ANNOUNCING STEVEN SHARP NELSON'S NEWEST ALBUM
"Billboard chart veteran, YouTube star, and award-winning cellist Steven Sharp Nelson combines his unique percussion-cello sound and melodic, emotional arrangements into this, his third album. Lush 16-cello arrangements of beloved Christmas tunes such as Silent Night beautifully balance syncopated, percussive arrangements of Carol of the Bells and We Three Kings. Fresh settings of unconventional Christmas tunes such as Simple Gifts and Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring round-out the appealing variety of Christmas Cello. Steven Sharp Nelson is again joined by his friends Jon Schmidt, Paul Cardall, Marshall McDonald and others in a collaborative mix of talent. This album embodies the Christmas season—the excitement of gift-giving and the warmth of lasting memories."

LOVE STORY REMIX
While LOVE STORY MEETS VIVA LA VIDA continues to reach new audiecnes worldwide, now at nearly 3,000,000 hits, Coldplay still has yet to give permission to do anything with the tune beyond Youtube and concert performance. Jon Schmidt promised his audience a new album at the the Thankgsgiving Point concert so Jon and Steve went back into the studio (late at night) and shot an entirely new video of the "REMIX"--Love Story Meets Love Story. In it, the Viva La Vida section is replaced by a new ending that climaxes using the Love Story themes and motives.

Utah pianist, cellist working together to make beautiful music by Carma Wadley, The Deseret Morning News
"When they first met, Marshall McDonald and Steven Sharp Nelson felt like they fell into the middle of a friendship.
They were both music majors at the University of Utah, and although they didn't have any classes together, they were involved in extracurricular musical activities.
"We had an immediate personal bond as well as a musical bond," says Nelson. "Music adds such sweetness to friendship. When we perform together, it's like we are both on a higher ground." McDonald plays the piano and Nelson the cello, so they can easily make beautiful music together."
