Listen to and Support The Optimum Impact of Hope #MoreInCommon #NewMusicFriday


This year musically speaking has been a very good one for me indeed with so far two albums and two singles released. Friday 28th October is no exception in terms of new music. Alongside my new single Could You Ever Be at Peace with Yourself? I am very happy and honoured to announce that I am supporting the Hope Not Hate #MoreInCommon compilation which will be released on Bandcamp 28/10/16 with my track The Optimum Impact Of Hope. The track will be available only on this release. You can stream the track below via SoundCloud. The track was mastered gratis as way of donation by Loz Gill at Fat As Funk Mastering. Please support this important charity release by buying a copy of the whole compilation here for only £5 GBP. More information on the nearly 100 artists involved in this compilation can be found here in an article on God is in the TV ZineSimon Tucker, the organiser of this release has written a great blog on how the idea for this fabulous and diverse compilation came about. It’s really well worth a read.
