The Minus 5
Dear December

The Minus 5 - Dear December

In early 2017, Scott McCaughey was asked to write some Holiday songs for another artist’s Holiday album. He became so inspired by the task that he wrote more than an album’s worth of material and decided to record that album with his group, the Minus 5, a rotating line-up of musician friends that McCaughey recruits to join him from time-to-time. The resulting album, Dear December, brings Holiday cheer and a fresh batch of songs featuring collaborations with Ben Gibbard, Peter Buck, Mike Mills, the Posies, Colin Meloy, Chuck Prophet, M. Ward, Tammy Ealom, Kurt Bloch, Kelly Hogan and Norah O’Connor.
