BACK in October, I reviewed The Overtones at the Sage Gateshead, and said they would be perfect for singing wintery Christmas songs.
And it would seem the boys read this review and answered my prayers, as the five piece’s Christmas songs will hit the digital world this weekend.
The doo-wop band will round off an amazing year with a festive feast of Christmas classics.
Australian-born bass singer Lachie’s voice more than lends itself to the sound of Christmas, with just a hint of Frank Sinatra mixed in with their unmistakable style.
Fans have come to know and love their unique arrangements of well known songs, and this Christmas collection is no different.
White Christmas, Sleigh Ride, Winter Wonderland and my favourite, Most Wonderful Time of the Year, all get a bit of the Overtones magic sprinkled over them, in this small, but perfectly formed collection.
1. White Christmas
2. Sleigh Ride
