Christmas All Over Again: ELIZABETH CHAN

Depending on how you like your Christmas music, Elizabeth Chan may or may not be recording the greatest Christmas music you have never heard. I first wrote about Chan's music upon first hearing it back in 2013. At that time she had two digital EP's - Naughty & Nice and Everyday Holidays out:
She then released Christmas In The City in 2014 and followed it with Red & Green in 2015:

Last year, I included Elizabeth Chan's latest release Five Golden Rings in My Ladies of Christmas 2016 post along with albums by Jennifer Nettles, Jessy J, Kacey Musgraves, Lauren Daigle, and Sarah McLachlan. Five Golden Rings marked the first time Chan covered Christmas standards alongside her originals.
In 2017, for the sixth consecutive year, Chan issued a new Christmas collection, a six-song EP named for her daughter, Noelle. Songs For Noelle opens with a dance remix of "What Child Is This" and five originals follow, including an encore appearance by "Ghost Of Christmas Past" from Five Golden Rings. Elizabeth filmed a video for that song last year and I watched it for this post and all I can say is do not watch it - it is one of the saddest videos I have ever seen. Not that the song is a happy one itself - they just took the worst possible scenario to illustrate the sentiment of the lyrics. According to Elizabeth Chan, she has now written over 1000 Christmas songs and yet she has only released just over 50 of them, so we're gonna hear so much more from our girl Elizabeth. Too bad Christmas only comes once a year.
