Friday favourites: Christmas music!

Well, we’re five days into advent which means the Christmas music has been playing for five days (on and off, I don’t want to get sick of it, so it still gets mixed in with a little Civil Wars, a little Ben Webb, a little Weepies).

I am loving the website, Noisetrade, at the moment – I find so much fantastic new music there and it’s all free! The artists themselves put it up for free, usually either as a way of growing their fanbase or as a thank you to fans. If you love the music, you can leave a “tip” for the artist, but it’s not required (but do it anyway – making music this good requires serious talent and effort).

Noisetrade has an insane amount of Christmas music happening at the moment and it’s mostly all folksy, alternative versions of the much-loved classics, which makes me love it even more. So here to help you with your own Christmas playlists, are some of my favourites to add to your collection today:



Sojourn – A Child is Born

Beta Radio – The Songs the Season Brings

Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors – A Neighborly Christmas

Branches – Merry Christmas

Laura Cooke – Christmas. in a Day

Lauren Melendez – A Very Ukelele Christmas 

Folk Angel – Christmas Songs

We Three Kings – The 12 Songs of Christmas

Zach Williams & the Bellow – A Little Christmas Cheer


Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Wishing you a restful and meaningful second Sunday in advent.
