For the January 2011 Cookie Contest, I’ve baked up some milk chocolate dipped violin-shaped cookies :) The first person to answer all three questions correctly will be sent four of these utterly scrumptious treats!

Note: Apologies, but to ensure freshness, the cookies can only be sent to addresses in the US.

Note: Past winners are only eligible once every three months.

Ingredients: Love, Flour, Sugar, Butter, Eggs, Chocolate, Vanilla, Baking Soda, Salt

Question 1: Which one of my songs does not have any piano in it?

Question 2: What color is Irina Chirkova’s cello case?

Question 3: When is “Now or Never”?

Hint: Look to the video for “The Prayer” for a clue :)

Note: The comments are moderated, so only users with accounts will see them appear immediately. Not to worry, we will credit your answers by the time stamp not by the order of appearance :)

I will be releasing a new single every month in the lead up to the official release of the album. For January, I have a new release called “Masquerade” – a daring composition with all the vibrance and elegance of a classic waltz and all the quirk and candor of an indie anthem. This one has Jervy Hou on piano, Hiro Goto on violin, Irina Chirkova on cello, Dave Stone on bass, and John Ferraro on drums.

Every year, my sister and I each add another ornament to the tree. This year I chose the one in the foreground.
