Soul slinger BJ The Chicago Kid gave his fans an early Christmas gift. Created in just three days with producer Jairus Mozee and engineer Joe Syring, A Soulful Christmas is an instant holiday jam.

Gritty, funky, smooth and touching all at once, this EP happens to you. The music warms you up like a stiff drink in front of the fireplace and sends chills down your spine like the cold Chicago winds blowing just outside the door.

Romantic, spiritual, sexy, stirring, A Soulful Christmas is thorough, a throwback to the sounds of Stax and his own parent label, Motown, Christmas classics while maintaining a decidedly fresh and current vibe. There is something here for every emotion the holidays bring. Take a listen below.
