2023’s been a good year for Californian soul man JOE LEAVY (above) … a higher profile, a slew of hit singles and a chart topping, critically acclaimed album! Now at year end our Joe delivers a very special Christmas single. It’s a wonderfully, soulful, emotion-packed ‘One More Day’. One quick listen and you’ll be totally hooked. The sensuous sax intro mesmerises; then Mr L’s warm, velvet-infused old school soul vocal does the rest. And you know the really, really good thing about the song is that it’s free from hackneyed Christmas cliches. Thus, no jingle bells, no bobbing robins, no frosty snowmen, no winter wonderlands or roasting chestnuts; just Joe informing his significant other that he’s coming home for Christmas and all he wants from that person is just “one more day”. It’s deeply soulful and made the more poignant because it was inspired by the recent loss of four of Joe’s close family members.
For sure this ‘One More Day’ is a future Christmas soul classic with the potential to go all the way (much like Donny Hathaway’s ‘This Christmas’). You might also know that Joe isn’t just a master soul craftsman, he’s also a clever marketeer. So, this wonderful, unmissable ‘One More Day’ will only be available as a “gift” to everyone who purchases his acclaimed album, ‘Soul On Fire.’ Learn more @ https://joeleavy.com/ – you won’t be disappointed!
