Queer R&B artist Stephanie Gayle just released Christmas at 7222, Vol. 2, a five song EP with original songs written, performed, and produced by Gayle. The single “Gee Whiz, It’s Christmas” was written by Carla Thomas, Stephen Cropper, and Vincent Trauth, and produced by Stephanie Gayle.

Christmas at 7222, Vol. 2 is available on Bandcamp here.

Where Christmas at 7222, Vol. 1 focuses mostly on goodwill and good times with loved ones, Christmas at 7222, Vol. 2 reflects on the year we’ve had with COVID-19, protests over racial injustice, and the wave of obstacles we’ve had to either endure, or overcome, as a result.

From relationship strains, to mental health concerns, and the looming cloud of mortality – this latest EP invokes all those thoughts and feelings. Still, even through all the hardships and pain, the album still manages to leave space for hope, and ends on a high note. The moral of the album is this: storms don’t last forever – humanity will endure. Finding hope through it all is the hallmark of all holiday seasons.
