Just in time for the holidays, Halifax-based adult contemporary singer–songwriter, Linda Brooks releases a six-song EP titled, Give Yourself A Little Christmas and will perform at St. Cecilia Studios in Halifax on Saturday, Dec. 15th at 7 p.m.
Give Yourself A Little Christmas, co-produced by Brooks and Nashville musician/producer, Chris Leuzinger, is less “commercial Christmas”, and more “sentimental Christmas” with Brooks introducing two originals as well as putting her own unique spin on four traditional songs, “O Holy Night”, “Silent Night”, “Do You Hear What I Hear” and a moving rendition of “Auld Lang Syne”,
Featuring beautiful vocal performances, the EP is an excellent representation of Brooks’ range as an artist. “I wanted to offer some great music, both new and familiar to enjoy throughout the season. Something that would not increase the noise, but offer a pleasant backdrop to navigate the chaos, and perhaps a moment or two to reflect on the things that mean the most to each of us.”
The title track and single, “Give Yourself A Little Christmas” premieres on radio Tuesday, November 12th and a video for the song will be released mid-November. The EP also features her holiday song “This Christmas” released to radio in 2011 with an accompanying video which she filmed in California. It can be viewed on YouTube.
Brooks will also be giving a preview performance with CD’s available at Thornbloom (1459 South Park Street), as part of Spring Garden Road’s “Shopping Under The Stars” evening event on Friday, Dec. 6th.
Give Yourself A Little Christmas is Brooks’ fourth recording. She released The Upside in 2012, The Spaces In Between in 2009 and her acclaimed debut, Under a Painted Moon. In addition to her musical successes, Brooks is an actor and has guest-starred on CBC’s hit comedy, “mr.d”.
