Waiting for that holiday spirit to kick in? Well, look no further than the new single by Edmund Bagnell, an immensely talented violinist and vocalist who’s performed with Broadway legends such as Patti LuPone, Kristin Chenoweth, and Audra McDonald — and has even performed at the Vatican. “Wrapped Up in Your Love” with music and lyrics by Edmund, is an original holiday song “inspired by the classics but with a contemporary feel.” He says he wanted to write a Christmas love song that made him smile.“I love the holidays!” declares Edmund. “It’s my favorite time of year.

I love the traditions, the food, and especially the music. I released a Christmas album, Christmas at Home, a couple of years ago and enjoyed the process of recording it so much.

I’d been itching to write my own holiday song ever since releasing that album, and the timing was right this year. I love that holiday music is evergreen, and people return to the same songs year after year, and my hope was to write a song that could become a part of that tradition.” Edmund is known for being a member of the chart-topping, all-gay string quartet Well-Strung.

His first big break came when he was cast as Tobias during his senior year at NYU in the first national tour of John Doyle’s Tony-winning revival of Sweeney Todd (opposite Tony-winner Judy Kaye).
