Building upon its acclaimed reputation as a premier presenter of noteworthy emerging and established independent music, New York City's summer-oriented Seaport Music Festival debuts its latest venture: Seaport Music Records.

First up for SMR is the release of This Christmas, a retro-styled, alternative holiday single by The Elves of Heaven, featuring Martin Clancy. And in the spirit of the holiday season, the single is being offered up as a free stocking stuffer!

In conjunction with the release of This Christmas, Clancy will become the first Seaport Music Records Artist in Residence. He is commissioned to "create, collaborate, and produce" a series of releases for the label over the course of the next two years.
