Sounds From Lockdown is a project based in Liverpool, connecting members of the community to musicians during the Covid-19 pandemic. We're asking members of the community to send in a short video, requesting a song that's meant something to them during this challenging time. We then hand the request over to artists to cover the song.

Help Musicians is an independent UK charity for professional musicians of all genres, from starting out through to retirement. They help at times of crisis, but also at times of opportunity, giving people the extra support they need at a crucial stage that could make or break their career. For almost 100 years, Help Musicians has been providing help, support and opportunities to empower musicians at all stages of their lives.

The artists performing on the track include iconic Liverpudlian treasures such as:

Keith Xander from Xander and the Peace Pirates

 April Moon

 Tina Riley

 Mike Smith and West end star John Coates.

 

The backing track includes:

Harpist Susan Lambert

 The Airhorns and Liverpool drum troupe – Katumba.

 

In addition, local school Florence Melly’s Year 5 and 6 pupils feature on the vocals, reminding us that children are inspired by music which allows them to be creative and expressive.
