christmas Children” are simple, beautiful and ever so necessary at this tense point in global history, when many of the cultures of the world are battered, homeless, and desperate. Elliott writes himself of the Christmas Children story:

“Christmas Children were taken from this world because of heartbreaking events. From heaven, they see their families struggling to deal with their loss. They also see other folks saddened by poverty, broken homes, crime and war. The Christmas Children believe a parade will uplift the spirits of the children and adults around the world by making them aware that hope and beauty are still present just outside their front doors.

“Christmas Children reach out to the world’s children because they still have the purity, joy, optimism and unconditional love needed to change the world. By getting them to join the parade, they are able to bring the message of Christmas to downtrodden people. Once in the parade, the Christmas spirit touches everyone. The path of the parade gives the people an insight into the wonderful journey that awaits them in life and in heaven.

“Neighborhood after neighborhood is touched with the spirit of Christmas as the parade marches all over the globe. The Christmas Children sing the words “forever, forever, forever Christmas Day” as the church and sleigh bells chime in perfect harmony. Joy and happiness are now brought back to the lives of the people.”

Byrne Music thanks “the impassioned Pacific Northwest singers, musicians and recording professionals for their contribution to ‘Christmas Children,’” and offers “Special thanks to Thomas Pell for his high-quality studio work and Matthew Kacergis for his powerful lead vocals.”

Byrne Music adds also that “ honors the children of the world and in heaven. Their presence continues to inspire and soften the rough edges of life by bringing in the spirit of Christmas every single day. ‘Forever Christmas Day!’”

“Christmas Children” by Byrne Music is available online worldwide for viewing, listening, and download beginning 1 November 2013.
