New Christmas Song At Last
Hem has a new holiday song, and you can download it for free right now! Click on the image to the left for a little postcard greeting and a link to "Peace At Last." I may be a little late in spreading the link, but there's never a bad time for a little holiday cheer Hem-style, right? Also, you can find the (Hem original) words for Peace At Last on the lyrics page.

It's tentative at this point, but the tour page has a new April 2007 tour date. Get ready, Virginia! Hem will probably/maybe be at the Attucks Theatre in Norfolk on April 14, and tickets go on sale December 29 at 10am. Once the show is confirmed (or not), I'll post another notice here in the news.
