Award-winning and JUNO-nominated Toronto, ON-based reggae legend Jay Douglas has unveiled his new holiday single, “Merry Christmas”.
Characteristic of Jay Douglas, “Merry Christmas” does a great job of painting a clear picture for the listener — all while feeling warm and inviting. The award-winning reggae legend’s unparalleled energy and charm culminates into the production that is “Merry Christmas” to create that perfect “back home for the holidays” feeling, with a dash of cinematic production traits.
While being a new addition to the database of merry music, Douglas roots his composition in compositions of the likes of Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin. “Merry Christmas” features the smooth jazz rhythms accompanied by deep baritone sax and walking bass lines to lead the listener to the hyperbolic Christmas party. As “Merry Christmas” brings itself to an end, it sends the listener off with a proper bright, screaming swell of high-energy brass.
Following the successful release of his most recent single, “Stone In Love With You,” a homage and cover of the classic Stylistics song, Jay Douglas shifted gears and got into the spirit of the holidays. Fusing his love for American Blues and Jazz Standards, and a long history of R&B training debuted “Merry Christmas” for his growing fanbase.
