The good people over at Mile High Productions were kind enough to send over a link to the press kit for the new Bunny Sigler Christmas album ‘When You’re In Love At Christmas Time’.
I quite like it. Smooth modern sound that still harkens back to the classics of soul. You can check out several tracks here: http://mileshighproductions.com/images/tracks/christmas/index.html
I’m not sure if it was intentional on their part, but it’s certainly easy enough to grab the files they have for listening to play back on your own devices. But really, if you’re a fan of good Christmas music, and in this case classic R&B, you probably want to support the artist to make sure we get more music in the future. Same is true for all the artists sharing their holiday music with us, make sure you make it worth their while, buy something from them if you like what you hear.
And I just want to add, even though they sent this link through a couple of years ago, I still catch myself singing along with the title track whenever I hear the name. I think this album should have gotten more attention than it did. Check it out and see if you agree.
From the press release:

Sigler knows how to set the scene for Christmas.

Each song is perfectly executed and sure to have all its listeners in the holiday spirit.
This Philadelphia native began his singing career in churches all over the metropolitan area with songs like “O Lord My God” and “The Lord’s Prayer”. When You’re In Love At Christmas Time shows that it’s more than just the music that captivates his heart; it’s a testimony of his relationship with Jesus Christ. “I’m in this for real,” says Sigler. “Although I’ve sung urban music, I never stopped singing sacred music. For me, it’s all about ministry.”
Bunny Sigler is a rare breed of pure talent. His the holiday album When You’re In Love At Christmas Time will be penned as a timeless Christmas classic and it will certainly be a repeat album for many seasons to come.
