2020 might be (finally) winding down, but for Essex-based Louise Parker, it’s just ramping up – with a brand new, high-energy festive single to celebrate the holiday season. Oh Santa – released on 4th December – is Parker’s first Christmas single.
‘I am so happy to be releasing a Christmas song! Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year and, for me, it would not be the same without the music. (…) I could not be prouder of my very first Christmas song, I had so much fun making it.
Oh Santa is cheesy and fun, full of the tongue-in-cheek humour Parker is famed for. It has everything you could want from a holiday single – jingle bells, choir vocals, a great big smile and a cheesy storyline. You can hear all the fun Parker had – the song is joyous and bright with a surprise ending (you’ll have to have a listen for yourself!) and has a fantastic festive feel – it sounds like all of my favourite Christmas movies. This might be the song to kick-start the festive feeling!
Oh Santa is the fourth release of the year for Louise Parker. Her first – If You Want Me To, a duet with Joey Clarkson – reached the top five of the UK Country Chart, and her next two singles – Lie to Me and Just Friends – charted at #2 and #3 respectively. This year has also seen Parker nominated in both the ‘UK Female Country Singer’ and the headline ‘UK Country Artist of the Year’ categories at this years UK Country Music Awards.
