Giving us an early Christmas gift with her latest single is rising newcomer Willa Amai with “December”. Led by melodic piano keys, the singer is getting us in the festive vibe as her delicate vocals glide over the acoustic production for a heart-warming feel. The LA-hailed singer sweetly expresses the battles that come with the festive period, opening up on being alone and finding peace during a difficult time.
Speaking on the release, the singer said, “’December’ is a Christmas song with a melancholy mood that battles with the acceptance of loneliness and remembrance in a time of joy and love. It’s about learning to be okay with yourself and with being alone, and finding happiness in who you already are. In this acoustic version, the emotions become more complex; the sad is deeper engrained, and the happy is coloured with melancholy.”
Having been picked up at just 14 by legend Linda Perry, the 16-year-old singer has gone to work with icons in the industry such as Dolly Parton and Brandi Carlile. With more music hopefully on the way, Willa is set to have an incredible 2021.
