Music Video for Maggie McClure & Shane Henry's 'When I'm Home' Available Now
Maggie McClure and Shane Henry have released a brand new music video for the holiday ballad "When I'm Home," a heartfelt song that focuses on the longing to be home with family during the holidays. The song can be found on the duo's festive five-track EP Happiest of Holidays, comprised of four original holiday songs and a cover performance of "Baby, It's Cold Outside." The EP is available digitally via iTunes or as a CD ($10 plus shipping) or a CD/Custom Christmas Ornament package ($20 plus shipping), available at http://www.maggiemcclure.com.
"'When I'm Home' is a very special song to Shane and me," said McClure. "The video of my early Christmas mornings incorporated into the music video brings back magical memories of an enchanted childhood my parents worked so hard to create for me. I look back on the times in the video, and all of the times spent with family around the holidays throughout our lives, with great thanks. It's always a time to remember with humble appreciation our great fortune at having a warm immediate family and an extended group of friends and supporters in our lives. The song comes from a special place in our hearts and we hope it touches yours."
Being great lovers of Christmas, and giving voice to their desire to add to the American Christmas songbook, Maggie McClure and Shane Henry began writing Christmas songs in 2012 and have performed a number of them at shows around the country including at Los Angeles' Hotel Café, the Oklahoma City Thunder Halftime Show and the Holiday Festival of Light in Oklahoma - designated as one of the top ten light displays in the nation. This week, they'll perform songs from Happiest of Holidays at the New York Knicks Holiday Halftime Show on Dec. 21 at Madison Square Garden and at NYC's Rockwood Music Hall on Dec. 22.
The EP's five tracks blend Maggie's clear, sweet tone and beautiful piano with Shane's soulful voice and powerful guitars to deliver a warm and life-affirming Christmas message, complete with sleigh bells and cascading harmonies. The title track, "Happiest of Holidays," brings upbeat holiday cheer alongside festive originals "First Thing On My Christmas List" and "Kiss for Christmas." The soulful ballad "When I'm Home" is destined to become a Christmas classic.
