As Is an artist based in the USA. The musical union of guitarist, Alan Schulman, and vocal stylist, Stacey Schulman, is the heart of As Is. On and off stage, the couple has made a name for themselves for their imaginative re-expressions of 20th-century song classics.

“They find new ways to approach the songs, ways that preserve the origins yet make out of them very personal statements.” (Jazz Mostly) As Is approaches their performances with both the soulfulness and swing that’s accessible, memorable, and highly musical. They have toured extensively in the US, Europe, and Asia performing live and in the studio with contemporary jazz talents including Marcus Baylor, David Binney, Christie Dashiell, Corcoran Holt, Kokayi, and Gregoire Maret.


For decades, the Christmas Classic “O Holy Night” has been a staple of nearly every Holiday playlist. AS IS, the American Duo of Jazz Guitarist Alan Schulman & Vocalist Stacey Schulman, have reimagined this iconic Christmas favorite from its origin as a semi-sacred and traditional carol into a bouncing samba-Esque arrangement that’s bound to have you up on your feet and swaying to the beat.

The single was arranged by the duo AS IS and produced by former GRAMMY trustee and nominee James McKinney of Infinite Icon Productions. The single features subtle scatting from jazz song stylist Stacey Schulman and tasty guitar fills by jazz guitarist Alan Schulman. Latin accents are provided by the rhythm section of native Brazilian brothers – Bassist Leonardo Lucini and drummer/percussionist Alejandro Lucini.

The track was recorded at Blue House Studios in Silver Spring, Maryland, where it was engineered by Jeff Gruber and mixed by Grammy-winning sound engineer Scott Jacoby of Eusonia Studios in NYC. The single is the first release from the Billboard Charting Duo AS IS since their sophomore release “Here’s to Life” (Night Night the Elephant productions) in 2018.

We're sure you've heard a lot of holiday versions of O Holy Night - but this one is NOT classical, religious, or overly dramatized for a climactic finish... With an upbeat samba vibe, spirited guitar lines, and crisp, melodic vocals, we were looking to bring new energy to this beloved carol and get people moving to the spirit and joy of the season.

This is one of those carols that people love to hear but fear singing along with, and we wanted to make this accessible for every voice. This is a tight, happy track with Brazilian percussion, upright bass, lead guitar, and vocal. It was released to radio in the US late last holiday season and we are looking for help getting exposure with a broader global audience this year.
