Lemonade Marinade release their second single during these uncertain times, again it’s for the Irish mental health charity Pieta.
Following up from the acclaimed song ‘Venus and Me’ the Irish lockdown band release the joyful catchy pop infused ‘It’s Good To See (That Some Things Still Shine So Bright)’ on Friday September 25th 2020on all musical media platforms.
Both songs relate lyrically to the chosen charity and relay a message of encouragement and hope, showing there’s enough light in the world from its beauty and actions to keep hearts illuminated.
The risks of suicide has spiralled out of control and Pieta has an environment set up to help to reduce this and has given counsel to over 45,000 people. This May the charity had to cancel their ‘Darkness Into Light’ event losing much needed funds and so the band has reacted in a small way to help with ta collection of songs.
‘It’s Good To See (That Some Things Still Shine So Bright) was written by songwriter and producer David Dee Moore but this time he’s left the vocal duties to the beautiful voice of Belfast songstress Janet Henry. A smooth performance reminiscent of a Karen Carpenter or a Rita Coolidge.
The slick accompaniment comes from a band that David Dee Moore
handpicked to add years of musical experience and creativity. These include Nick Scott (Gilbert O’Sullivan, Mary Black) on bass, Colin Henry (Nancy Griffiths, Charlie McGettigan) on dobro, Fintan Hanley(Vickers Vimy) on mandolin, Brian McAteer(Phil Coulter, Alisdair Frazer) on strings, the folk duo Cathryn Craig (Righteous Brothers, Chet Atkins) and Brian Willoughby (Strawbs, Mary Hopkin) on nylon guitar and project producer, arranger David Dee Moore (Liam Clancy, Juliet Turner, Brian Kennedy) on guitars.
The track was mixed by Grammy nominees Chris O’Brien and Graham Murphy at The Production Suite Dublin and mastered by Richard Dowling at Wav Mastering Limerick.
