Bostonian Michelle Lewis Captures the Wonder of a New England Christmas

I had a short note the other day from the manager of singer/songwriter Michelle Lewis, whose first holiday single, a wonderfully rich version of the classic carol "In the Bleak Midwinter" was released today. Lewis, who, like me, is a native Bostonian, already has a couple of full-length albums to her credit. She has a strong and beautiful voice with just the tiniest twinge of melancholy, all of which is remarkably well-suited for her well-crafted, folk-based material.  I really liked the new Christmas song at first listen, but what truly took me over the top was the music video released with with it today. This package seems to capture that special magic of a cold New England Christmas:

As a special holiday gift, you can download an acoustic version of some of Lewis's previous material absolutely free from NoiseTrade (click below). This is a limited-time offer, so don't miss out:

Finally, Lewis has a couple of live performances scheduled this month: the first in Saratoga Springs, New York, this Thursday, December 4, and the other a live internet concert you can watch from the comfort of your sofa. The first one is free, and the second has a "pay whatever you wish" policy, which sounds like a value to me. Information on both shows is available HERE.
