About the song
Christmas Love Song, sung by Nick Barstow, was composed by Oliver Howlett and James Long, founders of Royola.
The song examines commercialism at Christmas, and what Christmas means in an ever-changing world.
Nick Barstow is an acapella master, and was the MD of Out Of The Blue (the Oxford Choir) and a lead singer when they appeared on Britain’s Got Talent. He now sings in acapella group Afterparty. They frequently perform at venues across London.
Oliver composed the essence of the song on Christmas day in 2012. Lyrics were later added by James, and the song finished by both. It was recorded and produced in 2014, using a home studio, and several session musicians.
