John Oates Featuring The Time Jumpers With Orginal Holiday Song

JOHN OATES 

New Original Holiday Song
Featuring: The Time Jumpers
OUT TODAY
NASHVILLE, TN…Rock
and Roll Hall of Famer, John Oates, announces the release of his new
Christmas single and collaboration with The Time Jumpers, “Santa Be Good
To Me.” Out today, the song is available on the websites hallandoates.com and johnoates.com
as a limited edition vinyl single with an option to buy an autographed
version. The holiday themed vinyl will also include “Children Go Where I
Send Thee” as a b-side. Digital downloads are available at most outlets
including iTunes and Google Play.
When
asked about the inspiratation behind the song, Oates replied, “So much
has been said when it comes to holiday songs, there is a very narrow
frame of references that work in this genre. I’ve always wanted to write
and record a swing style song. It reminds me of the music that my folks
listened to when I was a young kid. I penned the original version of
‘Santa Be Good To Me’ with Josh Charles, Steven Davis and Allisa Moreno.
We tried to write a contemporary lyric talking about trying to find
love an companionship in a modern world and still not lose the holiday
spirit.”
Nashville’s
multi GRAMMY nominated band, The Time Jumpers, are the perfect
complement to the timeless sound of the song. The members of “The Time
Jumpers” who played on the record, each a master of his instrument,
include: Vince Gill (electric guitar), Paul Franklin (steel guitar),
Brad Albin (upright bass), Billy Thomas (drums), Kenny Sears (fiddle),
Larry Franklin (fiddle), Joe Spivey (fiddle) Andy Reiss (electric
guitar) and Jeff Taylor (accordion).
On
working with The Time Jumpers Oates adds, “The first time I heard them
perform I was blown away by their high level of musicianship and knew
someday I wanted to record with them. ‘Santa Be Good To Me’ felt like
the perfect song to work on together. We recorded it live in the
studio…it was magic…everything I hoped for and more.”
