Jason Ellsworth

Jason is also a 4 year contributor to the Electric Christmas projects. Jason is also a longtime player in many successful area bands. Jason always brings something creative to the table with his thinking outside the box versions of classic Christmas songs. Between sizzling riffs on guitar and holding the bottom down on bass, Jason does his version of the TSO song Wizards In Winter.


Wizards In Winter


Tara Faber

Tara’s first time on the Electric Christmas project but certainly not a newcomer to singing.  Tara has taken part in many CD projects in the area through the years and also spent some time in Europe working with EMI. She has sang numerous National Anthems for many events around the region. Tara nails it and brings it home with this soulful version of Merry Christmas Baby.

Merry Christmas Baby


Eldon Fisher

4 time Electric Christmas contributor bringing it every time with his mad virtuoso guitar skills. Well known in the region for the long list of successful bands he’s started or been part of slinging the axe. Enjoy this version of “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” in a whole new way this Christmas.



Mike Dresch

Mike has been a music contributor for 3 of the 4 Electric Christmas projects but has had his hand in all 4 of them as it pertains to mixing or mastering.  Mike has also been a long time musician in the area being part of several successful bands through the years. Mike also runs Cat House Studios, a recording studio here in Sioux Falls. Mikes typically plays a guitar influenced song but this year he does that and sings this Christmas ballad “Baby Please Come Home.”

Baby Please Come Home


Bret Ferguson

Founder and producer of the Electric Christmas projects, Bret has played in several bands throughout the area through the years as well as volunteering with his local church Worship team.  This year Bret brings a Rock/Pop/Blues feel to Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmas Time” and Amy Grant’s “Breath of Heaven.”

Wonderful Christmas Time


Breath of Heaven


Travis Jacobs

Travis uses his wordsmith mastery to tell a story with vivid word imagery to get you to think. Travis uses his poetic cadence to help others think about things in a new way. He uses this gift to speak and to encourage people in prison, to speak and encourage our military veterans suffering with PTSD and youth who need a hand up.  In this track he weaves a cool Christmas story that will have you listening to over and over again.

Mohawks and Mistletoe


Steve Gasiecki

Another first for Electric Christmas is Steve Gasiecki.  Steve brings his keyboard skills in for a Mannheim Steamroller type treat.  Steve has played with a few bands around the area and also volunteers at his church on their Worship team and for special events. Enjoy the layer of textures Steve brings on this original Christmas tune.

Adore Him
