The comparisons to The Swell Season, The Civil Wars, and, perhaps Damien Rice are sure to come as the recent single “In the Winter” by Irish singer-songwriter Tommy Cullen continues to find more ears and warms more souls. Featuring harmonies with the incomparable Amy Ellen, this is a soft as a first snow love song. Delicate and full of the impassioned romantic innocence of a burgeoning love story.

‘Cause I don’t know you
And you don’t know me
But we can celebrate
Loving in the winter
Yeah I don’t know you
But we can celebrate
All that we can do
All we can do

Say it goes down easy
Say it goes down slow
Well love changes everything
You got the sweetest something
Smiling down so wonderful
And I don’t want to run

The subtle urgency is all the power in the beautifully written track. Both picturesque and gripping, it makes you wish for an entire collaborative album by this duo. Time will tell, but until something as magical as this notion could come to fruition, you can stream the song that will anchor your by-a-winter’s-fire playlists for the cold season ahead.

Recording my first collaborative release during the loneliest of lockdown times was a challenge, but it was such a pleasure hearing what Amy brought to the table. I daresay her harmonies are worth the free price of free admission alone!” – T. Cullen, Facebook post, 4-10-2021
