Get ready to add this heartwarming song to your holiday playlist!
Dayton-based award-winning band Ludlow Creek has gone global with many of their recent releases, including their latest album, “Which Way is Forward.” Known for transcending boundaries and creating a unique musical experience with every song, Ludlow Creek has announced they will be releasing their first original Christmas single, “This Baby Boy.” Having been shelved for many years, the song will now see the light of day in time for Christmas.
The mid tempo Christmas ballad offers depth to the groups impressive roster of songs. Full of bold instrumentation and stunning melodies, the band pays tribute to the real reason for the season. A true modern rendition of a worldwide timeless story.
Band member Jeffrey Friend tells how the single “This Baby Boy” came together, while almost tearing the band apart: “I wrote and recorded ‘This Baby Boy’ just before Christmas 2014, with Dave and Michelle singing harmonies. Michelle fell in love with it. Every Christmas after, Michelle would play it and talk about how the world needed to hear it, too. As we worked through 2022, we planned some rehearsals for the song. After the first rehearsal, I fired off an email that should have been a real-life conversation, and it blew everything up. Things got worse. We felt like Ludlow Creek was doomed.”
He further added, “After a week of ugly emails, we finally all sat in one room filled with loving tears, and forgiveness. This is where life, love, and hope happen; together, in an ordinary place. It wasn’t long before Michelle brought us back around to ‘This Baby Boy’. We rehearsed, recorded, mixed, and mastered the song in a few short weeks.”
The sentiment behind the song and the story of how it came to be truly offers up some holiday magic!
