Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina with a style reminiscent of Alison Krauss and Sarah McLachlan let me present to you the ethereal stylings of Abigail Winzer. “Rejoice” is a masterful collection of some of the greatest Christmas songs of the past and Abigail has presented them as true classic royalty.
Each note is pristine and flawless. Rich in classic country with a fresh and reborn joy of the most authentic Christmas songs ever written. This album was produced at Mackinaw Harvest Music Studio in Grand Rapids, Michigan and produced by award winning Berkley College of Music graduate Michael Crittenden.
Her vocals are bright and crisp, clean and unblemished. She is a Soprano of the highest caliber. With the assistance of renowned producer Michael Crittenden, who’s composition of the peaceful and celestial vocals has surpassed many, Winzer has recreated a winter wonderland for the memory of each listener. This will definitely take them back to their childhoods of stringing popcorn for the tree and lighting the yule log.
It all began as a young child when she began to sing in the church choir and by the time she was 15 Abigail started voice lessons at the Boston Conservatory with Sara Jackson. Upon being selected to attend the Fine Arts Summer Academy in Nashville TN she then greatly impressed the faculty and proceeded to blow away the crowd the Ford Theater in the Country Music Hall of Fame with her rendition of “The House That Built Me” by Miranda Lambert.
Within days she found herself opening for country artist Josh Turner and with it embraced the path to producing her debut album “Rejoice.” Winzer’s accolades include performances with the Annie Moses Band at the Grand Ole Opry, Solo performance at the Ford Theater in the Country Music Hall of Fame, and he performance with Josh Turner. Her style is comparative to Celtic, Folk, and Holiday with a bit of Country Classic Christmas in the mix.
