Rosedale Junction - Sleigh Bell Blues

Rosedale Junction’s new holiday single, Sleigh Bell Blues, dropped Friday November 26, 2021. The Delta blues inspired acoustic number is one man’s dark sad rambling ode of what Christmas is all about. Written by Toby Soriero (Guitar, resonator, bass, drums, washboard and sleigh bells),
the song features vocals by Dgiovahni Denizevahni (Solo artist), piano by Roger Smith (Tower of Power) and harmonica by Trent Williamson (Solo artist).

 

The band again teamed up with animator Scuba Steve, the creative force behind The Blizzard of ’73 video from their debut album, Stompin’ on the Front Porch, to produce an Official Visualizer which also premiered on Friday Nov. 26, on the band’s official YouTube channel.
