Singer-songwriter Martin Davis, known for his song ‘Oak Tree Lament‘ written to bring awareness of the Stop HS2 campaign, and known as the finalist for UK Country Radio song of the year, has recently released an up-tempo Christmas song Christmas Won’t Be Christmas Without You.
Teaming up with songwriter and producer Malcolm Jagger, the duo play to their individual strengths by developing their own songwriting formula, with Malcolm providing the instrumental arrangement whilst Martin works on a lyrical story and melodic top line until they achieve a track ready for the world. As a skilled musician and multi-instrumentalist, Malcolm plays every stringed instrument on the track, giving Martin a strong foundation to build upon, not only for their own collaborations but also for the creation of tracks for Martin’s band ‘The Mighty Stampede’ due to release their first EP ‘Embers’ in early 2018.
Taking inspiration from George Michael’s up-tempo power ballads, Christmas Won’t Be Christmas Without You is a warming, festive track featuring strong melodic content paired with story-telling lyrics.
Recorded in Malcolm’s bedroom studio, the pair follow a strong DIY ethos allowing their genuine love for well written and arranged songs to shine through.
