Award-winning singer/songwriter Lockwood Barr is celebrating the holiday season with the release of a five song EP. The project features four Christmas classics as well as an original track, Christmas In Memphis, penned by Barr and Barrett Baber. The Voice alum also lends his blues driven vocals on the title track. Christmas In Memphis can be found on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and all other online retailers.
“My favorite part of the Christmas season has always been the music, so I’m surprised it took me this long to put out a Christmas record,” says Lockwood. “What listeners will hear is a completely different side to me; a more gentle and vulnerable one. I hope they love it.”
Lockwood adds her own unique spin to holiday favorites such as White Christmas, where she showcases her banjo skills, and the jazz fueled Let It Snow where her smooth vocals dance around flawless saxophone and upright bass solos. Christmas In Memphis is sure to become a go-to holiday staple on everyone’s playlist for years to come. Barr’s and Baber’s vocals blend beautifully while painting a poignant picture of longing and heartache. “Christmas in Memphis is full of the blues, ‘cause this year on Christmas I ain’t got you,” belts the duo. “If I could have one thing, I’d just have one wish, to have you here with me for Christmas in Memphis.”
