This is a charming and wistful Christmas song that sneaks up with cold hands and a mug of warm toddy to let you know that you matter.
Patriotism and love, family and service, gratitude and longing all mashed together without a sleigh bell in sight!
A far stretch away from the bells and over-production more commonly on display at this time of year. Joe The Bluesman leans towards the likes of The Pogues with this single, yet maintaining the opening acoustic purity throughout the entire lifespan of the beautifully thoughtful and appreciative Christmas With You.
Following a brief creative hiatus, artist and songwriter Kyle Richardson returns with a fresh hit – perfectly crafted and designed to warm up the incoming winter season.
