Local singer Jeannie Tanner, with the Jeannie Tanner Quartet, has released the new holiday song " Santa's in the Chimney ( I Think He Might Be Stuck )."
Tanner sings and plays trumpet on this original Christmas song that she composed that features her quartet: Lisa McQueen on piano, Cory Biggerstaff on bass, and Darren Scorza on drums. This upbeat New Orleans-style track was mixed, mastered and produced by Darren Scorza at his Mather Point Studios.
The song can be downloaded for $1.29 at store.cdbaby.com/cd/jeannietanner14. In addition, Tanner has recorded two full-length albums of songs of the season that include more of her original songs and Christmas favorites: Joyful Season and A Little Bit of Christmas ( both available on CD Baby, I-tunes, Amazon and other digital outlets ).
