FESTIVE fun had disappeared out of the Christmas season for a Gedney Dyke singer-songwriter.

So rather than sit through another “boring” December, Jason Fox has penned a new song to cheer everyone up.

“I just write songs all the time,” said Jason (22), of Main Street.

“The Christmas single has only been written very recently. It’s just a bit of fun – a cheery, Christmas spirit thing.

“When you listen, it makes you smile.”

Good Rocking Christmas is currently available to preview and download on iTunes for 79p and will soon feature on Amazon and Tesco’s entertainment website.

“All my friends and family love it,” said Jason. “The last few Christmases have been a bit boring so I thought I would do something different.”

However, Jason does not believe he will be competing for the coveted Christmas number one spot on the Top 40 singles chart.

“I cannot expect to compete,” he said. “I just enjoy writing and I enjoy recording.”

But Jason, who works as a self-employed gardener, doesn’t hold back on The X Factor, which could be a contender for the top spot, branding the show “rubbish”.

He said: “I auditioned three or four years ago. I got the train and made the journey to the Emirates Stadium (in London).

“I spent three hours waiting outside, three hours inside.

“I got into the room, stood on the line and he told me I had the right voice but the wrong song.

“The person who went in before me was fantastic but was told no and instead they chose an old woman singing Moon River.”

Earlier this year, Jason wrote the single I Got You to help raise money for Diabetes UK.

It is the title track to Jason’s second album.
