For Day 14 of 25 Days of Christmas I’ve got another nice little acoustic track from singer-songwriter Tracey Thorn.
“Joy,” is filled with strummed acoustic guitar, and Thorn’s beautiful alto voice. I can’t help but be reminded of Carly Simon, with the ease of her delivery. This is definitely a throw back to simpler times, when good pop music didn’t need to be accompanied by an image, an entourage, or anything else that has clouded the music industry as of late.
Perhaps this would be a good message during the holiday season, as it’s so easy to get caught up in the superficial and forgot about the substance. Like loving those around us, and being thankful for all that God has blessed us with.
