Michigander Releases Holiday Single “Snow In Montana”
“We wrote this song to sort of encompass the lesser talked about feelings that are associated with the holidays,” shares Singer. “Most holiday songs tend to be pretty happy and uplifting, but ‘Snow In Montana’ touches on the moments that can be a little sad or uncomfortable. To help me write the song, I enlisted some of my best pals. It was the first time we’ve all been in a room at the same time to work on one singular song. I was pretty nervous about how it would turn out, but I’m blown away with what we created. As I’m getting older, the holidays feel different. I think they’ve lost some of their magic. But at the same time, I still feel like it’s the most magical time of the year. Now that I live a few states away from my family, they seem extra special. It’s nice to slow down.”
