“This Christmas, I’m Coming Home” is an upbeat piano pop song with a bouncy, jangly vibe and a touch of classic jazz swing, inspired by the kinds of cheery holiday tunes you would hear from Michael Buble, Serena Ryder, Meghan Smith or Sia.
"I wrote most of this song years ago and it kind of just sat there until last Christmas, at the height of the pandemic lockdown, when I realized that I really needed it and what it represents, and that everyone else could probably use it too," says Wes. "So I decided to create the best version of it that I could."
The song was produced and co-written with Ryan Stewart (Carly Rae Jepsen, Victoria Duffield) in a remote cross-Canada collaboration. During a time of isolation and turbulence, “This Christmas, I’m Coming Home” evokes the sentimental warmth of togetherness, comfort and tradition that the holiday season brings.
