This is a song that I’ve just written with my close friend Danny Lee.
About a week ago I dreamt the verse and chorus of a song with the really hooky first line of “ Hello Hello” . I didn’t think much of it at the time and played it to my wife Claire a few days later. She said she really liked it and told me to get to work on a song for the NHS and and essential workers.
I Immediately rang Danny and played the chords and melody down the phone asking him for some more lyrics and a middle 8 . He sent me a full new version of the song within an hour and a half and I started working on it .Unfortunately Danny couldn’t get to the studio because of the lockdown so I had to do the work of playing and singing on the track aided by Claire .In constant contact over the phone and internet we followed the progress of the Covid 19 and compiled a video using poignant up to date photographs.
This is dedicated to all those fearless workers out there on the front line risking their lives to look after us..We have also set up a just giving page Supporting NHS staff and volunteers caring for Covid-19 patients.
