OH SUSANNA - DECEMBERLY
LABEL : STELLA RECORDS // RELEASE DATE : NOVEMBER 16, 2018


On Decemberly, Oh Susanna teams up with pianist and songwriter Michael Johnston to perform new and classic holiday songs. Inspired by the Christmas parties Michael and his partner Annie host each year where friends gather around the piano to sing, Oh Susanna and Michael decided to record a mini album of songs with just piano and vocals. This collection of songs and the intimacy of the recording pays homage to albums and artists such as A Charlie Brown Christmas by the Vince Guaraldi Trio, A Very She & Him Christmas, and Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong’s fun interplay.

“Every year I look forward to getting out the Christmas music from the 40s, 50s and 60s,” says Suzie Ungerleider (Oh Susanna). “One January, I didn’t want to stop listening to all this good music and decided to write a song called ‘After the Holidays’ inspired by all those great Jazz and Pop crooners. I recruited my dear friend, pianist and songwriter Michael Johnston to write the lyrics with me…full of double entendres and flirtation – I even made up a word ‘Decemberly’ to describe the magical feeling of the holiday time. This year I decided it was time for me and Michael to record a mini album of holiday songs including our original ‘After the Holidays’.”
