Just in time for the holidays, Songs From the Road Band announces the release of an original Christmas song. “Green Garland” is the second single to release ahead of the band’s 7th studio album.
Written by Songs From the Road Band bassist Charles R Humphrey III, along with Charlie Chamberlain and Brew Davis, “Green Garland” takes the listener on a stroll down memory lane, revisiting holidays past. Mark Schimick delivers a heartfelt lead vocal while Sam Wharton and James
Schlender provide rich harmonies. The tune evokes the emotions of love and joy that occur when family and loved ones travel from far and near to be together for the holidays. Gabe Epstein tastefully decorates the song with his banjo while Humphrey’s tasteful bass work puts a bow on the performance. “Green Garland” is highlighted by a beautiful solo from two-time National Fiddle Champion, James Schlender.
Songs From the Road Band recorded “Green Garland” at Echo Mountain Recording in Asheville. The band is happy to share this new original tune with you, and hopes it finds a spot on your holiday playlist for years to come.
“Green Garland” releases for streaming on Friday, November 17, 2023. For an advance listen, check out this private SoundCloud link.
