This follow-up to 2019’s holiday EP, Christmas at 7222, Vol. 1, continues the goal of creating new holiday originals with a hint of nostalgia. However, Vol. 2 takes a slight detour, tackling some issues that affected us in 2020, and still affect many of us throughout this holiday season. Mental heath, relationship challenges, and the ever-looming presence of mortality and how precious it is, are the main themes addressed on this album. Through it all, hope still springs eternal, and that is the defining theme of this album, and every holiday season.
SURPRISE! Christmas has come early…not really, but what I have IS a nice surprise!
Today, I’m releasing the lead-off single to my forthcoming follow-up holiday EP, Christmas at 7222, Vol. 2. The song is called “Not Enough (Wishful Thinking)” and features one of my talented nephews who goes by the name of Wink, and Queens, New York native and emcee, SoSoon. Get ready, because this holiday single is on another level, giving you that “winter in New York, with Timberland boots on” feeling, while hitting you with thought-provoking and deeply introspective lyrics through and through.
Check out this banger of a single and help me continue to make amazing music for you by making a purchase on Bandcamp. Thanks for being a supporter of my craft, and please, be sure to write a comment under the track – either here or on Bandcamp – so the rest of the world can see how dope it is.
