Santa Claus is Rockin’ (Bradley Gillis) is a charity Christmas single written by Glen Shire, Limerick in aid of Barnardos. It was recorded at Windmill Lane Studios, Dublin and includes an array of the best musicians in the business who have worked with The Corrs, Andrew Llyod Webber, Imelda May, Chris Rea, Van Morrison, Westlife, Jerry Lee Lewis, Mike and the Mechanics and many more. It was executive produced by Simon Shire and vocals were recorded by Bradley Gillis from New York. 

The accompanying music video was shot by director Maurice Linnane who worked on documentaries for the Foo Fighters, U2 and the Cranberries. 

It was officially launched at Windmill Lane on Fri 23, November. From preliminary reviews on YouTube and by leading Irish and UK DJs, it is widely anticipated it will become a Christmas standard for many years to come. 

It is available to purchase on iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon and will shortly be in Tower Records, Wicklow Street and O’Connell Street, Dublin and Savins Music, O’Connell Street, Limerick.
