Hailing from the island of Jersey, UK, critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Frankie Davies is set to release Home This Year. A five-track collection of Christmas songs, the EP is due for release on 18th December.
“Christmas this year is going to be a challenge for many families across the world. Writing this collection of songs was a way of looking back fondly on my family traditions, but also coming to terms with the fact that I may not get to share Christmas with them.”
If you’re looking for joyful and upbeat, this isn’t it. If mellow and soothing to offset the mania of the season is more your speed, however, Davies’ EP will be right at home in your library. With distinctive, angelic vocals and poignant lyrics, these five songs will resonate with just about everyone. Home This Year and Something About Christmas relate stories of Davies’ own family celebrations, whilst All I Need For Christmas is a love song and a nod to her husband’s partnership.
Forgive Me – the centrepiece of the EP – is an apology for not making it home, and is perhaps the most resonant of the collection in 2020. Finally, New Year’s Resolutions ends the EP on a more optimistic note with an attitude of positivity.
Continually championed by Bob Harris and with plenty of airtime on BBC Radio 2, Davies has performed at Nashville’s Americana Music Festival and CMA Festival, as well as appearing at the UK’s biggest country event C2C. She has shared stages with some of the biggest names in country music, including Chris Young, Maddie & Tae, Lissie and The Shires. In support of her release, she will be playing The Acorn in Penzance on 26th February 2021.
