Holiday EP Fresh From the Oven

For the last few years, our very own Kyle Zantos has been carefully crafting Christmas songs featuring various local musicians and song-writters including the likes of  Damien Jurado, Sam Anderson (Hey Marseilles) and all the gents in the BJA line-up. This year, I was pleased to get the call from Kyle regarding his newest work. I had the chance to write lyrics and sing over his latest: a jaunty, lively, Randy Newman-esque piano tune.

And so, we present “Santa’s Slay” — an original holiday song about breaking the news, facing the facts, and embracing the tangible over the superstitious during this season. Follow the link and find not only the original track available for download but also three special covers from Jim Henson’s 1971 Christmas classic, Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas, performed by all the members of the Bryan John Appleby Band.

Happy Holidays to you all. Thank you for all your continued support over the years. Please come say hi if you make it to a show in 2014.

All my best,

Bryan

About

Bryan John Appleby has been working hard this year writing the follow-up to his acclaimed debut, "Fire on The Vine". Expanding his palette both as a player and a writer, Appleby has started to incorporate elements of classic songwriters, with an intense pursuit for musical and lyrical excellence. Following the release of Fire On The Vine, BJA toured with notable acts Hey Marseilles, Deep Sea Diver and The Head and The Heart. Local festival performances at Bumbershoot, Doe Bay Fest, TimberFest, Seattle Folk Fest, and KEXP's Hood to Hood have further established BJA as a northwest staple.
