Oh Humpers, are you feeling the slump like we have? These last few weeks crawling toward the Holidays have really been rough for those trying to get things tidied up in time for Yuletide cheer. Lucky for us — the ladies of Forte Femme have brought us a spectacular Holiday soundtrack to help us transition out of the hectic preparations and get to merry making already.
So take the jump with us and see all the details on their new EP — plus enjoy their new video for “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)” as well as last year’s awesome “O Come O Come Emmanuel.”
A Very Forte Femme Holiday, Forte Femme‘s new spectacular EP, features seven holiday classics that showcase not only their vocal virtuosity, but their unique (and stylish) approach to original arrangements. The EP was produced by Alana Griffith, Cristina Taddonio and Mark McLemore, engineered and mixed by Mark McLemore, and mastered by Dave Sperandio.
It is available on Itunes right here for just $6.93 and would make an awesome little appetizer gift for anyone in your life hungry to get the Holiday season happening.
Track list includes:
O Come, O Come Emmanuel
The Christmas Song
Deck the Halls
What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve
If you aren’t familiar with the powerhouse performers that make up the FF collective (review our interview from last December here!), they include the phenomenally talenteted Cristina Taddonio, Alana Griffith, Lauren Wedertz, Kara McLeland, Emily Angarole, Beta, Marsha Hancock, Anna Flautt… plus one pretty lucky (and equally talented) dude, Mark McLemore, who provides those low tones and the occasional beat-boxing.
Preview their take on “The Christmas Song” and enjoy their retro-styled, perfectly nostalgic video below…
And here’s a throwback to last year’s lovely “O Come O Come Emmanuel” (also featured on the EP)…
Now go buy the EP, play it at your holiday parties, and tell all your friends about how these incredible voices belong to our neighbors and count them among our many blessings this year.
Music City’s a beautiful place to call home and creative enterprises like Forte Femme are proof of the overwhelming talent and inspiring entrepreneurial spirit that will keep Nashville on the map as a serious cultural force long after the buzz of being the “It City” fades.
