Coventry Telegraph: Christmas Songs... 2 December, 2010
Christmas Songs That Are Real Festive Treats

As the chilly winter air descends and days begin to get unpleasantly short, it can only mean that Christmas is well on the way. To many the seasonal shop can be a nightmare, not just for the credit card meltdown and the hustle and bustle of the relentless crowds, but mainly on hearing that far too familiar Christmas song for the umpteenth time.

Well may I offer three songs that have local connections, and both hark back to the more traditional Christmas song, but for all the right reasons.

Re-Joyce from the Hazel O’Connor Collective has a strong message too, not just of Christmas, but of life, and the joy of living for each moment.

The gathered cast included, Hazel O’Connor, Toyah Willcox, Carol Decker, Pauline Black, Ranking Roger, Vince Hill, Neville Staple, Bob Brolly, The Subterraneans and The Bluja Project plus Moya Brennan, Kid Creole and Neil O’ Connor who weren’t present on the night but are on the recording expertly produced by The Grammy award winning Roger Lomas.

Re-Joyce: Released Monday 6th December 1 December, 2010
'Re-Joyce (In The Bleak Midwinter)' is released next Monday.

Here is a message from 'The Hazel O'Connor Collective' fundraising Christmas single Facebook group:

The Hazel O'Connor Collective's fundraising Christmas single is due to be released in 6 days. It is imperative that it is purchased between Monday 6th December and Sunday 12th December to give it the best chance of a chart entry by avoiding a clash with the X-Factor single which is due to be released the following week.

The 'Re-Joyce' single will be available to buy from most major record stores and download sites. On the release date (6th December) there will be an interview with Hazel O'Connor plus the first national television airing of 'Re-Joyce' on ITV1's 'Daybreak' at around 8am (subject to change) and also the single will be played on ITV's 'Central Tonight' (Midlands) between 6pm and 6.30pm on the same day.

Please show your generosity and support by purchasing a few copies if you are able. It is an excellent Christmas single as I'm sure those of you fortunate enough to have already heard it will agree, and for a most worthy cause. Proceeds from the single will be going to Myton Hospice in Coventry where Hazel's mum (Joyce) has received care and treatment for cancer.

• View further info on the release of 'Re-Joyce (In The Bleak Midwinter)', download info, and how to help the single chart at Facebook groups, here and here. It is absolutely crucial that the single is purchased (CD or digital download) between Monday 6th December and Sunday 12th

Coventry Telegraph: Time To 'Re-Joyce' In A Good Cause 21 October, 2010
A new article by the 'Coventry Telegraph' on the forthcoming Christmas single by The Hazel O'Connor Collective.

On Tuesday, November 16, The Hazel O’Connor Collective will launch ‘Re-Joyce’ a song that is a sure fire box ticker in every way.

It’s superbly poignant (and you can’t say that about many Christmas singles), celebrating as it does the gift of life. Proceeds from the sales will raise money for Coventry Myton Hospice, and to top it off, it’s packed to the rafters with top names.

Featured artists include: Hazel O’Connor, Toyah Willcox, Carol Decker, Pauline Black, Ranking Roger, Vince Hill, Moya Brennan, Neville Staple, Kid Creole, Bob Brolly, The Subterraneans and others. It’s produced by Grammy Award winning producer Roger Lomas.

I had the pleasure to be in the studio as it was being recorded, it’s one of those songs that doesn’t come around too often, superbly produced by Roger Lomas,

“All of the participating artists were an absolute joy to work with.” reveals Roger,”
