Award-winning singer/songwriter Katie Garibaldi releases her new album Home Sweet Christmas, a collection of holiday and faith themed songs featuring eleven original compositions and one rendition of a traditional classic. Home Sweet Christmas is now available on online retailers including www.katiegaribaldi.com, iTunes, Bandcamp, Google Play, CD Baby, and Spotify.
Katie Garibaldi is a San Francisco, CA based singer/songwriter and guitar player who has been releasing music independently for about half of her life thus far. Elmore Magazine describes Garibaldi's sound as, "sweet, smooth music that is equal parts old‐school pop princess and folk songstress." The songwriter has a characteristic musical style wherein her country‐tinged dreamy folk gives her a distinct sound—ethereal Americana with sparkling memorable melodies. But this prolific artist continues to stretch the boundaries of any genre's walls with the release of her new full-length album this holiday season, Home Sweet Christmas, a collection of original Christmas songs that embrace Garibaldi's operatic vocal prowess and soulful folky affection, but also songs that branch out into traditional country and even gospel atmosphere.
Home Sweet Christmas exclusively premiered on The Daily Country on November 30th, presenting the first listen of the album before its worldwide release. As told to The Daily Country, Garibaldi says, "I'm excited to have my own collection of Christmas songs to share now, and I hope Home Sweet Christmas is an album that people will be able to enjoy year round and keep the spirit of the holidays with them every month, not just December, that no matter when and where they listen to it, the songs give them a peaceful and joyful sense of coming home." Celebrated Christmas blog "Merry and Bright!" says, "Taken as a whole, the album has a very personal, intimate feel. Katie's expressive singing and guitar playing, coupled with the soul and spirit of songs, makes it feel as if you're right there in the room with Katie. Maybe at a house concert."
The melodic songwriter first began hinting about the Christmas album as a possibility with the release of her single, "Tomorrow is Christmas Morning," an original song about yearning to make it home in time for the magic of Christmas morning, which features a charming string section that has become a staple in Garibaldi's signature sound, in November of 2016. "Merry and Bright!" called "Tomorrow is Christmas Morning" a "very well-written and performed song" and said, "Katie has hinted that this is merely a preview for a full-length Christmas album coming in 2017. That's a Christmas wish that I hope comes true." Supporters of Garibaldi's music will not only be granted this wish with Home Sweet Christmas, but can expect some big surprises from the new Christmas release as well.
