Holiday Single “Let’s Ditch Christmas” Available Now

I’m a grinch.

For whatever reason, presents, candy canes, Santa, caroling (ESPECIALLY caroling), and little tater tots with their eyes all aglow don’t do much for me. So, I did what you’d expect and wrote a Christmas song. MERRY CHRISTMAS.

I hate most holiday music, but the stuff I do love comes almost exclusively from the crooner era of the ’50s and 60’s: Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby and so on. The lyrics are pure schmaltz, the arrangements are sugary, but throw in a playful bourbon-soaked vocal with a dash of sleigh bells and it just works.

With “Let’s Ditch Christmas” I tried to combine grinchy-ness with a big band sound I love. I hope you like it.

Happy Holidays,

Jeremy

P.S. – If anyone at Fox News reads this: this is the War on Christmas’ ground zero. It is my sincere hope that this song becomes a battle-hymn and next year we are all dancing around Festivus poles or celebrating Saturnalia or something.
