I had the lovely privilege of working with the oh so talented Mara Measor on her christmas album Turn Me Up! If you haven’t heard of her yet, you should really get on it, and youtube her asap. Her voice is one of the jazz-ist, most mellow and soothing voices ever.
Actually before last year I was bit of a christmas grinch (but I’ve been working on my heart) so understandably I’m not normally much of a christmas tunes kind of person. But while listening to Mara’s rendition of the christmas songs, I surprisingly find myself singing along to it and I’m not just saying it for the plug, I seriously mean it! Her voice makes me enjoy the songs for what they really are.
Have a quick sample listen here and make sure to pick up you own physical copy on marameasor.com - digital sales start today! Not to mention she’s also super sweet and has one of the kindest hearts, for every album sold $1 will be donated to help ‘Land Is Life’ to bring typhoon relief to families in urgent need.
It makes for the perfect christmas present! Tis the beginning of the christmas season!
