For all of our talk of avoiding Christmas songs, we’ve decided to make an exception. That’s ‘A Little Christmas Of My Own’ provides something different. You would think we’ve been given plenty of Christmas songs throughout the years and left to add to the genre, but Nicki Wells has proven this point wrong, coming out with the most authentic piece of festive sounds we’ve ever heard.
‘A Little Christmas Of My Own’ is a tender piano and vocal song that presents that hidden side of Christmas where some may not have a family to go to for the holidays. Despite Wells’ vocals being tinged with sorrow, there’s an extraordinary sense of peace and acceptance in her tone, making this track a heartening embrace.
“It’s a bittersweet song about Christmas because for some, it can be a lonely time, not everyone has a family to go to. But by the end there is a sweet acceptance of a quiet and calm Christmas,” shares Nicki Wells.
The magnetic piano progression, the intimate vocals and the intricate vocal harmony sequences are, in true Nicki Wells fashion, simply exquisite! We are over the moon to be expecting a full body of work from Wells in a couple of months. If this is what she can do for Christmas, imagine what she can do year-round!
