I was 31. December ’09, now looking back, was the eve of a tough year (2010) that would eventually lead to a very prolific stage of life and career. None of this I could have predicted nor imagined at the time of this release.
Perhaps these Christmas recordings that I made, somehow, reflect my state of mind at the time – kind of a more simplistic view of life, but longing for movement forward. I enjoy my subdued cover (which was recorded on a single take) of Wham’s “Last Christmas”. Also of note is my own composition, “Born Again on Christmas Day”, which by the way does have lyrics – but I only got around to this instrumental recording.
In terms of bonus goods, this EP contains my cover of Janet Jackson’s “Love Will Never Do (Without You)”, and also an interesting TV Theme Medley.
So enjoy listening to this 31-year-old version of me – you can wish him good tidings and blessings ahead, but you already know that all came true.
