Through hard work, perseverance and extreme focus, the Pennsylvania native has become one of the most successful independent artists on the music scene.

The tune is well on its way to become a seasonal staple and in 2015, was named by Dagens Nyheter (Sweden’s largest daily newspaper) one of the Top 25 Christmas songs of all-time. In addition, the song has been praised by Universal Music Group, Truckers News, Autostraddle Magazine and many other blogs and publications.
