Steve Jensen celebrates togetherness with his cheery single and video Xmas Time With You — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“It’s Christmas time! Whaddya know?” is the question that kicks off this merry and bright track as Jensen reminisces about Christmases past — wishing “you were here with me” with a bit of bittersweetness in his warm, welcoming vocal, along the way. Add in the jingle-jangle of guitars, a pinch of piano, and a lively shuffle, and you certainly have a Santa-approved aural treat for the holiday season.
“When I thought up this song, I had a thought of my brother Ken and I growing up in South Burnaby and how a happy and simpler time it was then,” Jensen recalls.
Xmas Time With You is the latest entry in the wide and varied songwriting catalog of this seasoned Coquitlam, B.C. artist. The song arrives on the heels of his single Skytrain Babe, as well as Jensen’s second album Gimme the Goods. His self-titled debut album was mastered at none other than Abbey Road Studios in London.
