BY LINE Mandalong Records Peter Senior’s “The Christmas Tree”
I love Christmas, but I have to say the same old Christmas songs are getting, well, old. So this new release from Peter Senior is a bit of a godsend. A great rock n roll song with a terrific groove and fun lyrics, heart warming and ready to sing along to. It’s in a classic retro style, bringing to mind Billy Joel or even, dare I say it, Shakin’ Stevens!
Peter Senior is a Sydney based singer songwriter with a clear love for Americana and a tender lyric. He’s had great success in Australia already with a couple of hit singles and his latest album, “On The Edge” was released earlier this year.
This Christmas song is perfect for parties and I can imagine it becoming a regular Christmas favorite. Office parties, family get togethers, holiday road trips, Christmas movies, radio marathons!! Senior sings of his own Christmas as a kid, playing in the moonlight, decorating the tree, the excitement of waiting for Santa, everything we all remember in from own Christmases…we can all relate, and it brings all those wonderful childhood memories back as he sings this lovely rock n roll ode to a Christmas tree…great stuff!
