Nils - Christmas Everyday

Posted by April Galenzoski on 2018/11/19

If I were a German born guitarist who later immigrated to California, I would want to celebrate Christmas every day, too! Imagine yearning for home and its holiday traditions while wondering if you have to slap on sunscreen for the day! In the song, 'Snow Outside My Window', Nils has created a musical landscape based on his memory of growing up in Deutschland. 'Merry, Merry Christmas', another original written by Nils, features the stunning vocals of Erin Stevenson (Duran Duran, Janet Jackson), with drummer Tony Moore (Jeff Lorber, Gerald Albright, Robben Ford), bassist Daryl Williams and legendary session vocalist and keyboardist, Clydene Jackson. Her trusty Fender Rhodes keyboard lends that true vintage sound to 'Silent Night' sung beautifully by Erin Stevenson. This carol is one of my all time Christmas favourites and the crew offers a fantastic rendition.

Other classics recorded with that Nils ‘guitar magic’ sound so reminiscent of Clapton and Benson are 'Jingle Bells', 'The Christmas Song' and 'My Favourite Things’. The 12 song collection wraps up with Nils on acoustic guitar and providing the rarely heard lead vocals himself on the title song, ‘Christmas Everyday’. His ode to the spirit of Christmas in all of us...every day. Fröhliche Weihnachten, everyone!
