about

When Paula Kelley first decided that her band Boy Wonder was reaching the end of its run, the first song she recorded as a solo artist was this conflicted little holiday gem. Assisted by a who's-who of the 90s Boston music scene, Paula crafted a singular take on the Christmas song, as only she could have.
