A Pony for Christmas is available from Ghostlight Records. Produced by Almond and Peter Sachon, A Pony for Christmas combines Almond's folk, rock, pop, and theatre influences for 13 holiday-themed tracks, including covers of "I'll Be Home for Christmas" and "O Holy Night." The album also features five original songs written by Almond, including tunes from his musicals Iowa and The Odyssey.
To celebrate the album release, Almond will appear in concert at Chelsea Table + Stage December 13 at 7 PM, joined by special guest, Tony winner Betty Buckley.
Almond, currently appearing on screen in Gossip Girl and on stage in Broadway's Girl From the North Country, recently toured the country co-starring with Courtney Love in his original musical Kansas City Choir Boy.
