On November 12th, 5X Blues Music Award winner and GRAMMY nominee Christone “Kingfish” Ingram premiered his first ever holiday song, “Ghost From Christmas Past.”
The recording was officially released on Friday, November 13, and available on all popular streaming and download services.
“Ghost From Christmas Past” tells a timeless tale of love gone wrong. The song features Kingfish playing some of the most emotionally blistering guitar he has yet recorded, and singing with pleading, soulful urgency. “Ghost From Christmas Past” was written by Tom Hambridge and Richard Fleming, and was recorded in Nashville at famed Ocean Way Studio.
Since the release of his Alligator debut Kingfish, the 21-year-old musician has earned mountains of praise from press, radio and fans alike. In addition to his Grammy nomination, he won five 2020 Blues Music Awards, including Album Of The Year, Best Guitarist and Best Emerging Artist. He also won four Living Blues Awards and two Blues Blast Awards. When not headlining his own tours, Ingram has performed with Buddy Guy, Vampire Weekend and Jason Isbell to name a few.
I’ve always loved the holiday season. Obviously, this year will be a bit different considering what we all have had to manage. But, I’m hoping my first holiday song can bring people a bit of cheer as we kick off the holidays. – Kingfish
