After penning an unexpected Christmas song during a trip to New York City, Irish singer-songwriter JANET DEVLIN has announced a November 27th release date for her first-ever Holiday EP, DECEMBER DAZE via OK! Good Records. The five-track EP will feature a pair of originals ("December Daze", "Happy Holidays"), two traditional Christmas numbers ("Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas""Silent Night") and a cover of Joni Mitchell's "River."  Pre-orders are up now on PledgeMusic.

Brian Setzer is one of my favorite guitarists and performers of all-time, his extensive discography well-worn here at Rock Father HQ. Of his many projects, THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA has long-been a favorite, and with my penchant for holiday music also deep-rooted, their Christmas albums and occasional tours have also been a big deal. It was recently announced that The BSO would release their first studio Christmas album in a decade on October 16th (via Surfdog Records), with ROCKIN' RUDOLPH currently up for pre-order via PledgeMusic. Now comes word that the band is hitting the road, and their 12th Annual CHRISTMAS ROCKS! Tour is hitting 31 cities this Holiday Season!

There's been some late entries into the new Holiday music playlist for 2014 (see some top picks here), and one of the freshest tracks comes from the ever-busy MISTA COOKIE JAR & THE CHOCOLATE CHIPS. "Got the Spirit" is the third in their "song-a-month" series, and one that spreads a little seasonal cheer for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and more. Stream it below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

This season, AEROSMITH guitarist JOE PERRY is cranking out the Holiday jams with the release of JOE PERRY'S MERRY CHRISTMAS, a four-song EP featuring rocked-up versions of “White Christmas,” “Silent Night,” “Santa Claus Is Back In Town” and “Run Run Rudolph" (featuring JOHNNY DEPP on rhythm guitar). Earlier today, Billboard debuted the video for Perry's cover of the latter song, a fresh take on Chuck Berry's classic. See it below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

For the past few years, I've been noting that Holiday music new releases have been getting smaller in number. While this year has seen a little uptick, things still aren't where they used to be, and on the non-Christmas side of the holiday season, new music is practically non-existent. Stepping in with a new Hanukkah offering this year is LISA LOEB, who along with RENEE STAHL has delivered a little bit of "Light." Listen below...

Well, here we are again - just a week out from Thanksgiving (or X-mas rehearsal), Black Friday and all of the Holiday fun that will follow. It's that time of year to hit the road for those gatherings - the ones where you reconnect with beloved friends and family... and the occasional oddballs that you only see once or twice a year - the ones with personality traits straight out of a movie or sitcom. While the destination may vary, getting there should always be comfortable, and one way to do that is with car organization products from Walmart, like the Rubbermaid Mobile Backseat Organizer. I've got two of them here at Rock Father HQ, and they're perfect for keeping my girls' goodies organized for wherever we may roam.
