GFM Fam this really is the time of year to stuff the stockings with great music or to supplement your holiday collection with new music for those great dinner parties or tastings that will be occurring in the weeks to come.

Today, we have a great selection from a GFM Fave: Tracy Cruz. Tracy and her husband Allen Ross created their own version of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” back in 2004. They are offering it as a free download via Tracy’s Bandcamp page and you can also listen below. Also, don’t forget to check out Tracy’s latest project Universoul Symphony and if you haven’t read the wonderful interview she did with us back in September head on over to the archive here.
