Gather 'round the open fire for Chimneyside Chats - a monthly feature with holiday stories from our favorite artists. See what's in their stockings this year as they reminisce on Christmas memories, share their favorite recipe and more! Here's what Reaven lead vocalist Romeo Bassi had to say:

I had many beautiful and special Christmases throughout the years, but the last one in 2020 was really unique in its own way.

The world was going through a very rough period; I wasn’t able to see my loved ones easily. COVID was here. But, in this troubled time I was spending almost all my time working in my recording studio with my drummer six days out of seven. We tried to exist as artists without being able to perform on stage. I could have said that it was a hard time for us, and indeed it was, since we cancelled our tours, but it was also a time of happiness. I spent last Christmas telling myself that I’ve been lucky to have some extraordinary people around me and that this last Christmas was a very good way to think of what is truly important.

 This picture with my drummer, Vincent Fernandes, and I laughing and the little Santa with the Reaven pillow guitar is enough to remind me that, whatever happens, we have the chance to live this passion together and be happy to live it after 21 years of friendship.
