Born and raised in Southern California, Damon Collins is a singing / songwriting worshiper who endeavors to bring glory to God through music. Adopting the worship song “I Give Myself Away” as his personal theme, Damon’s only musical aspiration is to be used by God and share the love of Jesus Christ.
Now Damon Collins presents “First Christmas” — a 4 song EP featuring re-imagined Christmas carol standards, like “Oh Holy Night” and “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”, plus a thoughtful and unique track, titled “The Charlie Brown Medley”, based on the classic cartoon special and a brand new original song, titled “It’s A Celebrate” — which brings the real celebration of Christmas back to the forefront. And right off the bat, you can sing along, dance along, and smile at the wonderful music on this Ep. In fact you’ll probably play it throughout the year, after all as someone said, “Christ is the reason for all the seasons!”
Damon Collins does a great job on this Christmas Ep; there isn’t a bad track in the lot! Damon’s voice is in excellent form and he never lets go of a superfluous note. We get a tight collection of rhythmic songs and ballads for Christmas, including a couple of traditional songs performed as only Damon can do them and that’s grand. In addition, the quality of the sound is excellent.
“Oh Holy Night” gets a fine treatment from Damon who makes this sound fresh and new—the subtle and gentle music fits in so well with his vocals! “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” has another great arrangement and will charm you with its underlying, bubbling rhythm and harmonious beauty. “It’s A Celebrate” is good, soul-induced R&B, and I really like the passionate “The Charlie Brown Medley” too.
