The Spacebomb House Band – Christmas Together (feat. Andy Jenkins) – Amazon Original

christmas_soul_v4_RGB_LG

The holidays are officially here! With help from singer and songwriter Andy Jenkins, the Spacebomb House Band recorded “Christmas Together” for Amazon’s Christmas Soul playlist. Complete with strings, horns, and tons of holiday spirit, it’s just what this season needs.

Watch the video for “Christmas Together (feat. Andy Jenkins),” directed by Tony Forgey:

Andy Jenkins on writing “Christmas Together”:

I started reading “The Chimes” by Charles Dickens to get into a haunted holiday spirit, and I hope there’s a bit of gothic charm conveyed in the verses, but the song took a more gentle romantic turn. Like any relationship, your feelings for a certain holiday can ebb and flow as you get older, and some years, the most wonderful day can leave you quite hopeless and empty. But then there’s a different joy, the camaraderie of friends as you age and the old holiday glow is transmuted into a new kind of light.

A Spacebomb Revue in London: A Look Back

At the Spacebomb Revue in London earlier this month, we invited artists from across the United States, UK, and France to take part in a grand scale performance with the Spacebomb House Band complete with strings, horns, and singers. Helming the ship on stage and off – alongside the host of the evening, Matthew E. White – was music director and Spacebomb’s in-house producer and arranger Trey Pollard.

Trey Pollard on his experience at the Revue:

Getting to share the stage with all these artists that we’ve worked with over the last few years, revisiting the music and in most cases performing the songs in a way that had never been done live, was very special. Seeing everyone come together and put on a show for the audience and ourselves, it felt like we were finishing a chapter of the Spacebomb Story.
