BRYARD HUGGINS

RELEASED NOVEMBER 5, 2021

Bryard's debut holiday single, "Christmas Without You" debuted in November 2021 to roaring acclaim, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic put a slight hold on its release. We've all heard those Christmas songs with the same old message: "I need a partner on the holidays" or "the holidays won't be complete without a lover". Well, to heck with that. In 2018, Bryard had an idea to create an unconventional Christmas song, whose message is "you don't need anyone to be joyous on the holidays", rather than the usual trope. "Christmas Without You" is performed by Nashville artist and performer Gina Francesca, who provides all the sass, spunk, funk, and festiveness this song deserved. With its production inspired by Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and Kelly Clarkson's "Underneath The Tree", this new holiday hit has plenty more where that came from.
