Holiday vibes my favorite Christmas song : favorite holiday album “Vince Guaraldi:: A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “Silent Night” reminds me of being a little girl looking at the color wheel. I’m more of a fan of low key holiday songs..instrumentals not much on over-singing..really more of a vibe of chill, fireplace, warm cocoa and like slipping your feet into warm fuzzy slippers.
This was at rehearsal with my fellas including Roland Hamilton on keys 🎹impromptu on break! I asked who knew any Christmas songs as we went to break getting ready for Art Basel in Miami – only Roland said yes and so we did this casually for fun. Sometimes this season can be so hectic and full of frenzy and often sadness for many as well..I hope this brings a minute and a half of joy.

Wishing everyone the comfort, warmth, joy and blessings of the holiday season and time of year when many are stressed, lonely and depressed – as much as many of us are filled with happiness, enjoying family and the often magically beautiful spirit of the season. Give love.
“Like A Holiday” will be on my Soundcloud player until December 26, 2012.
With recent tragic events especially Sandy Hook Elementary School killings and with all of the little ones still being laid to rest, this song came into my head. I wrote some years ago after finishing ‘Midnight Lounge’, while tinkering around creatively and considering doing a chilled out electronic non-fussy holiday album with classics and one or two holiday themed songs. The first line ‘It seems the world’s gone crazy, I don’t want to watch the evening news..where did life’s innocence go? I’m thinking…”
..and I’m still thinking..
The families remain in my thoughts and prayers, and to all who remember a more innocent time and long for the loving spirit of this season – every day.
