Like it or not, the holiday season is here! And while you may not be ready for eggnog and tinsel, the well-meaning winter spirit is certainly alive in Austin’s P.T. Banks. The local three-piece has shined over the years under the direction of fronting vocalist and guitarist Paul Banks – who now is releasing something just in time for the holidays.
Derived lyrically from a Civil War-era Henry Wadsworth Longfellow poem, “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” is a stripped down solo acoustic performance by Banks – one that was recorded years ago but is only now enjoying its release. Take a breather this Monday and soak in the yuletide vibes with a free download of “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” by P.T. Banks right here on KUTX.org.
