Fresh Tracks — Visit the MusicNL website for more information and click the Arts tab at to hear our featured track — Sherry Ryan’s “I’ll Come First This Christmas.”
“I’ll Come First This Christmas is described as “a fun, upbeat duet about Christmas parties and break-ups in St. John’s.  Written by Sherry Ryan, arranged by Mark Bragg, and performed by Ryan and Mick Davis of The Novaks, this song “has a classic feel — complete with horns, sleigh bells and catchy key changes.”  that takes you straight to the heart of Christmas in St. John’s. Sherry has earned nation-wide attention releasing heart-stealing originals across each album since 2005.  Drifting between country, blues and soul, Ryan beautifully marries these genres with a voice “so good — so distinct — it’s absolutely unforgettable” (exclaim!) — Submitted photo
