Today’s song is “Holiday Joint” by Mayyadda. The Minnesota-based artist is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer.
“Holiday Joint” is an original soulful R&B tune about resting as nature does in the wintertime. It is also the title track on her holiday album out now. The EP also features Christmas classics “Jingle Bells,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Sleigh Ride,” and “Silent Night.”
As someone who doesn’t tend to subscribe to the tradition of this season, Mayyadda explains her intention and inspiration behind her new holiday EP, saying “I wanted to create a holiday project that my Grinchy self actually enjoyed.”
With her delicate guitar accompaniment and unique vocal arrangements, the artist seeks to provide listeners with a fresh perspective on the traditional sounds of the season.
