Before Christmas - Josh Whitehouse
Before Christmas is the latest release by British musician-come-actor Josh Whitehouse for the Netflix film The Knight Before Christmas. Written from the perspective of Whitehouse’s character within the film, Sir Cole, Before Christmas shares the moment in which he begins to fall in love with co-star Vanessa Hudgens’ character, Brooke.
The song first came about when Whitehouse met with the film’s director, Monika Mitchell, two weeks prior to filming. Having discovered that both Whitehouse and Hudgens were singers, they saw a great opportunity to include an original soundtrack alongside the film.
Whitehouse then set to work writing and recording parts for guitar, bass, keys, percussion and more, and experimented with both solo and duet versions of the track before sending off the first demo. Soon after, he called in his friend and fellow High Cross Society band member, Fiachra Mac Oireachtai, to bring extra flare to his previous recording. Layering together sounds of Christmas bells, percussion elements and backing vocals, the track was quickly brought to a new level.
With production from John Hendicott, and a final addition of a live string section by Dominic Johnson, the end result is a classic tune that is sure to get you in the festive spirit!
