Musicians get Together for “Christmas Of Hope”
Twas’ on 16th September when music artist James Millier came up with this inspirational idea to create a Christmas charity single with a number of independent music artists. Straight away he approached his producer pal Olli Daffarn from Blue Dot Studios who he had worked with quite a few times on his music and thanks to Olli due to working with many people in the music industry he recommended to James that he should work with songwriter Jenny Deacon who is the musical director of the Sweet Charity Choir.
During this period, the Help Musicians charity accepted the offer to be the chosen charity for the Christmas single. Once that had happened it was onto writing the Christmas single where James sent over the lyrics to Jenny who was the key songwriter on the single and then afterward Olli brought his producing skills to the song. Once the single was written all the music artists who consists of Elyse Aeryn, Sam Jefferson, ELA, Michael Parma, Maddisun, Slick Division with Jenny Deacon and James Millier provided the main vocals for the single and formed the group Musicians Together along with all the members of Sweet Charity Choir recorded the vocals for the single as well.
Musicians Together are eight independent music artists from the UK and Canada who consists of Elyse Aeryn, Michael Parma, Maddisun, Slick Division, ELA, Sam Jefferson, Jenny Deacon and James Millier. The group have come together to support Help Musicians, the UK independent charity for professional musicians, many of whom find themselves in very difficult times and are the lifeblood of the music industry.
