"Spirit of Christmas Time" by R&B/Pop singer Natalie Brown. Don't be glum when you look at the clouds. They're full of snow that will soon sprinkle down. Lots of fun, we'll go frolic around; come on its Christmas time! Sums it all up. This one happens to be one of the favorite Christmas songs for kids. I wrote this song after observing all the long faces that appear once the winter season begins as a way to get people to look on the bright side of things when it looks dull all around.
Available at iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp now! Enjoy, embed, share and have an amazing Holiday season xoxox
This is a single off of my new Christmas project. This latest project is a five song original Christmas EP called “This Christmas”. The songs on the EP blend old school spirit with new school A/C, Pop production values and vocal stylings similar to Morgan James, Colbie Caillat & Sam Smith. http://www.natalie-brown.com
Whistling, hand claps, funk-strumming guitar, and a boppin’ bass line lay the sonic stage for Natalie Brown’s luminous vocals on “Wish Upon a Star”, the first track of the self-released EP “This Christmas“. The up-tempo jazz-inspired “Spirit of Christmas Time” follows, marrying old-school with new-school before taking the listener back to Natalie’s Pop/R&B roots with the mid-tempo track “Favorite Time of Year”. The EP then settles into the mellow zone with the beautifully rendered ballads “Save the Last Dance” and “This Christmas” – the latter being the title track of the EP and a tribute to Natalie’s mother who lost a valiant battle with cancer in 2013.
Fans of Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Sam Smith and Morgan James will definitely find something to enjoy on this Holiday release. With musical influences ranging from Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin, to Stevie Wonder and Gladys Knight, Natalie Brown’s music is described as uplifting and inspiring and fuses R&B/Pop with Adult Contemporary and a touch of ‘soul’. “When the music began to play and her voice began to sing, I knew that I had to meet her, feel her energy and hear her voice in person. Natalie is alluring and sensual, warm and healing” says Grammy Award-winning R&B and soul singer-songwriter Chrisette Michele.
