Instead, we have a taste of an artist who is hoping to release a Christmas album in 2016.
James Gedeon plies his trade in northern New Jersey, for the most part--an area I lived in for a few years back in the 80s--and in New York. Gedeon's "sound" I'd call Soft Rock. The tunes from his 2004 CD, "This Is Me" (some of which you can hear here and here), remind me of America during their peak Soft Rock days, more than anything else, though the usual comparison artist is James Taylor (which I can see).
James has plans for both a new non-holiday album this year and a new acoustic Christmas album near its end. Let's hope he gets to all of it. He did post a number of Christmas standards up on YouTube this past December. "Some Children See Him" was posted December 25 and, as is usual with Christmas songs that go live on Christmas, probably very few people got to hear it.
Keep up with everything James is up to via Facebook and his web site.
