Kelly Finnigan: “To Be Young At Christmas”

By: Jack Anderson

When it comes to the Christmas genre, ’60s soul is a clear standout. But you can’t make new ’60s soul…right? L.A.’s Kelly Finnigan begs to differ and given his track record for vintage production with his group Monophonics, we’re inclined to keep listening.

Just for the holidays Finnigan stretched out in front of that proverbial open fire to roast eleven songs on A Joyful Sound, shared universally last Friday. It’s got all the flavors of classic R&B-soul you’d expect from Finnigan’s twinkling keys, seductive vocals, and captivating production, not to mention a rejuvenating take on the Christmas style with slow burners like “To Be Young At Christmas”!
