Connection is what life is about, and being with those I love is the most important part.
That’s why I wrote “Calling You Home (for the Holidays)” during Christmas 2020, feeling very far from family and friends that would normally gather around my kitchen table for feasts and laughter.
This song is a reminder to reach out to those dear to you. When we can’t be with those we love in person, we can connect on the phone, in letters or in spirit.
I’ve always wanted to make a record to celebrate the holiday season and I hope to make a series of these small, bite-sized collections. On November 26th, I will be sharing my four song EP HOLIDAY with you in its entirety. A collection of three Christmas classics along with this original song I am sharing with you today.
I grew up in studios and have made eight records, but this marks the first time that I’ve played the role of engineer, producer, and side musician, performing most instruments on the EP. It was such a joy to make this record; I hope that HOLIDAY can accompany you during the coming festive season.
To celebrate the songs and the season I am doing a series of four shows with three fabulous friends. I’ll be collaborating with Tanya Davis, Terra Spencer and Nick Gauthier in PEI and Nova Scotia. It will be so fun to gather with these friends and incredible musicians and to singalong to classic and new Christmas songs. If you’re nearby I hope you can join us. All the details can be found here.
