No Kiss Under The Mistletoe is an award winning Folk/Americana style Christmas song that looks at the festive period from an alternative point of view. We hope you love it as much as we've loved making it!
Cardiff based roots songwriter Phil Thomas approached Lights And Lines earlier this year to talk about putting a collaboration together to perform his unique song that explores Christmas time from the perspective of a homeless veteran. Naturally after hearing this beautiful tune we jumped at the chance!
A heartwarming and thought-provoking song, No Kiss Under The Mistletoe tells the tale of a homeless veteran contemplating the upcoming holiday period from his makeshift home in a shop doorway. As he hears the sounds of church bells and children singing he reflects on childhood Christmases and looks ahead to his own plans for Christmas day.
No Kiss Under The Mistletoe is an award winning song, receiving a Commended Entry in the UK Song Writing Competition 2020, and a Four Star Rating in a category with hundreds of entries.
The song has now been lovingly recreated by a collaboration of Lights And Lines affiliated artists performing as The Subway Choir in time for its full worldwide release, just in time for Christmas.
Listen out for guitars and vocals by Kelly Kintner (of The Kintners), additional vocals by Iona James, Kev Sharp (of This Might Be Music) on keys, and Banjo, Harmonica, and Stylophone added by Orange G. The song was mixed by Mixed By Adam and mastered by GRIM17.
