Jonathan Butler fans can look forward to a special holiday treat. The two-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter-guitarist is releasing his first Christmas album entitled Merry Christmas To You on October 1, 2013 via Artistry Music. Butler produced and arranged the album which includes eight Christmas classics and two new songs written by the native South African peformer. The newly penned tunes include the title track "Merry Christmas To You," a retro-flavored R&B/adult contemporary ballad and "Happy Holidays," featuring an "ardent urban groove ornamented with riffs of cool jazz guitar." Jonathan is joined by Dave Koz, Rick Braun and Paul "Shilts" Weimer on a couple of tracks, along with his daughter, vocalist Jodie Butler. Beginning November 30, Jonathan will be performing with the Dave Koz & Friends Christmas Tour, featuring fellow guests keyboardist Keiko Matsui and vocalist Oleta Adams.
