Sherri Harding Is Doin’ Christmas Right

The Canadian singer-songwriter is in the holiday spirit on her new single & video.

Sherri Harding will be Doin’ Christmas Right this year, starting with her new single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Produced by Dick Cooper, with Brian Cooper on bass and Rob Holtz on percussion, Harding’s enchanting new song is another project created in collaboration with The Cooper Brothers. Instrumentals by the world-class Muscle Shoals Horns inject warmth, energy, and a beloved holiday sound into the single.

The holiday has always been dear to the Ottawa singer, who treasures her childhood memories of selling Christmas trees with her siblings — and has always dreamed of producing original holiday music. With heartwarming lyrics and Harding’s signature soulful vocals, the song captures the magic of those childhood Christmases — the excitement, the joy, the bright lights on every corner — and allows the listener to experience anew the startling beauty of the holidays. Doin’ Christmas Right juxtaposes a giddy, youthful delight with the brilliant shine of being in love:

“This year’s like no other
How happy can one girl be?
Feels just like I’m a kid again
Feels like make-believe
This year I’m doing Christmas right.”

The single comes on the heels of Harding’s debut album A Million Pieces, released earlier this year. Also produced by Dick Cooper, the album featured a powerful lineup of seasoned musicians like David Hood, Kelvin Holly, Lynn Williams and others. Cooper wrote the album for Harding after her 2016 performance with The Cooper Brothers, where he recognized a stunning new talent deserving of the spotlight.

Harding’s success is well-earned. For years before her debut, she spent time on the road in various bands and venues, traveling as far as Bosnia and the Middle East for Armed Forces shows. But home beckoned, and the rising singer carved out a space for herself in the rock and soul space.
