“Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind” is a line by Valentine Davies, in the film “Miracle on 34th Street”. This new Christmas offering entitled “Don’t Need Nothing Else This Christmas” from Welsh multi-award winning singer/songwriter, Darren Parry will certainly put you in the Christmas spirit… just as much as this classic film! Darren has performed/shared the bill with house-hold names (e.g. Michael Ball, Bryn Terfel, Donny Osmond), toured the world performing and has accolades that include; 2004 UK Songwriting Contest winner (Pop) for “Reality” (judges included the Brit Panel of Brit Award fame), 2014 and 2016 USA Song Of The Year contest runner up for “So Into You” and “Promises” (judges included Phil Collins, Gwen Steffani, Don Henley, Lenny Kravitz and Alicia Keys). Darren also has awards from Billboard and Unisong, to name but a few!
The new Christmas single is a festive joy of a Pop track that includes the given sleigh bells, bells and talk of snow and Santa! However, this take on a Christmas song is done with intelligence and class and the melodic, sophisticated touch of an award winning songwriter. The theme of potentially being without the one you love at Christmas is brought to life with lush strings, some lovely Country-esque guitar, French horns and the dynamic 3 and a half octave vocal range of Darren’s gravel tinged, soulful voice. At one point, in the middle 8, Darren hits a top B flat note with ease (Pavarotti hits a top B in “Nessun Dorma”!). If Paul Carrack, Michael Bolton and Hall & Oates got together to make a Christmas song, it may sound something like this! The song was recorded at Shabbey Road Road Studios, South Wales, being produced by Darren and Al Steele.
