Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony have been putting in serious work. They are writers, producers, independent label owners and artists in their own right, performing as the duo Louis York. As if that’s not enough, Kelly and Harmony co-host the critically acclaimed We Sound Crazy podcast and radio show with Tamone Bacon and Phil Thorton. As they complete work on their next album Songs With Friends, they end the year with a new holiday song featuring their friend Tamar Braxton. In a special collaboration presented by We Sound Crazy, Braxton sings from the heart on “You Bring The Love.”
The yuletide ballad written and produced by Louis York is simply about love. Tamar expresses her deep-felt gratitude for a love that is pure, unconditional and always right on time at Christmastime.
“God knows this time of year can be so hard / Especially when life ain’t been no crystal stair,” she muses on the first verse. “I try to hide away, but I don’t get far / Cause you’re right there to catch every tear / When it falls / More than Santa or Rudolph or snow / You’ve been there / Through it all,” she emphatically exclaims about the one who always has her back and is by her side.
Tamar acknowledges that with Christmas comes tales of magical reindeer, animated snowmen and jolly old St. Nick and his sleigh filled with presents. However, she doesn’t need all that. It’s the love and hope that her reason for the season brings that makes her holidays perfect.
She rejoices on the chorus. “You bring the love back to Christmas / And I don’t know how you do it / You’ve got me smiling in holiday pictures / You really pulled me through it,” Tamar sings to her love who’s a true blessing.
“You Bring The Love” is a first-of-its-kind collaboration and the first time original music has been created and distributed via a podcast. Ever the innovators and imagineers, Louis York and the We Sound Crazy crew have raised the bar for podcasts and promise more original new music to come on future episodes this season.
We are eager to hear more Louis York collabs – whether they’re done with We Sound Crazy or on their forthcoming album Songs With Friends, which already boasts guest artists Jessie J (“Heaven Bound”) and Anthony Hamilton (“Alone A Lot”). That said, we would not be mad if they did another song or five with our girl Tamar. This is a winning musical combination if there ever was one.
Listen to the innovative squad’s inspirational single featuring Tamar Braxton below. “You Bring The Love” is available on all digital streaming outlets, and We Sound Crazy can be found on all major podcast platforms and heard on SiriusXM Channel 141 and Atlanta’s Peachtree TV.- Advertisement -
