The Essential Advent Calendar: December 5 – Gary Driscoll Releases Feel Good Christmas Tune, ‘Fly Home for Christmas’

UK singer Gary Driscoll released his latest single, ‘Fly Home For Christmas’ on December 4, just in time for the festive season.

A feel good track, the single is the newest song from the London artist, who’s been in the entertainment industry for 26 years. More than just a singer, he’s also featured in two true crime films: ‘The Wee Man’, and ‘Rise Of The Foot Soldier 3’. Being elected to perform in these films gave him the incentive to now produce his own music.

Gary’s smooth soul sound is inspired by the huge voices of the likes of Frank Sinatra, and Matt Monro, and ‘Fly Home For Christmas’ is filled with the joy of Christmas. Written by Gary’s companion and songwriter, Mark Leen, the lyrics speak about being together with our loved ones at this special time of year.

Gary’s hope is that his single will bring some love and music into people’s homes this Christmas.

‘Fly Home For Christmas’ is available to stream and download now. You can find Gary Driscoll online on SoundCloud, Spotify, and Facebook.
