Retro-tinged vocalist and instrumentalist Christopher Davis-Shannon has released a video and free download of the 1934 holiday classic “Winter Wonderland”. Backed by his video the self produced video features the sights and sounds of Philadelphia in wintertime.
Davis-Shannon performs nearly 200 dates a year throughout the country, with international touring and recording credits to his name. His fresh approach to traditional American music has thrilled audiences of all ages, from Philadelphia to New Orleans. Winter Wonderland marks the first release from his new trio that will be recording its first record in the next year, bookended by two solo releases.
Mike Batchelor at Kettle Pot Tracks may have said it best:
Christopher writes good songs, plays the crap out of them, and smiles every second he’s doin’ it. Let this guy into your lives a little, and be better for it!"
In lieu of selling the track , Davis-Shannon requests donations Rock to the Future to help further music education in Philadelphia. Rock to the Future is a 501(c)3 organization founded in 2010 that provides music education for Philadelphia’s underserved youth at no cost to them or their families.
Davis-Shannon and his trio can be found at Baril on 19th street the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month and as a mainstay in the Library bar at the Rittenhouse Hotel when he is not on the road.
