Sara Bareilles to be featured on Holiday Album

In the year of the female singer-songwriter, Epic Records and Hotel Café have partnered up to release Hotel Café Presents Winter Songs – a compilation of both original recordings as well as classic holiday tracks sung by a lineup of female singer-songwriters including many who have been associated with Hotel Café including Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Brandi Carlile and KT Tunstall. The star-studded album, which will be released on October 14 will also feature an exclusive medley of the traditional folk song, “Auld Lang Syne” from which all proceeds on U.S. sales will benefit Susan G. Komen For The Cure.

On making Hotel Café Presents Winter Songs, singer Sara Bareilles had this to say, "I honestly never thought I would ever be on a Holiday album, but when the idea of the Hotel Cafe putting one together came about, I was really excited. I was honored to be a part of a compilation showcasing the incredible female talent at the Cafe, and Ingrid Michaelson and I wrote a song specifically for this project. I'm really looking forward to sharing it. The entire album will be incredibly beautiful."

Included on this unique album are five incredible original recordings starting off with a stunning recording of “Winter Song,” a gorgeous duet of which Sara Bareilles co-wrote and recorded with Ingrid Michaelson. Other originals include, “The Heartache Can Wait” which Brandi Carlile penned, “Misletoe” from Colbie Caillat, “All My Bells Are Ringing” from newcomer Lenka, and the sassy “Maybe Next Year (X-Mas Song,)” sung by Meiko.
