Get into the holiday season with “This Light”

[additional-authors]
December 9, 2015

“My favorite part of the holidays are all of the lights decorating the cities. The lights hanging on people’s houses and on tree-lined streets put up by the city, the candle light at holiday dinners, the light reflecting off the snow, and of course, the figurative light in people’s eyes of opening up presents, coming home and seeing old friends, and reconnecting with family. Light is a unifying subject matter in songs that is used over and over, but I wanted to re-imagine the idea with both those figurative and literal meanings of why it’s so special to me during the holiday season.” — Jesse Macht

“This Light” was co-written with James Smith (The Spring Standards) while Jesse Macht was on tour in New York City, supporting his newest album, Suitcase Heart. 

The video was directed and edited by Jesse Rosen, and stars Jesse’s actual family, who all reside in Los Angeles, including his mother and father, family historian Suzanne Macht and actor Stephen Macht, brothers Ari, television and film editor, and Gabriel, actor (Suits), and sister Julie, fundraising executive at Temple Emanuel in Beverly Hills.
