It’s almost that time, and Conestogo, Ontario’s Carla Muller spreads evergreen cheer with the release of a double A-side single, “Christmas Eve” and “Christmas At Home,” both out now, ushering in the warmth of a much anticipated 2020 holiday season – and beyond.

Supporting what we all need right now, Carla fuses Americana/Roots vibes into the songs, and donating 50% of the proceeds to Food Banks Canada. She says, " If I go back far enough, I can remember past Christmases from my own younger days. I just have to close my eyes and I can picture my Mom in the kitchen, singing softly to herself, our old dog Cassidy barking his head off as the doorbell rings and scrabbling to greet friends. Boxing Day would bring carols, sung in a way that only family can, our voices blending as they rose and fell in harmony.
“It’s family, however you define it. I imagine next year, we’ll take the time to slow down and really enjoy the music, light and laughter of Christmas. When we can all be together again and hold one another close. How wonderful that will be!”
In a year of social distancing, Carla with a little help from her friends, completed live virtual recording to create modern contemporary holiday hits. Music has the power to transport us to another time and place. Carla loves to harness that power with a broad audience of fellow music lovers and passionate musicians alike. Ever since a young age, Carla has found great joy and satisfaction by being involved in the creative music process.
While the tracks were recorded quickly, they were drawn from years of Carla’s writings, a perfect symbolic of the past and present, the Yuletided extension of the wistful wonderland.
