The ninth annual album, which released in 2019, was included in Rolling Stones “89 New Christmas Albums of 2019, Reviewed”. “Unfortunately, due to the impact of COVID-19, 2020’s Blackwatch Christmas album, that was set to record in late spring, was cancelled,” said producer and co-owner of Blackwatch Studios, Jarod Evans. “That being said, we plan to re-ignite the project next season,” Fortunately, Blackwatch has your Christmas playlist covered, with Fowler VW Presents: A Blackwatch Christmas, featuring all nine Christmas albums.
When asked about gear he’s currently using in the studio, Evans replied, “The Keeley Electronic Bubble Tron pedal is made right here in OKC. It’s a fantastic tool for adding a third dimension to any sound.”
