I hope we'll be ok/This Christmas in LA

Matt Dorrien, the man with the voice that makes mountains crumble and curl up on a blankie. He treated us earlier to this seasonal song. And now, this:
I wrote and recorded this song less than a month ago upon moving to Los Angeles from Portland, OR, my home of the last eight years. My wife and I decided to relocate after discovering that my father, who lives with my mother just outside of LA, had been diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. It’s a song of comfort and hope during some pretty uncertain times. I hope it brings some semblance of peace to those feeling similarly lost and burdened by uncertainty as we approach the second holiday of this pandemic.
