Broadway/film actress, Top 20 Holiday Radio singer, and award-winning composer CHARLEENE CLOSSHEY spreads evergreen cheer with the release of holiday film soundtrack An Evergreen Christmas: Music from the Motion Picture ushering in the warmth of a much anticipated 2020 holiday season. In addition to composing its score, Charleene stars in the film with Academy Award nominee Robert Loggia, country music legend Naomi Judd, Tyler Ritter, and Greer Grammer.
Supporting the film’s big city/small town themes, Charleene fuses Americana/Roots vibes with Electronic sounds into the album’s twenty tracks. She says, “This was the first feature film I scored and hesitated to release [the album] until countless fans requested the movie’s music. This year of all years seems like a perfect time. We’re all looking for familiar comforts, acceptance, and an ‘evergreen’ warmth. I’m excited to share with our friends and fans these familiar songs, some of which we re-recorded for an extra special experience. The holidays really do breathe new life into us all.”
Additional soundtrack songs include “Apple of Your Eye” (featuring actor Brantley Pollock who plays Charleene’s on-screen brother), “Silent Night” and “O Christmas Tree” both by the film’s cinematographer Jeff M. Osborne.
The film An Evergreen Christmas is rated PG and available worldwide on Amazon, Apple, Tubi, and Roku.
An Evergreen Christmas: Music from the Motion Picture is available digitally on all music streaming platforms and physically on the artist’s website December 4. Singles and Instant Gratification tracks release beginning November 13.
