The Runner Ups

SONG A – Jamie Wilson, It’s Christmas!!

Artist:
Jamie Wilson
Location:
Clonmany, Donegal
Song Title
It’s Christmas!!
Tell us about you & your song
My passion is writing music and I love Christmas so it made sense to combine my two favourite things together! I write and record all my material in a quite modest home studio. In the song I wanted to portray the excitement of Christmas along with the stresses of trying to control the kids but do so in a positive, energetic, lively fun song.

SONG B – John MacEvilly, Hope is a Candle

Artist:
John MacEvilly
Location:
Dublin
Song Title:
Hope is a Candle
Tell us about you & your song
‘Hope is A Candle’ is a very positive uplifting song, aimed at those who might be feeling down at Christmas time, yet there is always hope that things can change for the better. The song is performed by Thomas Daniels, a New York session singer.

SONG D – Shannon O’Connor, The Christmas Song

Artist:
Shannon O’ Connor
Location:
Meath
Song Title:
The Christmas Song
Tell us about you & your song:
This is my all time favourite Christmas song, it will forever live in the category of Christmas classics (not the cheesy list!). I always think back to my dad singing this every December, doing his best Nat King Cole voice which he was amazing at. Guitar performed by Andrew Cassidy.
