Jessie Baylin checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@jessiebaylin) on Monday (December 8), discussing her visit to the UK and her new song ‘That’s What I Want For Christmas’. The Los Angeles based folk pop singer songwriter tells readers:
I’ve been invisible for the past few weeks, decompressing from two months on the road – looking in, figuring lots out, eating yummy things, and traveling through the UK. Yesterday I was in Scotland, and I walked along the sea collecting shells. It was freezing, but so beautiful. I tried to play golf at St. Andrews (the 1st golf course in the WORLD) but it was just too damn cold. So instead, I bought gifts for family in the clubhouse and had delicious lentil soup :-) I am VERY impressed with the soups in the UK. I’m a huge fan of soup.
I wanted to let you know that I have recorded a Christmas song! It is up on my player, and it is available for download on iTunes!! I am really excited about this track. It is one of my favorite classic Christmas songs, and I hope that you will love my rendition of it, and that it will keep you and your family company during this holiday season and the many holiday seasons to come… Joe Pisapia from Guster produced the track and lent much of his magical skills – so give it a listen, and as always – please spread the word.
