Mark Feehily – Christmas (Review By Lucy Mapstone)

In a market over-saturated with Christmas cover albums, is there room for another one? Don’t be a Scrooge, of course there is. This time it’s the turn of ex-Westlife star Mark Feehily and, while he’s no Buble (who is undeniably the musical version of mulled wine and snowflakes and jolly good cheer), there’s something enriching and enchanting about the Irish singer’s new spin on the most beloved festive tunes.

Feehily has done away with the hackneyed sleigh bells and other saccharine, yuletide-friendly elements in his tracks and this, combined with his genuinely magnificent singing voice, means his songs are less cliched than most Christmas covers tend to be.

Think bluesy, jazzy ballads with pared-back production; familiar tunes wiped clean of all the fuss. Highlights include O Holy Night and his goosebump-inducing take on Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.

Think of this effort as being like Feehily’s own little Christmas concert: you can almost see him sitting at a Westlife-style high stool, surrounded by a few hundred tinsel-wrapped candles… and you won’t even miss the other guys.

A Christmas 2017 Gift For You From Trash

by Dan Bull

Looking for something new to put on this Christmas Day and drown out the family rows? Perhaps they’ll even soundtrack the happy times?! 2017 has been incredibly generous for festive LPs, so we’ve whittled down the best of them. And as The Killers aren’t delivering their usual, annual Christmas single (seriously, if you haven’t heard Boots or Joseph, Better You Than Me add them to your Xmas playlist immediately), there are a few stand-alone tracks at the end too. Like the little gift to go with the big gift, because no matter how old you are, one present is never enough..

Mark Feehily: Christmas
Best for: Walking through the city and pretending you’re the romantic lead in a Christmas film

Not so many moons ago, Christmas was primetime for Westlife. They scored a number one with I Have A Dream/Seasons In The Sun, and ensured that a new album was ready to top Christmas lists for generations of women. On his second album since the band’s split, Mark Feehily takes on the Christmas numbers that mean the most to him. While it’s concise, it’s also diverse, opening with Merry Christmas Baby (previously handled by Otis Redding, Elvis Presley and Rod Stewart) before delving a little deeper into the songs we’ve come to associate with St Nick. The end result is a classic sounding collection that will also bring back memories of Christmas in the 90s and early 00s for long-time fans.

Mark Feehily reveals the REAL Mariah Carey

Diva’s backstage antics uncovered

MARIAH Carey arrives into the UK in just a few weeks time.

By Jack Hardwick, Exclusive

The pop superstar with play a string of shows around the country as well as London’s iconic O2 Arena.

Supporting her is former Westlife singer Mark Feehily.

After releasing his debut solo album Fire in 2015, Mark is back with a special Christmas album for the festive period.

Christmas will be released on Friday December 1.

Chatting about the record, Mark told Daily Star Online: “Westlife was a big pop machine but now as a 37-year-old man it is nice to be in control of my life.

“It is nice to make my own decisions musically.

“I have been enjoying that a lot recently.”

The Irish star continued: “I have had the idea for a Christmas album for a number of years and some of songs as well, but in terms of deciding to release it this year that was more later in the day.

“It wasn’t too rushed, but the thing is I couldn’t think of a better opportunity than to release this Christmas album alongside the UK Mariah shows.”

Opening up about the diva, Mark said: “There is a big backstory with Mariah and Westlife as we worked with her before.

“We share share the same agent. I was told I would be the opening act if she even had one but I took it with a pinch of salt.

“The thing is you hear a lot of things like that in the industry but then a few months ago I got the call to say I was confirmed.”

These past weeks Mariah fans Stateside have been left heartbroken after the star cancelled a string of shows due to illness.

However, Mark insists the superstar has no plans to pull out at the eleventh hour.

“According to everyone at my side the UK shows are 100% going ahead,” he explained.

“When I heard about the cancelled shows I did call up my agent to check if she was ok.

“When someone gets ill everyone assumes that’s it, everything is cancelled.

“Mariah only cancelled the first few concerts before the UK to make sure she is in top condition for the rest of the tour.”

The 47-year-old may be one of the biggest stars on the planet but it seems she hasn’t compleately lost her roots – despite countless horror stories.

Revealing the real Mariah and how she operates behind closed doors, Mark explained: “In past shows I did with her when I was in Westlife Mariah has always sent someone down to see us.

“She would be like ‘I wanna see the boys.’

“A couple of times she sent the message to come and see her in the dressing room.”

He added: “I’m sure I’ll get to see her again this time around.

“I don’t know when she’s flying in and out but i’m sure we will say ‘hi'”.
