Fredericksburg, VA, Nov. 30, 2015—BQE Records, LC recording artist Dave Goodrich today announced the release of his new Christmas love song entitled Wrap Me in Your Christmas Love on major online music retailers starting on December 1, 2015. The song is a self-produced pop-rock production with 1960s Motown influences.
This single release marks Dave Goodrich’s first original Christmas song. Dave’s guitar playing on the recording is reminiscent of that of the 1980s group The Pretenders. Dave also provides rich lead vocals on top of lush backing vocal harmonies, Motown-like drums, fat bass and keyboard candy. Married with addicting melodies and musical hooks, the song’s catchy lyrics invite love in the holiday season.
Dave’s first solo recording as a singer/songwriter—the ten-song album 15 Minutes—has received over 100 placements on television shows. Additional solo recordings include the full album Stripped Away, a science-meets-psychology-inspired single called What’s the Dark Matter?, and this year’s soulful Valentine’s Day single release You Are There. In celebration of the 2014 Christmas season, Dave released a soothing electronic version of Silent Night. Dave was also a member/producer/songwriter of the 1980s DC-based power pop trio Mind’s i that released the EP A House Defiled (BBTB Records, LC), which spent a summer on the national college radio charts.
“’Tis the season to give and receive,” says the Washington-born musician and producer. “The stores are filled with Christmas toys for all the girls and all the boys, but the greatest gift of all is love.” Dave adds with a sparkle in his eyes, “A new guitar is always nice, too!”
You Are There Single Release
