REIGAN – DECEMBER EP (Sony Music Australia)
After wowing audiences on The X Factor, Reigan has released a special live holiday EP ‘December’. The four track DECEMBER EP re-imagines the timeless and celebrated hymns of the holidays, all recorded live and unrehearsed. These beautiful and heartfelt renditions will inspire and evoke memories of the classic season of old. Each of the four tracks is accompanied with a video highlighting the powerful and visceral nature of the recordings and Reigan’s raw and instinctive talent.
As Reigan explains, “The songs I’ve chosen to cover are all between 100-200 years old. I wanted to pay respect to the original songs by keeping the melodies and lyrics the same but changing the structure, tempo and chords.”
Reigan adds, “My family are quite festive. We play Christmas music from the 1st of December until Boxing day. I have so much Christmas music on my iTunes but I didn’t have any of the timeless carols! I wanted to open these songs up and share some of my favourites.”
The EP is filled with emotion and dynamic that only Reigan can deliver. Her emotional take of ‘Grace’ (an adaption of ‘Amazing Grace’) is both powerful and beautiful and shows Reigan’s vulnerability. The last track ‘Holly’ (‘Deck The Halls’) ends the EP on a cheerful holiday note.
‘December’ is an amazing and diverse EP that is the perfect gift for Christmas.
