Artist Feature: Strymon Holiday Sounds – Jingle All the Way!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…Why? Because it’s time for our annual Strymon Holiday Sounds Artist Feature. Happy Holidays everyone!

We always look forward to this part of the year because so many of you post such beautiful and innovative interpretations of holiday music. We’ve been gathering holiday-themed posts for last few months and are excited to finally be able to share them with you. We hope you enjoy the music and we wish you all a joyful holiday season and a peaceful new year.

Chad Reed’s version of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” is very merry indeed with its sweet harmonic touches and snoozing canine guest star. Sit back and enjoy this musical treat – it’s tailor-made for an evening or afternoon curled up in front of the fireplace sipping a nice warm mug of hot chocolate.

Bill Vencil used Riverside, DIG, and TimeLine to create this mesmerizing and haunting ambient guitar meditation on “What Child is This?”

It’s definitely a white synth-mas in this fun cover of “White Christmas” by Brooklyn-based musician and composer Pianosa.

Kyle Hamlin evokes the ethereal sound and light of Harry Potter with a touch of holiday bells in this captivating video and composition.

And now for a slightly different take on “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Flint tremolo abounds in this other-wordly interpretation of the holiday classic by Bryan Lopez of ambientnotes.

This swingin’ version of “White Christmas” by Alkis puts us right in the holiday spirit with its rich and reverb-infused BigSky tone and nod to crooners Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby.

Guitarist James Snider invites us to get in the holiday spirit with his version of “Deck the Halls,” featuring El Capistan.

Run Dufresne’s “Seasonal Depression” finishes out our collection with an original holiday song written for “all you sad folks out there.” Using DIG and layers of vocals, guitar, percussion, and synth, this song is bound to lift your mood. Enjoy!
