CMC OZ ARTIST OF THE YEAR, JASMINE RAE TO RELEASE A SPECIAL CHRISTMAS EP - SANTA’S LITTLE HELPER

 

** Click Here To See A Release Sneak Peak! **

Singer/songwriter Jasmine Rae has been, without doubt, one of Australian Country Music’s most successful new artists in the last couple of years.  She scored ARIA Award nominations for both of her first two albums, Look It Up and Listen Here, as well as being voted 2012 CMC Oz Artist of the Year by Australian Country Music fans.

Jasmine Rae is a two-time Female Artist of the Year nominee at the Country Music Awards of Australia (Golden Guitars), has recorded a duet with US country star Joe Nichols, toured with the likes of Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn and Lee Kernaghan, performed for Australian troops in East Timor and has over one million Youtube views.  Listen Here topped the Australian Country Music Artists Sales Chart as well as being a multi-week ARIA mainstream Top 40 album. 

Santa’s Little Helper, a special five-track Christmas EP from Jasmine Rae, features two original songs, ‘Santa Man’ and ‘Really Christmas’- both co-penned by Jasmine Rae, the classic ‘The Christmas Song’ and festive favorites ‘Christmas Alphabet’ and ‘Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer.’ It’s released through ABC Music/Universal Music Australia on November 16.

The physical CD version of Santa’s Little Helper will be available exclusively through ABC Shops & Retail for only $4.99, making it the perfect stocking filler and Kris Kringle gift option this Christmas!

Santa’s Little Helper will also be released digitally, retailing on iTunes for the same price and is now available for Pre-order. Visit www.jasminerae.com.au for more details. 

Jasmine’s desire to record Christmas songs for her fans stems from a lifelong family passion for Christmas celebration…

“Growing up, we kept our Christmas CD's in the same box as our Christmas tree for 11 months of the year.  So when December came around, it was a really special experience for my brother and me to unpack the CD's and put them on as we all decorated the house. We'd have at least two sets of lights on our tree, Christmas decorations that had been handed down through the generations, home- made bobbles and tinsel galore!! It was, and still is, a really magical time at our place,” says Jasmine Rae

Produced locally by Michael Carpenter, Santa’s Little Helper sees Jasmine Rae deliver Christmas tracks with a Country/Blues flavor and a touch of Big Band!

‘Santa Man’ will be serviced to media on November 12.

The announcement of this special Christmas release coincides with the news that Jasmine Rae will appear as a special guest at US artist Craig Campbell’s show at the Tamworth Entertainment and Recreational Centre on January 19 – also featuring the ARIA nominated McAlister Kemp. This will be Jasmine Rae’s only Tamworth festival show. Tickets for that show are now on sale at:   http://tcmf.com.au/Tickets/

Jasmine Rae’s Santa’s Little Helper EP is released on November 16 through ABC Music/Universal Music Australia – Exclusive to ABC Shops & Retail & Digital Retail.
