Carla Muller spreads twice the evergreen cheer with her double-sided fundraising single Christmas Eve and Christmas At Home — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“If I go back far enough, I can remember past Christmases from my own younger days,” says the Ontario singer-songwriter. “I just have to close my eyes and I can picture my Mom in the kitchen, singing softly to herself, our old dog Cassidy barking his head off as the doorbell rings and scrabbling to greet friends. Boxing Day would bring carols, sung in a way that only family can, our voices blending as they rose and fell in harmony.
“It’s family, however you define it. I imagine next year, we’ll take the time to slow down and really enjoy the music, light and laughter of Christmas. When we can all be together again and hold one another close. How wonderful that will be!”
In a year of social distancing, Carla with a little help from her friends, completed live virtual recording to create modern contemporary holiday hits. While the tracks were recorded quickly, they were drawn from years of Carla’s writings, a perfect symbolic of the past and present, the Yuletide extension of the wistful wonderland. Supporting what we all need right now, Carla is donating 50% of the proceeds from these songs to Food Banks Canada.
