2017 is bound to have a cheery end to it with its holiday season. Some top names have released albums this year and now that Thanksgiving is officially over I guess we can take ourselves off “Private Session” on Spotify and be proud of our music selections. We’ve all been sneaking a listen here and there. Gwen Stefani, Sia, Mariah Carey, and 98 Degrees have all released Holiday albums this year.

All worth checking out, but I highly recommend listening to Lindsey Sterling’s Holiday album “Warmer in Winter.” This renowned violinist puts a quirky, blues-rock twist on holiday classics. These aren’t your typical holiday tunes you’re used to. “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” was an instant favorite for me.
