TOP 5 Holiday Music by Cammie Gilbert, Sylvaine, Vermilia, Mizuho Lin, Danielle Evans
Music is a special thing, as it most often relaxes and helps you cope with everyday life. A certain song makes the memories come back and you remember the moment you heard it for the first time. It makes you travel far away, live in the moment, think about the future, It gives energy, this year more with jogging than with gigs.
This year has been particularly exceptional in many ways, but the holidays remain and people spend them differently. Often certain songs belong to certain moments and different styles of music make people relax in different ways.
We contacted five artists to ask about their top 5 recommendations for holiday music. What kind of music is included in their holidays or what they have liked to listen to lately.
It’s also great to always find new music. That moment, that feeling when you find something new where you get shivers.
If you haven’t heard our featured artists yet, I recommend you to check out their versatile taste of music, but also the art they create, because you might find something new for your holidays.

Polish black metal project Batushka was founded and created by guitarist and songwriter Krzysztof Drabikowski back in 2015. They caught the attention of metalheads and press alike with their successful debut release ‘Litourgiya’ and even went on to sign with popular label Metal Blade Records. The project also featured vocalist Bartłomiej “Bart” Krysiuk and drummer Marcin Bielemuk, to accompany Krzysztof however that is no longer the case as in December 2018 a shocking video was released from Krzysztof Drabikowski informing everyone that former vocalist Krysiuk had gone behind the creators back and essentially stolen his own band from him as Krzysztof had parted ways with the vocalist but Krysiuk turned the story around on Krzysztof instead. Currently, there are two sides claiming to be Batushka but there is only one true Batushka and we were lucky enough to speak to the real founder Krzysztof Drabikowski to get the full details of this unbelievable and shocking deceptive story and get the truth out there…

Waiting For Eternity is a Rock Band from Tennessee. Members include Shane Grubb (Lead Vocals, Guitars), Tony Cook (Bass, Guitars), Nathan Salas (Lead Guitar), Matthew Wineinger (Drums).
We want to create music to share our story – the story that everyone shares some part of – getting through hard times, learning who we are (or are not), finding the strength to push on, growing stronger from hard times, learning that you are never truly alone and ultimately, to encourage and lead others to the truth that there is HOPE and something better to be found on the other side of struggle, frustration, defeat, failure, pain and loss.
We want our listeners to know that we are with them in this journey that continues everyday of all of our lives.
