LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 15, 2011) - "Magic Holiday" is more than Richard Kincaid's enchanting breakthrough single -- it's a full-on celebration of a classically trained vocalist finally having the guts to leave the corporate treadmill behind for good and return -- critical accolades for his powerhouse pipes in tow -- to his first love.

Caught up in the whirlwind of C-level madness (being CFO, COO and finally CEO) at Equity Office Properties Trust -- the largest publicly traded office real estate company in the U.S. -- the Chicago based singer ( spent years keeping company with some of the country's top financial and corporate brass.

With the release of "Magic Holiday" -- penned and produced by Kincaid's multi-talented musical partner David Taylor II ( -- Kincaid has found a much hipper crowd to hang with: My Chemical Romance, The Band Perry, Lifehouse, P!nk and Katy Perry.

Those are the superstars currently surrounding him on the FMQB AC40 Chart. Its title a self-fulfilling prophecy, "Magic Holiday," the #2 added track of the week, just made the leap to #33. Kincaid had some cool company in the studio as well; the song features backing vocals by famed singers Arnold McCuller and Kate Markowitz, both of whom have recorded and toured with James Taylor for years.

The success of "Magic Holiday" is just a warm up for Kincaid's upcoming full length album Mosaic, which features a eight powerfully produced cover songs (from a rousing gospel-tinged version of Elton John's "Don't Let The Sun Go Down on Me" with McCuller and Markowitz to "Ain't No Sunshine" and "Tracks of My Tears") and four Taylor originals. The tracking reflects a rich and fascinating array of Kincaid's life experiences.

Fired by a blend of pop, jazz and blues influences, Mosaic features a backing band of some of The Windy City's most prominent musicians.

The album is a follow up to Kincaid's 2010 debut Return, also produced by Taylor and featuring the same musicians. It is set to be released on Taylor's label House of DT Records.
