‘Home This Year’, due for release on 18th December, is the new Christmas EP by UK singer-songwriter Frankie Davies.
“Christmas this year is going to be a challenge for many families across the world. Writing this collection of songs was a way of looking back fondly on my family traditions, but also coming to terms with the fact that I may not get to share Christmas with them. I hope they can act as a comfort to the listener but also a reflection of the sadness that not being with loved ones can bring.”
Frankie goes on to explain: “The songs ‘Home This Year’ and ‘Something About Christmas’ are about my family’s celebrations, whereas ‘All I Need For Christmas’ is more of a love song, recognition that all I really need is my husband by my side. ‘Forgive Me’ is an apology for not making it home, and finally ‘This Is The Year’ ends the EP on an optimistic note – New Year’s Resolutions come from a place of positivity, and taking that positivity and running with it is the key.”
Frankie has been continually championed by Bob Harris with a plethora of BBC Radio 2 plays, and has performed at Nashville’s Americana Music Festival and CMA Festival, as well as appearing at the UK’s biggest country event C2C. She has shared stages with some of the biggest names in country music, including Chris Young, Maddie & Tae, Lissie and The Shires.
