Generally speaking I find Christmas to be a bummer time of year. Quiet too quiet. Friends have headed home. Not enough ambient buzz to distract me from…
A few months ago I began advising a young pop musician from New York named Ian Axel. He’s recorded a holiday song with an equally young YouTube phenom named Julia Nunes. It’s a cover from The Nightmare Before Christmas. It’s currently providing a welcome bit of noise.
And here’s a song that makes the impending silence seem like it’s going to be okay.
