Billboard calls Martin Sexton, "a vocalist of amazing proficiency and sensual conviction." This rings true on Camp Holiday...Recorded entirely on a cabin in the Adirondack Mountains, you could almost smell the wood smoke as songs like 'Blue Christmas' fills the room.

Unencumbered by the distractions of big production, the simplicity allows this one-man band to shine like the brightest bulb on the tree. Sexton delivers classic, holiday favorites like playful, new tunes without compromising a thing. Camp Holiday is as charming as they come - the perfect holiday companion complete with quintessential festive ingredients. The warmth of a timeless class in "I'll Be Home for Christmas." The joy in a swinging "Holly Jolly." The tangibility of a family gathering in "Silent Night," and a timely message with a hair-raising acapella rendition of '"Let There Be Peace on Earth." A portion of the proceeds will go to Camp Sunshine for children with life-threatening illnesses.

Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Personnel: Martin Sexton (vocals, guitar, horns, drums); Briana, Thomas J. Sexton, Jr. (vocals); Crit Harmon (guitar).
Muze PNote The liner notes say this collection of Christmas songs was "unproduced by Martin Sexton and Crit Harmon," and that line goes a long way toward explaining its charm. While Martin Sexton has a well-earned reputation as a performer with energy and passion to spare, Camp Holiday is a loose and relaxed acoustic session that sounds like a friendly guitar pull taking place in your living room, with a few mugs of well-spiked egg nog within easy reach and even a few relatives on hand chiming in with backing vocals (most notably Sexton's dad, who pops up on two tracks). While the bluesy force of Sexton's voice is on full display here, especially on "O Christmas Tree" and "Blue Christmas," he makes a point of not overwhelming his material (all covers except for one new number, the sly and funky "Welcome to the Camp"), and there's a homey warmth and good humor to this album that speaks of the relaxed familiarity of a good Christmas get-together. Since this is the first release from Martin Sexton in three years, some fans may have had higher hopes for Camp Holiday than just a casual collection of yuletide favorites, but while this is a very low-key album, it's also the sort of Christmas album that is likely to appeal to even the cynical -- it's short on showy piety and sentimentality and long on simple good vibes, and will still be in rotation around your house long after Kenny G. and Mannheim Steamroller have worn out their welcome. ~ Mark Deming
