    Last month I got commissioned by my regional Visitors Bureau to write and record an original Christmas tune to launch a Christmas Campaign for tourism for the area.

    I received total funding for the 2 studio sessions and digital distribution etc.

    They are very happy with the outcome and as exactly what they were looking for. I'm happy how it turned out as well.

    The youtube/spotify just hit yesterday.

    A successful Christmas song is a ticket to retirement.

    The tune made the news last nite!

    A travel writer listed my town in an online article as #1 of 10 Places to visit at Christmas that makes you feel like you are in a Hallmark Movie and mentioned the tune.

    On Saturday. I posted the article on my music FB page as well as my hotel's.

    Since then, it has over 1.4K shares and 9K Engagements on FB.

    The local news station picked up on it and came to hotel to interview.

    Check it out!
