With the holiday magic, the music fills the halls of businesses and throughout the shopping malls. However, probably one of this season’s best Christmas music releases would be that of Rhyan Sinclair of Lexington. “Marshmallow World” was released in November, much to the delight of those that enjoy traditional sounds of Christmas.
Overall, Rhyan Sinclair provides vocal talents that reminisce those of Brenda Lee when she started singing “Rocking Around the Christmas Tree.” Rhyan’s first single, “Santa How You Gettin’ In My House,” is a throwback country song style written about modern times as many don’t have a fire place for the jolly man in red to visit.
“I always enjoyed Christmas time with my family. I hope that this album reflects the magic and memories created,” according to Rhyan during a recent conversation.
Just to be turning 18 years old this month, Rhyan Sinclair showcases her strong songwriting talents with the song “Let the Light In (In the Name of Christmas).” The song reflects on the darker times we are currently facing in our world, but we should let the light of good shine in our lives. “I wanted to create a song to showcase that there can be peace in this world,” Sinclair said.
Other selections include “Winter Wonderland/Marshmallow World” and “What Christmas Means to Me.” The album concludes with her vocals soaring through the speakers on “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.”
Overall, Rhyan Sinclair is an excellent talent that should be on your radar if you love traditional country music with a touch of rockabilly and jazz influences. Currently, she is on tour in support of the album. Fans can check out more of her music at www.rhyansinclair.com and download her music online.
