My memories of Christmas live in the music that I listened to while making Christmas dinner with my Grandma Mary. The songs that rang through the house while we unwrapped gifts and prayed together over the food. I wanted to create an album that had all the fixings of a Christmas dinner but with a healthy helping of soul. A Christmas album that you would want to listen to even if it wasn't Christmas. In a world that is in much need of some joy let's start with the soul.
Taking inspiration from my favourite artists, I reached out to Amy Winehouse's drummer, Annie Lennox's guitar player and Gregory Porter's bass player and asked them would they make a record with me. To my surprise they said yes and what we have created is nothing short of magic.
We have all your favourite holiday classics such as "Do You Hear What I Hear" and "I'll be Home for Christmas" plus "Joyful Joyful" from the movie Sister Act 2 and a bonus track from the Dreamgirls musical. I hope you enjoy the album!
