Past song of the week / December 2015

JP Hoe
"Dead of the Dark"

From the album Hoe Hoe Hoe Holiday Songs

Featured track, available from December 10 to December 18

It's beginning to sound a lot like Christmas... JP Hoe is decking the hall at the Burton Cummings Theatre for one of Winnipeg's favourite holiday traditions, the annual Hoe Hoe Hoe Holiday Show. Presented with the Winnipeg Folk Festival, Hoe will no doubt share some festive surprises at the December 11 event, along with plenty of special guests. Hoe has had a busy year, with the launch of his accalimed album Hideaway on MapleMusic, and a tour schedule that's taken him across the country and across the pond to Europe, including showstopper sets at Germany's Reeperbahn Festival, massive music fests SXSW and NXNE, and more. To celebrate the season, Hoe's original Christmas song, "Dead of the Dark" off his Hoe Hoe Hoe Holiday Songs EP, is our featured song this week. Unwrap if for yourself, stream more holiday tunes by local artists, and do not miss JP Hoe's holiday extravaganza.
