It's been a great year for Ripple favorite, Neil Nathan.
First, Neil recently opened for one of his favorite singer/songwriters, Sam Roberts. Second, Neil's video for his folky cover of ELO's "Do Ya" (Californication Season 2 Soundtrack) was featured on Fuse On Demand, The Insider.com, and Magnet Magazine among others. You can see it here. The song also received extensive radioplay internationally, including XM/Sirius's The Coffehouse and CUIT across Canada.
Finally, Neil has ended the year on a strong note by releasing his folky lullaby cover of the Xmas classic, "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. "
Our holiday gift to you is a free download of the song, which you can get here.
Neil has also released a hilarious and darkly comic video for the song. It was directed by Zev Deans, whose recent Survivaball Yes Men video was featured in the NY Times and Huffington Post.
Neil is using the song/video to raise money for a charity started by the family of his lifelong friend who died in the WTC on 9/11.
The Fred Gabler Helping Hand Camp Fund sends underprivileged youth to summer camp.
If you enjoy the video, please help the cause by sharing it with anyone you think might also enjoy it and donate to the cause.
We are also giving you a free download of the song that Neil wrote for Fred after frantically searching for him in hospitals throughout NYC and realizing he was indeed gone. It's called Freddy's Song and was featured in the NY Post's Page Six.
