Lemonade Marinade raise much needed funds for Pieta House with latest single
Following up from previous release Venus and Me, Lemonade Marinade have today released the feel good, mellow-pop song It’s Good To See (That Some Things Still Shine So Bright). Both songs have been released in aid of Pieta House and relay a message of encouragement and hope in these uncertain times. The risk of suicide has spiralled over the past couple of months and Pieta House offers an environment set up to help reduce this. To date, Pieta has given counsel to over 45,000 people. This May the charity had to cancel their ‘Darkness Into Light’ event losing much needed funds. With this new single Lemonade Marinade hope to help raise funds and ensure Pieta can continue their vital work.
Written by Westport based songwriter and producer David Dee Moore and featuring the smooth, Karen Carpenter-esque vocals of Janet Henry, the song is backed by a veritable super-group of experienced musicians including 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.
