After two successful solo albums, there is no doubt that Andreas Aleman is the preeminent soul singer in Sweden and a world-class performing artist. He has performed with the acclaimed band, Santa Fe & the Fat City Horns at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, had sold out shows at the world-renowned jazz club, Fasching, in Stockholm, and toured in Sweden, Germany and Denmark. With his first two albums, THIS IS LIFE & IT’S THE JOURNEY, Andreas Aleman proved that he had the voice, the songs and the grooves to make him recognized as one of Sweden’s most soulful artists. And now comes one of the funkiest, most soulful and heartfelt Christmas albums in recent history.
HOME FOR CHRISTMAS features some of the very best musicians in Scandinavia and two incredible guest artists. And what makes this album special is that not only is it a Christmas album, it is a Christmas album with all original songs.
“When Brian (co-writer, Brian Hobbs) and I sat down and started thinking about this album we decided early on, that even though we love the old Christmas standards, we wanted to do something new, something original. So that’s what we did,” says Andreas.
The album has something for everyone; funk and soul, gospel, ballads, duets, latin and blues. With HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, Andreas Aleman continues his journey by giving us great songs, first-class productions, great arrangements and his unique style of vocals and playing.
If you want a new soundtrack for the holidays, this is the album for you; a great way to say Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
"Christmas Albums isn't usually my cup of tea, listening to the same themes again and again. But Andreas Aleman's "Home for Christmas" offers 10 brand new original songs in the perfect Christmas atmosphere with the great groove, music and vocals heard on the 2 previous records by this talented artist. A must have to end 2014 and start a new year with smile!" Arnaud Leger
