"WISHES FOR CHRISTMAS"  
(1)
SNOWFLAKES ARE FALLIN'
THROUGH THE MOONLIGHT'S BRIGHTEST SHINE
UPON THE WINDOW SILL
SCENERY FROM A FAIRY TALE
IN YOUR THOUGHTS, LOVING PRAISE
HOPING THE VERY BEST FOR ALL OF US

(2)
SO WE'LL BE WRITIN' OUR NOTES
FOR FATHER CHRISTMAS WITH THIS IN MIND
IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR MY FRIENDS
TO OPEN UP YOUR HEART TO FIND OUT
WHAT IS THE REAL MEANING OF THE WORD LOVE

CHORUS:
THERE'S A SHOOTING STAR 
SOARING THROUGH THE SKY
MAY ALL OUR SWEET WISHES COME ALIVE
LIKE GOIN' ON A SLEIGHRIDE

(3)
NOEL TREES ARE TWINKLIN' 
IT'S HOLIDAY TIME AGAIN 
SO CLOSE TO A BRAND NEW YEAR 
DECEMBERS ARE ALL THE SAME 
TINY TOTS COUNTING DAYS
WAITING FOR THE HOLY NIGHT

(4)
WE SHALL SEND OUT OUR HOPES
TO THE UNIVERSE FROM DEEP INSIDE
KNOWING IT SOUNDS LIKE AN OLD REFRAIN
OH, HOW WE'VE LEARNED SO MUCH,
IT'S ALL ABOUT LOVE 
LOVE AND PEACE IN OUR WORLD NOW

CHORUS:
THERE'S A SHOOTING STAR 
SOARING THROUGH THE SKY
MAY ALL OUR SWEET WISHES COME ALIVE
LIKE GOIN' ON A SLEIGHRIDE
SANTA'S SLEIGHRIDE

INSTRUMENTAL:

(5)
LET'S OPEN UP OUR HEARTS AT CHRISTMAS
AND EXPRESS TO THE WHOLE WORLD
TO THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD KINDNESS AND LOVE

CHORUS:
THERE'S A SHOOTING STAR 
SOARING THROUGH THE SKY
MAY ALL OUR SWEET WISHES COME ALIVE
LIKE GOIN' ON A SLEIGHRIDE
SANTA'S SLEIGHRIDE

JUST TO HEAR 
THE SOUND OF A SILENT NIGHT
JUST TO HEAR 
THE SOUND OF A SILENT NIGHT

The Buzz on Daniel

“I love adding a taste of music to my audio segments. I searched long and hard for a perfect, melodic tune. I like Daniel's "In Between" best.” 
Thomas Wilmer, National Public Radio, California

“I absolutely LOVE Daniel Casavant’s music. I see it as a sort of an indie folk version of Bruce Springsteen with a little Cat  Stevens thrown in for good measure.  Very cool vibe and I could really see him having huge worldwide success.”  Ken McMeans, Ken McMeans Presents...Representing National Country Artists & Tours, United States

"Daniel's voice is engaging and distinctive and I love it!  Daniel's love of life comes to lifein this song - an uplifting ode to hope.  It would do very well in the gospel/Christian genre."  Elissa Lansdell, Former host of CMT (Country Music Television) Canada

"Terrific intellectual property.  Good on ya - great song."  Ronnie King, The Stampeders – recipient of the Socan Lifetime Achievement Award

“One of Montreal’s most eclectic musicians.  Since this is radio, let me just describe that you can’t imagine the joy on Daniel’s face when he performs. I love the raspy voice… a lot of fun to listen to.  I love listening to musicians that know what they are doing!”  Barry Morgan, The Barry Morgan Show, CJAD Radio, Montreal

“I quite enjoy Daniel’s music. He’s got a really nice voice and his music doesn’t sound like anybody else’s and these days and ages it is hard to come up with a really unique sound. It is really a pleasure to play you on the show.”  Chris Sturgess-Olliffe of Insomnia Radio Canada

''Daniel Casavant crosses the boundaries between roots and intelligent commercial idioms with a wide expanse of styles and influences in both his writing and vocal performances - one to watch in my opinion!"   Internationally renowned singer/songwriter Steve Payne, United Kingdom

“Daniel was very personable and easy to talk to...allowing me to help bring awareness to his beautiful music.”  Diana Broomfield, WDGP Radio, Maryland

“When speaking to Daniel Casavant his charming accent and warmth immediately makes you feel his passion for his music. Born in Montreal, Quebec, this singer/songwriter has it all; a great look, musical talent and a flair for writing wonderful songs.”  Sandy Graham, Editor-in-Chief, Cashbox Canada

"Don't be fooled by a song title like "I Will Be A Real Cowboy" because Daniel Casavant is no cowboy in training. He's much more of a soul man, instead. While folk music also enters the musical picture, "Once In A While" plays to Casavant's strength - the soul ballad. He sounds a little like Cat Stevens at times, as well, which only makes everything better. These are well-developed songs by a true pro, so it's easy to ease into listening to Daniel Casavant.”  
Dan MacIntosh, Indie Music

"The sound of experience. This artist has been on the road for a while, and it shows! A great musician, who knows how to create a melody that, stays in your head and your heart, after only one hearing. And what a voice, just like sand: all at once rough and soft, warm, penetrating, it can caress your ears or blast away your armor and reach your heart. Do I dare saying lie a mix between Peter Gabriel and Randy Newman? I think I will...Dan's album is now my highway companion, when I'm alone on the road, in the dark of the night. Bravo!"  Jean-François Vézina, CD Baby
