New Music: Anthony Lazaro - "A Minute to Midnight"

 Italian singer-songwriter Anthony Lazaro is gifting us with a new 5-song EP for this Christmas season.

"A Minute to Midnight" features the holiday standard "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm" and four originals songs, the title track "A Minute to Midnight", XMas is Here", "I Won't Be Here", and "Santa for Hire".

As a followup to his previous releases such as the EP "Basement Love" and album "The Guest List", "A Minute to Midnight" is smartly arranged and performed with energy.   There's a lot of uke, some great horns, and upbeat tempos, and a smidgen of Italian crooner style added into the mix.  Until, that is,  "Santa for Hire", which is a dreamy, surreal, unabashedly seductive song.  Lots of style is wrapped into Mr. Lazaro's EP.

Anthony has strong collaborations with Anna Elizabeth Laube on "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm" and R.V.A. on "XMas is Here.  Treat yourself to some original Christmas music this season with "A Minute to Midnight".
