about

ABOUT THIS SONG:

'The Sound of Christmas.' Sleighbells et al... Brilliant fun.

A fabulous arrangement by Andrew Smith with his multi instrument playing virtuosity here in Kelowna, lovely piano playing by Eric Disero, Zach giving the perfect vibe for the drums and my boy providing the icing on the cake at the end of the song. What a privilege to bring a song like this to life.

I wrote it back in 2014 and every year Tiger, my son, has asked "When will it be ready Daddy?" Well it took emigrating to Kelowna, Canada in September this year to prompt its completion. Crazy... and yet somehow wonderful.

Enjoy, and have a great Christmas.

You can see the Short Film to accompany the song at my youtube site. Click on the link on right of the page. Have a great Christmas.

Love N

THE LYRICS:

IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN
Words and Music © 2016 Nicky Slater (Nicholas Mark Slater)

V1: The evenings are darker the winter winds so chill
Soon we’ll skate the pond outside
There’ll be snow upon the window sill
Those elves have been so busy since that special night a year ago
It’s time to put the tree up time to see the children’s faces glow oh

CH: It’s that time again hear that noise
Soon Santa’s on his way his sleigh filled with sparkling toys
Kings in line again, angels rejoice
And Santa’s bringing presents for those good little girls and boys
It’s that time again, it’s that time again

V2: Once my life was starker the winter boded ill
I was lost alone and searching for my destiny on life’s treadmill
Then I unwrapped my special present that starry night so clear
And now we put the tree up, together every year oh

CH:

BR:Then I remember those with less than me
In the deserts of a war zone a little boy sees a tragedy
A little girl close by here has not enough to eat
So I’m sending love and presents and
I pray one day they’ve all they need oh oh oh

CH: CH:

CODA: I've been good Daddy.
Santa's going to give me lots of presents......

about

NICKY SLATER Kelowna, British Columbia

Welcome

I have always been an Entertainer from my earliest days on ice.

Now I'm stepping up to add Singer-Songwriter to that Entertainer background whilst making Short Films and inventing new personas too.

My personas can speak of life from a different perspective and musical genre - great fun.

So thank you for joining me. It's great to have your support.

Anything is possible.

Love

Nicky
