Song of the Day

Song of the Day: “Blue Christmas” by Marlon Chaplin and Sintja

Well it’s Christmas Eve and we here at Live in Limbo wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! To celebrate enjoy this Elvis cover by Toronto artists Marlon Chaplin and Sintja.

 “And when those blue snowflakes start falling/That’s when those blue memories start calling” – Marlon and Sintja’s rendition of the Christmas classic “Blue Christmas” is rich with emotionally charged, sultry harmonies and perfectly encapsulates the underlying heartbreak of a song about unrequited love and being alone at Christmas. “Blue Christmas” was written by Billy Hayes/Jay W. Johnson and performed by Elvis Presley.

Marlon has recorded the track as a demo to both celebrate the season and to thank fans and media for their support of his music over the past year which began with the release of his debut EP ‘Wanderer By Trade’ (May 22). As it is a demo, the song will be exclusively available for listening on Soundcloud and Youtube and will not be available for public purchase.

Sintja is the principle songwriter, front-woman and founder of THE NAIVE. Her debut EP, “Saw the Sun” will be released on January 25th, 2017.

Sintja has been playing alongside various Toronto acts as a multi-instrumentalist and back up vocalist, currently playing that role in Marlon Chaplin’s band. She started her own project THE NAIVE, where her music took the shape of jazz influenced pop. “Saw the Sun” is a medley of catchy upbeat hooks and mellow ballads.
