In Our Christmas Stocking: Lisa Mills

Alabama-based blues-country-soul-gospel chanteuse LISA MILLS recently sent us a pair of seasonal songs she’s recorded but never released on CD. One is a nice, tender vocal-and-guitar take on “Silent Night,” the other is an original song written by Leslie Brenner and Rick Hirsch, “Red, Green and Blue,” a decidedly blue Christmas meditation that Mills turns into a Christmas torch song, so beautiful but so sad.
