Send Me Some Snow by Chris Standring and Kathrin Shorr

Chris Standring is in stellar six string form throughout this highly organic spin on holiday cheer and teams up well with vocalist Kathrin Shorr. Part old school and orchestrated with just a dash of pop gloss for finish, tunes such as the snappy opener "Send Me Some Snow" are done with style, taste and pizazz while backed by some of the finest studio musicians available. As a songwriting team Standring could not have been teamed with a better partner with Shorr's vocals offering up an intoxicating warmth and inflection few vocalists can be taught much less deliver with such ease. Chris Standring while a virtuoso guitarist opts for the more zen like less is more approach for a real ensemble feel that is infectious as it subtle.

 

So if you are just the least bit toasted by some of the same Christmas music that seems to be as tired and predictable as the tie received each year for Christmas. Send Me Some Snow should go well in any hot rotation! Some old fashioned holiday fun to warm even the heart of this Christmas grinch!
