Bellew Christmas by Elise Bellew
Bellew Christmas is the first solo release from Elise Bellew and includes 5 classic Christmas songs with unique arrangements produced by Elise Bellew and Nashville engineer/producer Michael Head. Guest musicians include Ken Lewis on Drums (12 Years a Slave/Chris Cornell, Lana Del Rey, The Civil Wars), Blair Masters on Keys (Peter Frampton, Barry Manilow, Amy Grant), Mark Hill on Bass (12 Years a Slave/Chris Cornell, The Civil Wars, Kelly Clarkson), and Mike Payne on Guitar (Erin McCarley, Jordin Sparks, Plumb).
With songs that include the ultra vibey “Blue Christmas” which brings to mind Lana Del Ray and Sarah McLachlan; an upbeat, almost Mumford & Sons-infused version of “Winter Wonderland”; a folk-goth lamenting love song version of “Greensleeves”; a Regina Spektor/Aimee Mann-inspired version of “Silver Bells”; and a Travis/Beatles-influenced “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”, fans of The Mary Dream will not be disappointed with Elise Bellew’s first solo release!
