Daphney Hilton (2013)
Available at http://daphneyhilton.bandcamp.com
Daphney Hilton creates holiday nostalgia with her rendition of “Noel,” fashioned from the traditional carol, “The First Noel.”
Hilton’s “Noel” is a cozy jazz/soul remake of the Christmas hymn, textured with her sultry alto and melodic background repetitions of “Noel, Noel, He is the king of Israel.”
The single is also featured on the project, Silverwood Holiday Music, Vol. 1.
