A Festive Session: Lisa Redford – “I Believe In Father Christmas”

14 Dec

Lisa Redford1

On the off chance you were not aware, Christmas is nearly upon us and being only slightly Grinch like, we wanted to do something to get into the festive spirit. After the beautiful and charming session she did for us at Norwich Sound and Vision we thought there was no-one better to ask to sing a seasonal tune for us than the lovely Lisa Redford. Thankfully she agreed and if you scroll down you’ll find her gorgeous cover of the Greg Lake classic, “I Believe In Father Christmas”, filmed exclusively for us at House Coffee Shop in Norwich (lovely people, lovely food). Before that though, we sat down with Lisa to find out what her own Christmas plans looked like.

As an international jet-setter, she is understandably looking forward to relaxing and spending time with loved ones, ”Last year I was in the States and had quite an unusual Christmas, but this year I am back with my family in Norwich.

“It’s just nice to spend time with the family, and watch loads of movies basically, that’s what I like to do. Just watch one after the other because the days are so dark and long you can just lose yourself in a DVD”.

Not that the break will be nothing but films for Lisa, there will be work going on as well. ”I like this time of year for being creative.

“There’s less distraction, I find I kind of retreat in the Christmas week. Because there’s not really much going on so you can turn it all off and just concentrate on finishing up some songs and things like that really”.

Finally, anyone who wants to buy Lisa a Christmas present should know she isn’t averse to receiving ” the obvious; wine, Chocolates…”, though she has got her sights set on something a little more technological and big. ”Maybe some mic stuff, some good headphones things like that really. I suppose something like an iPad would be great”.

We hope she gets what she wants and look forward to hearing any new material she records over the break. Now though, sit back, relax and enjoy our exclusive session performance of “I Believe In Father Christmas” from Lisa Redford.

You can get a free download of a studio version of the track from Lisa’s SoundCloud page.

Lisa’s latest EP Reminders, recorded in New York City where she is now based, was released this summer and can be bought on iTunes or directly from her bandcamp page.

    The one time I spend Christmas in the states, it was spent by the pool and I’d love to go back but there is something to be said for just locking the world out and chilling in your slipper Uggs at this time of year.
    Lisa has got the right idea and this session is a great cover of one of my favourite Christmas songs…..
