GASON cd 717 - GOD JUL / HAPPY XMAS
HELÉN JOHANSSON

The funk queen of Anderstorp Helén Johansson goes soft and tindering presenting this Christmas album with some well-known Xmas songs in snow fresh versions, combined with totally new, moving, funny, earfriendly and sometimes surprizing songs by Helén Johansson - all in superb arrangements by the master Stefan Pettersson of Rougin Studios. This is a CD you will really enjoy working with Christmas preparations or just relaxing in the mist of baking flour and candle dripping... all in Swedish ;-)

THE CRITICS:

SvD: "(---) The singer-songwriter Helén Johansson has a light and smooth easygoing voice reminding of Flora Purim. On this Christmas CD she shows a more emotional face, singing X-mas songs and hymns in a somewhat less funky environment that on her earlier CDs. Her own songs give a charming, naïve view on Christmas. She sings about Santa┤s hard labour, in the song about Chocholate she is playing around with jazz moods. In the traditional songs we meet acoustic guitar and warmly sounding church bells. Her music has a both tastefull and beautiful span. "
