2018 marks the first year since I was a kid, that I’ve come around to the spirit of the Holiday Season. It was always a time of year that was threaded heavy with complex emotions around money, family, and anything holiday-related. It didn’t feel good to spend a few months of the year leading up to Christmas feeling this way.
In recent year’s I’ve sensed the positive shift. Our families have found a combination of old and new traditions, the food tastes better than ever, we laugh a lot, and we play A LOT of games. This year I released my first holiday song called This Christmas. Here is my 2018 Holiday Playlist with my favorites from the past, and new releases from some very special friends.
This Christmas released on November 9, 2019 and is has since had over 400K streams on Spotify.
I made a decision last winter while I was on tour in Europe, to take this winter to not tour as much, and instead to reflect and write new music. Had I not listened to myself last winter, had I slogged it out and just continued touring aimlessly without questioning my intentions, I would not have allowed space for what’s happening right now, healing and growth.
Wishing you and yours happy holidays. Enjoy this home-made lyric video I made for the Christmas single.
