Jodi King, singer from "It's Christmastime" video (Youtube)
To celebrate the holiday season, we at SCENE thought it would be fun to provide you with some one-stop shopping. For music videos, that is!
To start things off, Jodi King reminds us what is important at this time of year..."when the wrapping and the bows are thrown away".
Cat Jahnke has been so busy lately, recording tracks for her upcoming project (a digital mixtape scheduled for release early in the new year), that she found all she needed to do was "Let it Snow Let it Snow Let it Snow" to get in the Christmas spirit.
James Struthers manages to find goodness every day, not just at Christmas. In this video he shows how things might seem like they're going from bad to worse, but with a positive outlook (and a lucky lottery ticket), things can turn out alright. In fact, it's "Still Gonna Feel like Christmas".
Jaylene Johnson finished recording "It Won't Be Christmas 'til You're Home" in early November. Then she had an operation to fix an existing condition but something went wrong during the operation and she was left without her voice.
Johnson is on a waiting list for a voice clinic and has been advised to rest her voice as much as she can. "I don't feel myself," she admits. "I'm trying to keep in mind that it could be much worse, and there are people who suffer more than me, but still, I'd like my singing voice wrapped up and under the Christmas tree, thanks!"
Finally, while this video by JP Hoe isn't specific to Christmas, it's very new. Hoe posted it on December 14. "Nothing's Gonna Harm You" is from his 2012 Mannequin album.
It was created by Procter Bros. Industries, and produced with the support of Manitoba Film and Music. And according to Ismaila Alfa, host of SCENE on Air, "I think this is the best Winnipeg music video of the year!"
Happy Holidays from all of us at SCENE!
