Micah Edwards is a retro-pop singer-songwriter based in Huston, Texas. The singer infuses nostalgic elements into modern sounds and aims to blend contemporary techniques with a classic style – often melding pop and blues with retro-soul and current R&B. Edwards has enjoyed a successful debut as an artist over the last year, often being described as a “John Mayer meets Leon Bridges” type, and hopes to continue the path of connecting with listeners through music that touches hearts and helps people feel good. Having gained nearly 80k monthly listeners on Spotify, and editorial support from Spotify’s Nu-Blue, Summer Party, Fresh Finds, and Fresh Finds: Pop playlists, the Houston native is generating plenty of buzz and rapidly building a loyal fanbase.
On November 19, 2020, Edwards released his holiday themed song “December 26”. Premiering on pop-culture tastemaker Parade as one of “The 35 Best New-ish Christmas Songs You Need To Add To Your Playlist This Year”, Micah Edwards is ranked among top Christmas classics by artists like Dolly Parton, Katy Perry, Liam Payne, Chicago, Taylor Swift, Jonas Brothers, Carrie Underwood, and several others.
The song has a festive style, and also a meaningful message. Edwards noticed how people get so stressed out during the holidays, from buying gifts, to scheduling parties and all of the other social pressures that come with the holiday season and wanted to create a song that reminds people to not get too overwhelmed with the demands this time of year often brings. “I urge my listeners to get back to basics, remember what’s important, and relax this December,” says Edwards. “Needless to say, this has been a stressful year for all of us, and the last thing we need is a stressful Christmas.”
The song starts right off with Edward’s smooth voice, quickly joined by a vintage style electric guitar. It’s got a jazzy pop groove, the vocals attaching to the music with a super cool style and flow. The beat drops and gives the song a funky danceable rhythm, it has an instantly catchy feeling that mixes a fun attitude into the sweet style of a classic holiday ballad. Edwards has remarkable vocal control, hitting all the right notes with soul and passion, lyrically reminding everyone what is important during this time of year and not to get too bogged down in the rest of the holiday noise. It’s a gentle and loving reminder the memories with your loved ones is what you should be focused on, especially during this particular year. The message is one very close to Micah’s heart. “Not only is it my Christmas mantra embodied in the song, but the creative production also had tons of Christmas spirit,” says Edwards, “It was really an all-hands-on-deck approach with my favorite musicians, creatives, and friends from Houston.”
We all tend to get lost in the details and stresses of making sure every decoration is perfect and everyone gets the best present, but the time together is what makes all of this worth it. Its an absolutely beautiful song that perfectly updates classic styles into a fresh and invigorating sound.
