Christmas music has its peaks and valleys. Sometimes you get the peaks of phenomenal covers and alternative versions and other times you get the plateaus of a bad Mariah Carey performance. This Christmas, Amazon Music has teamed up with some scene friendly artists to create a compilation of alternative Christmas music (think the O.C.'s Chrismukkah playlist with a dash less Seth Cohen).
Seattle based singer-songwriter Shelby Earl’s rendition of "We The Kings" is a fresh alternative to "All I Want For Christmas". Bluesy, dark, and definitely not the version you grew up listening to, Earl does the song the ultimate justice by adapting it to a more contemporary sound.
