LINDA BROOKS Give Yourself A Little Christmas

A Sweet Release...

Posted: November 29, 2013

(Halifax, NS) - Just in time for the holidays, Halifax-based adult contemporary singer–songwriter, Linda Brooks releases a six-song EP titled, Give Yourself A Little Christmas and will perform at St. Cecilia Studios in Halifax on Sunday, December 15 at 7 p.m.

Linda BrooksBrooks will also be giving a preview performance at Thornbloom (1459 South Park Street), as part of Spring Garden Road’s “Shopping Under The Stars” evening event on Friday, December 6.

A sophisticated and charismatic performer on stage and in the studio, Brooks’ voice has been compared to a "cross between Karen Carpenter and Toni Tennille", and her "melodic, lyric-driven pop music" in the vein of "Tori Amos and Sarah McLachlan."

Give Yourself A Little Christmas, co-produced by Brooks and Nashville musician/producer, Chris Leuzinger, is less "commercial Christmas", and more "sentimental Christmas" with Brooks putting her own unique spin on four traditional songs, “O Holy Night”, “Silent Night”, “Do You Hear What I Hear”, and a moving rendition of “Auld Lang Syne”.

ASLindaBrooksCDGiveYourselfALittleChristmasFeaturing beautiful vocal performances, the EP is an excellent representation of Brooks’ range as an artist. “I wanted to offer some great music, both new and familiar to enjoy throughout the season. Something that would not increase the noise, but offer a pleasant backdrop to navigate the chaos, and perhaps a moment or two to reflect on the things that mean the most to each of us.”

For the pre-production of two tracks on this EP, Brooks worked for the first time with local producer and musician Cory Tetford. She carried on to Nashville in September where she recorded the new EP with Chris Leuzinger, Gary Prim, Eddie Bayers, Dave Pomeroy and engineer, Bob Bullock.

Give Yourself A Little Christmas is Brooks’ fourth recording. She released The Upside in 2012, The Spaces In Between in 2009 and her acclaimed debut, Under a Painted Moon. In addition to her musical successes, Brooks is an actor and has guest-starred on CBC’s hit comedy, “mr. d”.
