Marc Martel, former lead singer of Downhere, is back this year with some new Christmas music, and one of the new songs he released is a spin on the Charlie Brown classic, “Christmastime is Here”.
Marc says, “It takes me to that indescribably heart-achy side of Christmas. That calm-after-the-storm of another year gone by, that is part of what the holiday was designed for. It has always sounded like a meditation to me. And I love that it’s from a Peanuts cartoon. I’ve also grown quite fond of recording the jazzier tunes over the last few albums. They expand my musical tool box, make me a better piano player. They also give me a chance to explore the softer side of my voice, which is a welcome change of pace!”
“Christmastime Is Here” also happens to be the title of Marc’s new Christmas album. I’ve shared the lyric video below..Enjoy!
