Skye Pixton Releases Holiday Single: Portland-based folk singer celebrates award with new single for the holidays

Portland - Skye Pixton will hold a concert comprised of original music and the release of her new holiday single, a unique arrangement of "Angels We Have Heard on High" on Saturday, December 20th at 8:30 p.m. at the White Eagle, located at 836 N Russell St in Portland. Cover charge at the door is $6. Pixton will be followed by the Christine Young Band and Steve Marie & Jackson Road.

Pixton recently won the Portland Songwriter Association's 'Best Song' in the category of Folk Music in their annual songwriting contest. Pixton will perform her winning single, "Away From You", among other artists at the PDX Songwriters' Showcase at the Buffalo Gap, located at 6835 SW Macadam Ave on December 2nd from 7-10 p.m. There is no cover charge. The Best Overall Song will also be announced at the Showcase.

The new holiday single is a rhythmic and fun arrangement of "Angels We Have Heard On High" with a creative and driving acoustic guitar accompaniment. The rendition originates with an arrangement by her brother and follows a family tradition of singing together and collaborating in music. Pixton's parents along with her six brothers and sisters, known fondly as "The [Von]-Pixton Family Singers", have long performed a capella performances during the holidays, at Doernbecher Children's Hospital and other charities. Most often seen playing an acoustic guitar and accompanied by backup vocalists, a bassist and light percussion, Pixton has an acoustic folk/rock sound that appeals to young and old alike. Her credits include three television appearances, multi-state radio play, the National Anthem at Portland Trail Blazers games, and various clubs among other venues.

"Away From You" and "Angels We Have Heard on High" are available to download in mp3 format at www.skyepixton.com. The holiday single will also be available at live performances and certain local retail outlets. For more information and schedule of performances, visit www.skyepixton.com.
