The sixth day of November might feel a little early for Christmas music but I’m pretty sure you’ll forgive us this one. American singer songwriter Andrea von Kampen has created a lyrical masterpiece with her new track A Midwest Christmas.

We’ve shared Andrea’s music on York Calling before – Jane ran the rule over her song Julia back in 2018. At the time she compared her music to Laura Marling’s early work and Andrea’s music certainly has that vibe.
It was less her sound and more her lyrics that drew me in though. A Midwest Christmas is such a subtly expressive piece. Stunning imagery and vignettes painted a picture in my head. It’s not your usual Christmas imagery either. The track is thankfully cliche free.
