This song isn't just sugar and spice and all things nice, it's a sprinkle of Christmas cheer, light and faith bound together in an uplifting and cozy style through the darkness of 2020. Baez has had quite the impact so far in her career, particularly with her YouTube channel, where she is known for creating parody music videos which have caught the attention of the likes of Lizzo, but now she is taking the time to focus on her own music, shining light on things that need to be said.
The beauty in simplicity glistens throughout the production, with shakes of festival bells and runs of gentle raindrop sounds indulging you in the delights of the festive season.

The song is a cup full of love and easement. Despite all of the complications and troubles of 2020, Baez hopes this song will elevate you out of the depths of darkness. For all those recovering from the shock wave of the year and the effects it has left behind this song was made for you to feel untroubled, happy and safe for a while. Baez says, “the holidays might feel dark and cancelled in a sense this year, and I hope this song reminds others of the importance of the season and what truly matters most." "Christmas Candlelight" is a dose of what you didn't know you needed.
