Tom Brusky


This sounds like a long lost country Christmas classic, but it ain't. It's an original, and written and recorded recently by producer/singer/songwriter Tom Bruskey, and he 'painstakingly engineered and mixed to reflect the distinct sonic characteristics' of country music in the early 1960s. He did that too for four other songs on his Christmas EP, representing the 40s, 70s, 90s and nowadays. Tom got help from several guest vocalists - his duet with Dawn Jones could've been recorded by George Jones & Tammy Wynette. If only.
About 'Santa, don't sneeze', Tom writes: "Inspired by the AM radio-optimized Bakersfield sound of the 1960s with a little Western swing (and accordion!) mixed in, this whimsical song is about a boy who is so determined to get a new bike for Christmas, he implores Santa Claus to stay healthy so that he doesn't risk missing his ever-important, annual sleigh ride."
