Hallymusic Shares Yuletide Single

Hallymusic has shared his new unexpectedly seasonal single ‘Christmas Eve’ which is reminiscent of ‘Fairytale of New York’ taking us on a winding tour down Yuletide’s darker alleys. Released on 4th Dec via ArtHouse Records IE, Hallymusic has also announced that a new album will be released after a series of bimonthly single releases in 2021.

‘Christmas Eve’ and the forthcoming album features an array of Ireland’s finest improvising musicians. ‘Christmas Eve’ was produced, recorded and mixed by Hally over a few days of live sessions with his band ‘The Hymns’ at his studio in Co. Kildare. Everything was recorded onto 2” analog tape and the song was mastered by Grammy Award winning Engineer and producer Ruadhri Cushnan at Camden Studio in Dublin. On drums – Kevin Brady, double bass – Dave Redmond, piano – Scott Flannigon, backing vocals & horn arrangement – Meilana Gillard, backing vocals – Paul Quin, trumpets – Mike Barkley, Lead vocal & guitars – Hally.

‘The song is impeccably recorded, and as a listener you feel as though you are inside the recording, which invokes a bright and lively jazz room, where each instrument and sound occupies its own space and makes its own contribution to the story; in short, an absolute pleasure for the ears’ – Pat Spillane.

Hally’s reputation as a songwriter and musician was firmly established in the minds of those who followed his mammoth ‘Peeling Onions’ project back in 2017. He wrote, recorded and released a song and music video every week for the entire year. Since then he has been crafting a niche for himself producing, recording and mixing for other artists at his aptly named ArtHouse Studio. Stocked with amazing instruments and equipment, Hally has recorded a lot of Jazz & Improvised records in recent years. He has worked with New York saxophonist/composer Seamus Blake, pianist Bill Carrothers & George Colligan. The latter album was voted best UK Piano Trio Jazz album in 2020. Hally has made records with a host of other jazz musicians, indie bands and singer-songwriters in the last few years. Here is a link to his full Biog.

‘Hally’s perfectly placed unique melodic wail tells a tale of lovers living through an evening that neither wants to end, interrupted momentarily by a brief but beautiful trumpet solo which sets a more celebratory mood, and you have yourself a potent and poignant seasonal concoction, unlike any other tune of Christmas past.’ – Pat Spillane.
