The Dharma Initiative is back at it again with another original song.

This time, it’s for another somber reason.

Over the summer, the Hampton Roads based band released the song “Walk With Me,” a joint effort with local hip-hop artist Mr. Moe. The song was a collaboration made all from quarantine and without the artists ever meeting face-to-face.

Now gearing up for the holiday season, The Dharma Initiative has a new song called “What Is Christmas Without You?”

“My wife Megan and I wrote it as a love letter to all our family and loved ones that we are unable to see this year,” Zach Moats, founder and keyboardist for the band, wrote in an email.

The song’s vocals are sung by Megan Sloggie-Moats, featuring Scott Davis on drums, recorded remotely from California.

You can listen to the song on The Dharma Initiative’s Bandcamp page here. Listeners can buy the digital track with a $1 donation or more.
