Nicki Wells Delivers Stunning Ballad, ‘A Little Christmas Of My Own.’

As we enter the season of goodwill, most of us look forward to spending time with love-ones and perhaps catching up with friends we haven’t seen for some time. British singer-songwriter NICKI WELLS reminds us that festive times aren’t a celebration full of family and friends for some in her new self-penned single, ‘A Little Christmas of My Own’.

Much like her recently released single ‘Carry On’, Nicki Wells’ takes to the piano on which she first learned to play as a child to add a rich and inviting timbre to this steadily paced acoustic number.

Nicki explains the inspiration behind the new single: “It’s a bittersweet song about Christmas because for some, it can be a lonely time, not everyone has a family to go to. But by the end there is a sweet acceptance of a quiet and calm Christmas.”

In keeping with the intimate sound of this single, the accompanying video was created by Tarq Bowen and presents a beautiful and cozy visual.

‘A Little Christmas of My Own’ was released last Friday (2nd December). Watch the video for the single below…
