Gavin James - Winter Songs (EP)

Irish singer-songwriter Gavin James brings you a six-track stripped back EP of Christmas classics ready for the festive season.

On 'Winter Songs' the classic 'Fairytale of New York' becomes a stripped-back guitar led emotional ballad even if it's strange hearing the famous curses sung acoustically. Elsewhere we get well produced versions of 'The Christmas Song', 'River', 'Have Youtself A Merry Little Christmas' and 'White Christmas', with the mood ramped up for the final cover, an energetic rendition of 'Driving Home for Christmas'.

It may be an EP that's pretty similar until the final number but it's well sung, nicely produced and atmospheric. (7/10)
